BBQ Chicken Pizza

First there's the pizza base,

then comes the passata,

then the shredded BBQ chicken,

then the CHEESE,

then the caramelised onion,

then, lastly, the BBQ sauce.

Doesn't that look gorgeous?

And this?

Look at that drippy sauce.

Want a slice?

I had some barbecue chicken left over from the other night, so I thought I'd make pizza... I'm full of good ideas.

BBQ Chicken Pizza

Pizza dough (I make my own -  recipe here)
Tomato passata
BBQ chicken (I used my leftover Barbecue Beer Crockpot Chicken)
1/2 cup freshly grated mozzarella cheese
2 tablespoons caramelised onions (You can caramelise them yourself, or do what I did and use these)
2 tablespoons of your favourite BBQ sauce (I used Sweet Baby Ray's)

Preheat your oven to 230 degrees C fan-forced.

Roll your pizza dough out to your desired thickness. Place it on baking tray (I use a perforated pizza tray) lined with baking paper.

Spread the dough with a thin layer of tomato passata (not too much). Then spread over the chicken and cheese and dollop over the caramelised onions. Finish with a drizzle of BBQ sauce.

Bake the pizza for about 10 minutes, depending on how thick the base is, until golden and the cheese is melted and the base is cooked.
