These BBQ Chicken Pizzas are a slam dunk for your next party!
Ingredients for Pizza Topping:
1 1/2 cups chopped chicken (grilled, baked or otherwise cooked)
1 1/2 cups chopped red onion (grilled, caramelized)
1/2 cup marinara sauce
1/3 cup barbecue sauce
1 1/2 cups shredded cheeses (equal parts Monterey jack, Cheddar and Parmesan)

NOTE: Betty loves Trader Joe’s, Arabian Joe’s Middle Eastern Flat Bread for this recipe… but any flatbread or pita bread will work.
OR MAKE YOUR OWN PIZZA CRUST
Original Pizza Dough

Garnish for Barbecue Chicken Pizza:
1 avocado sliced into 24 slices
2 chopped green onions (also know as spring onion)
Let’s score some pizza points!
Saute red onion in a small amount of olive oil (or place on the grill). Season with a crack of black pepper and few shakes of crushed red pepper (for some extra kick).
Sauteed seasoned onions will reduce to approximately 3/4 cup. Set aside.
In a bowl combine chopped chicken and sauteed red onion.
Add marinara sauce and bbq sauce.
Stir in shredded cheeses.
Stir all ingredients together. Set aside.
Place flat bread top-side down on grill or top-side up under broiler. Toast the tops of flat bread before spreading chicken mixture on tops.
This ensures a crispier crusts ;)
Spread mixture on tops of flat bread and toss on the grill.
Grill over medium heat until crust is crispy and cheese has melted.
Slice into quarters.
Garnish with a sprinkling of chopped green onions and a slice of avocado. Makes 6 pizzas. Allow 2-3 pieces per person if serving as an appetizer. Allow one whole pizza if serving as a main course. Serve with grilled asparagus and a green salad for a complete game night meal.
