This Smoky BBQ Chicken Pizza is an easy and flavorful recipe made with homemade pizza crust. It’s topped with smoky bbq chicken, Gouda cheese, and spinach!
We all love pizza, right? Pizza or some form of flat bread-y substance covered in toppings must easily be one of the most popular foods in the world. I can’t recall a single instance of someone wrinkling their nose and saying ‘Eh, not really’ when asked if they like pizza. Usually people will tell you their favorite kind of pizza. The varieties of pizza are endless – you can go vegan, vegetarian, low-carb, no carb, gluten-free, or meat lover’s supreme topped with two pounds of cheese. I don’t care – I like em’ all (unless there’s pineapple on it in which case I won’t touch it). I have my tried and true standby pizza recipes but switching things up every now and then usually yields some delicious results. You end up with something like this Smoky BBQ Chicken Pizza. It’s smoky, tangy, spicy, a little sweet. Try to stop at just one piece. I bet you can’t.
