My husband and I went to San Fransisco to get away for a week! We had such a great time! It was so much fun to try new gluten free foods there! One of my favorites was the BBQ Chicken Pizza at Patxi's Pizza! It was so delicious! I loved the sweet BBQ chicken combined with the smokey bacon and spicy jalapenos! Unfortunately we don't have those restaurants in Utah so I had to try to recreate the pizza. I was pretty excited when I took the first bite! Yum!
BBQ Chicken pizza for me is either really good, or not good at all. I realized while eating at Patxi's why the pizza seemed so much better than any I had before. Bottom line - it was pizza, not just BBQ sauce and chicken on the crust. Let me explain. They put regular pizza sauce on the pizza! Yup, that's the secret! The chicken has BBQ sauce on it, but not the whole pizza. You'll have to try it and let me know what you think!
Here is the order:
Let me break it down:
Use my Yummy Gluten Free Pizza Crust. You can also buy a Udi's frozen crust, or use your favorite gluten free recipe.
This pizza sauce recipe is hands down the best I've ever tasted! Remember, use regular pizza sauce, not BBQ sauce!
Use whatever kind of chicken you like; breasts, chicken tenders, or thighs. Cut about 1 lb into bite-sized pieces and cook in a saucepan over medium high heat with a little olive oil and salt and pepper. Add your favorite BBQ Sauce. My personal recommendation is Sweet Baby Ray's Original. Mix in enough sauce to nicely coat the chicken, and heat through.
Cook 1 lb of bacon. Cool then break into pieces.
My family likes things a little spicy, but not too hot. I chose to cut the jalapeno down one side and take out the seeds. This was perfect because you still had a little kick from the pepper, but it wasn't really hot. Slice the pepper.
Cook the pizza as indicated on the crust recipe.
