Asian BBQ Chicken Pizza

Alright, this is the follow-up recipe to the Asian BBQ Chicken I posted last week. I have a small family so when I’m planning on having the chicken, I usually just plan on transforming the left-overs into pizza the next day. I really love this pizza. It’s sweet and tangy and cheesy and delicious. During the summer, I always always make all my pizza on the grill anyway, but since you’re using bbq-grilled chicken, it’s extra yummy to have the grill flavors in the dough as well. So if you haven’t tried grilling pizza, give it a shot with this!

You’ll need:
Asian BBQ Chicken, mozzarella cheese, red onion, and fresh cilantro.

(notes on sauce to follow)

Sauce Talk.
For the sauce on this pizza I make a quick batch of Guiltless Alfredo and mix in some of the chicken marinade. This takes planning, because you need to reserve a tiny bit of the marinade when you make it the day before for the chicken, but it adds so much to the overall flavor of the finished product. If you don’t think to reserve the marinade, you could just add a shot of soy sauce to the alfredo, or just use it plain. It would be delish either way, but I really love it with all of the flavors of the marinade mixed in.

So here we go…

1. Make a batch of Guiltless Alfredo Sauce and combine with reserved Asian bbq chicken marinade. The ratios depend on how saucy you like your pizza and how much you’re making. I use about 1/3 C sauce with 1/2 T marinade for a small/medium sized pizza. This dough recipe makes 2 small/med pizzas. (You can just make a half batch of Alfredo sauce, or do a full batch and use the rest of it on pasta the next night!)

2. Follow the instructions for Grilled Pizza. (Of course you could totally make this in the oven too)

3. When it’s time to add toppings, spread sauce on pizza and then a layer of cheese. Top with chicken (I used 3 thighs for one small/med pizza) and sliced red onions, and then sprinkle a little more cheese on top.

4. When it’s done cooking and cheese is melted, remove from heat and sprinkle on chopped cilantro. Eat immediately!

mmm…now that I think about it, I bet pineapple would be great on here too.

  1. I LOVE your website, I have just spent the last 30 min. reading up on grilling a pizza. It’s wonderful how you link everything together so I can go from the Asian pizza to the sauce, dough recipe, silicone brushes, ect.
    Anyway, thanks for all the tips, I think tonight I may just whip up some dough and let my family make their own pizza for dinner. Their going to think I really lost it when I tell them we’re cooking them on the grill!

  2. My sister and I made this last night and it is so very good. We reserved some of the marinade, thickened it up a little and drizzled it over the top of the pizza when we took it out of the oven. DeLiCiOuS! We also added pineapple to it. The alfredo sauce is the best that I’ve ever had!

  3. I did it!! I am so proud of myself. I made this pizza and it actually turned out. It was awesome. Truly. Now, if I can just pare down the 3 hours it took me to make everything I will be all set :).

  4. WOW…WOW…WOW…for the first time my husband and I grilled our pizza. It was amazing! We even scorched the first side (flame was too high), and my husband refuses ever to eat anything burnt…but he ate this and loved it.

    We can't wait to try this again, with less flame. We used your dough recipe, your garlic cream sauce recipe (Amazing too….way better than anything I've had "out" to eat) and your Asian Chicken recipe. We did not use cilantro because we don't like it.

    Thank you ladies!

  5. I make a pizza similar to this except I use a sweet BBQ sauce instead of Alfredo. Sticky fingers Carolina Sweet is awesome. BBQ sauce, BBQ Chicken, Fresh Mozzarella, red onions and a sprinkle of cilantro when it’s done. Life doesn’t get any better!

  6. This was insanely good—we are quite the pizza connoisseurs and this pizza was divine. That marinade with the yummy (definitely does not taste guiltless) alfredo is pure genius. And the crust–perfect crispy crust (baked in the oven on a pizza stone). Instead of grilling, I cooked the chicken with the marinade in my crockpot–shreddy, yummy, flavorful! My kids are already asking when we can have it again. Thanks for our new favorite pizza recipe and congrats on a wonderful blog. I’m just sorry I barely discovered it. I’ve made 10 recipes from it in the past 2 weeks–all amazing! Can’t wait to try the rest!

  7. I just came back to check this recipe before making it again and realized I never told you how AMAZING it was!!! The best part- it takes up half my week of menu planning! Asian BBQ chicken with veggies and rice Monday, Alfredo pasta with breadsticks (double the dough) Tuesday, and Wednesday use the other half of the dough and leftover sauce and chicken for this INCREDIBLE pizza. And it all tastes different enough that we don’t feel like we’re eating leftovers. I love this pizza. Seriously, one of the best things I’ve ever tasted! Thanks!

  8. Oh no!!! Where did the original recipe for the chicken go? I clicked on my bookmark for it and ended up here. The links for it just send me back here too! Eeeek! If you get this soon, can you email me the recipe so it can go on my list for the week? gotmeanick (at) att (dot) net
