California Chicken Pizza Recipe

california_chicken_pizza_1
Fans of barbecued chicken will love this California chicken pizza recipe. What I love about making pizza is that it’s so versatile and extremely easy to make. If I am looking for a quick and easy meal, pizza is always a great choice. This California chicken pizza mixes chicken, bqq sauce, and a couple cheeses. The highly of this recipe is the smoked gouda cheese. It really adds a nice smoked flavor to compliment the bbq sauce. Another great ingredient in this recipe is sliced red onions, which go perfect with bbq chicken. If you want to make sure the crust doesn’t become soggy, you can prebake the crust, or at least bake it for a little bit. If you are looking for a delicious pizza recipe, give this one a try. Enjoy.
