  • 1 large pizza crust store-bought or homemade If using store-bought, I like Mama Mary's Whole Wheat Pizza Crust.
  • 1/3 cup + 2 tablespoons barbecue sauce
  • 1 cup grated smoked Gouda cheese divided (Mozzarella works well, too.)
  • 1 cup cooked and shredded chicken I use rotisserie chicken.
  • 1/4 onion thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup canned or fresh pineapple chunks
  • fresh cilantro for topping


  • Preheat oven according to pizza crust instructions and prepare pizza baking pan/stone, if using.
  • Toss 2 tablespoons of barbecue sauce with the cooked, chopped chicken to coat it. Set aside.
  • Spread 1/3 cup (more or less, depending on preference) barbecue sauce over pizza crust. Add a layer of 1/2 cup of cheese over the barbecue sauce. Next, top with chicken, the reserved cheese, sliced onion and pineapple.
  • Bake pizza according to crust instructions. I baked my pizza at 450 degrees F. for about 10 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven, top with fresh cilantro, slice and serve.
