Barbecue Chicken Pizza

Save to My Recipes

This gluten-free pizza crust bakes golden brown and crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. Paired with a buffalo chicken topping, it’s the pizza to beat.

Difficulty: Medium

Hands-on: 25 minutesTotal: 50 minutes

Serves: 8

Ingredients

  • 2 Tbsp. cornmeal
  • 1 package active dry yeast
  • 1 cup warm water (110°F)
  • 1 Tbsp. sugar
  • 2½ cups gluten-free all-purpose flour
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1⅓ cups barbecue sauce
  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (5 oz. each), cooked and shredded
  • ¾ cup diced red onion
  • 1 medium orange bell pepper, seeded and sliced
  • 2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
  • ½ cup chopped fresh parsley

Directions

  • Preheat a pizza stone in the oven at 450°F. Dust a pizza peel or large cutting board with cornmeal and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, mix yeast, water, and sugar together. Let sit until foamy, about 10 minutes. Stir in flour and oil.
  • Place the dough onto a floured surface and knead with your hands until smooth and soft. Roll out to a circle about ¼" thick. Transfer dough to pizza peel and then to hot pizza stone.
  • Bake for about 12 minutes, or until lightly browned. Remove crust from oven.
  • Spread 1 cup barbecue sauce over the crust. Top with chicken, onion, and peppers. Drizzle with the remaining barbecue sauce.
  • Cover the toppings with the shredded cheese. Return to pizza stone and bake for about 13 minutes, or until cheese is melted. Garnish with parsley before serving.
