Semi-Homemade CPK BBQ Chicken Pizza

This is how I make California Pizza Kitchen style BBQ chicken pizza at home without the mess, simply using pre-made pizza dough. It's really delicious and super quick and easy to make. You'll never go wrong with this recipe!


Pre-made THIN CRUST pizza dough
Cooked chicken, shredded or chopped
Red onion, sliced
Mozzarella cheese, sliced or shredded
BBQ sauce (any brand)
Olive oil


1. Heat oven to 400°F. Grease nonstick cookie sheet with olive oil.

2. Unroll dough onto cookie sheet. Prebake dough for 5 minutes.
3. Spread with BBQ sauce. Top with cheese, onions, and chicken. (Go to your local grocery store and buy one of those inexpensive roasted chickens. Or you can replace it with Thanksgiving turkey leftovers).

4. Bake 10 minutes longer or until crust is deep golden brown.
5. Sprinkle freshly chopped cilantro.

Slice and serve!
