BBQ chicken pizza

In recipe on October 3, 2010 at 5:47 pm

I recently took a trip to my home town recently. Funny to pass through all the haunts you used to traipse through as a youth, especially when you were a teenager looking for places to go out with your friends.

In the suburbs, this translated to mall trips and chain restaurants. Places like the California Pizza Kitchen, which, as trashy as it sounds, inspired the recipe today. It was my favorite thing to order at age sixteen, and, well, sometimes a girl still wants a barbeque chicken pizza.

One piece of truth is that barbeque sauce makes everything better. So slathering it on  a pizza instead of tomato sauce was a stroke of genius that I hope made someone a lot of money.

VEG NOTE: Can be made with faux chicken strips covered in bbq sauce.

ED NOTE: No picture this time cause it got devoured too darn fast.
