Try this delightful and easy BBQ pizza recipe this week. We threw together this pizza last summer and now it is one of my favorites. It’s really easy and I know you will love it!

BBQ Pizza Recipe

You can use leftover rotisserie chicken or I typically throw a few chicken breasts in the Instant Pot (by far my favorite kitchen appliance) and shred them to add on top.

Since we eat a lot of pizza we love adding in a variety. This pizza is the perfect blend of crunchy and soft, sweet with a little spice while being filling and delicious. So if you are looking for a different option for your pizza try this easy BBQ pizza recipe.
