Why Everyone Loves BBQ Pizza (Recipe)

Pizza is always great, regardless of which type you are making, but BBQ pizza offers a special blend of flavors guaranteed to satisfy even the hungriest belly. Although you can order a delivery pizza, nothing beats the taste of homemade pizza. Your kitchen will smell amazing while this is cooking, and the flavor is so fresh and delicious the whole family will be really impressed with it.

Making your own also means you can pick out the ingredients you want to use on it, so if you like extra-hot BBQ sauce or smoky BBQ sauce, choose that.

More Tips for Tasty Homemade Pizza

If you want additional vegetables like mushrooms or corn, go ahead and add those, or you could even have some pineapple chunks on there. That is the great thing about homemade pizza – you can add whatever toppings you want and make it your own. You could make your own dough if you have time, or else simply use a pre-baked crust along with the toppings. You can have this on the dinner table within half an hour, making it a great option for busy weeknights when you are really not in the mood to stand over a hot stove.

All you need to do is spread your chosen BBQ sauce over the pizza crust, then add the remaining ingredients. It will be cooked within about 15 minutes, and you can then serve the pizza nice and hot, with some salad on the side perhaps.

  1. Great recipe! I had some surprise guests over Saturday night to visit our family before the holidays really got busy. I saw this recipe prior to that, and and remembered that it had looked easy to make, and sounded delicious. I decided to try it, and it was quick and easy to make! I did add the sliced bell peppers too! The pizza was a very big hit!
