Why KJ Loves
Sheet Pan BBQ Chicken Pizza
YOU NEED THIS PIZZA IN YOUR LIFE. My husband John went as far as to say that it was the best bbq chicken pizza he’s ever had! The pickles on top are a serious game changer. Plus, this bbq chicken pizza recipe couldn’t be any easier!
Sheet Pan BBQ Chicken Pizza Ingredients
You can choose whether you want to use store-bought dough or make your own. I love using Trader Joe’s pre-made pizza dough.
Make it easy and grab a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store! Or, roast up some boneless, skinless chicken breasts and shred them to go on top of this pizza.
The sauce you choose can drastically change the flavor profile of your pizza. Sweet. Spicy. Smoky. Choose your favorite! I love Sweet Baby Ray’s.
Grab some mozzarella cheese and shredded cheddar cheese to make this bbq pizza extra decadent and special. You’ll end up with a dreamy, cheesy slice of pizza.
Thinly sliced red onion bakes into the pizza to add some pizazz and color. Not a fan of onions? Leave them out!
Pickles may not sound like the usual bbq chicken pizza topping, but trust me, they MAKE this pizza! Grab your favorite dill pickle slice – I love how fresh these ones are!

Add a challenge.
Try a homemade pizza dough recipe if you’re in the mood to spend a little more time in the kitchen. You can also bake up some chicken breasts and shred your own chicken for the pizza.
Try extra toppings.
After your pizza comes out of the oven, get creative with your extra toppings. The potential combos are numerous!
What’s the best way to reheat leftover pizza?
Re-heat your leftover pizza under the broiler to keep your crust from getting soggy or tough in the microwave. Using an air fryer is another great way to reheat your pizza.
Should I cook chicken before baking on a pizza?
Yes, make sure your chicken is already cooked before you bake it on your bbq pizza. This helps ensure the chicken is fully cooked and safe to eat.
What temperature do you cook pizza on a sheet?
For best results, you’ll want to bake your sheet pan bbq chicken pizza at 450 degrees.
Should I preheat the baking sheet for pizza?
It’s not necessary to preheat your baking sheet before baking your bbq pizza. However, if you want to heat your baking sheet in advance, it will help create a crispier crust. Simply place the sheet pan in the oven while you’re preheating it. Be careful when you transfer your pizza to the pan!
