Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Cut: Cooked Chicken
8 slices bacon
1/2 large onion, chopped
1 red pepper
1 cup (125 ml) Danny's Own Barbecue Sauce
2 cups (250 ml) cooked chopped chicken
2 cups (250 ml) shredded Mozzarella or three cheese blend
2 prepared pizza crusts
Tip:Instead of roasting the red pepper at home, buy a bottle of roasted red peppers. Most large grocery stores carry jars of roasted red peppers. Drain then slice thinly and put on pizzas.
Preheat oven or barbecue to 400F. Roast red pepper, turning occasionally, until skin is charred. Remove from heat and let cool. Remove charred skin, seeds and stem.
In a skillet, cook bacon until crisp. Remove bacon from skillet and drain on paper towels. Remove all the bacon fat from the skillet.
Add onions to skillet and stir cook until onions are soft. Remove onions and let cool slightly. Chop or crumble bacon. Cut red pepper into strips.
Pour ½ cup barbecue sauce onto each pizza crust. Top with each crust with chicken, onion, bacon, red pepper strips and cheese. Bake for 10 minutes, or until crust is crisp. Broil for 3-5 minutes until cheese is bubbling and brown. Remove from oven and cut each pizza into 8 slices. Serve immediately.
** Danny’s Own Barbecue Sauce is the creation of Danny’s Whole Hog Barbecue and Smokehouse in Stony Mountain, Manitoba. It’s available in specialty food and butcher shops. Substitute your favourite barbecue sauce if Danny’s Own is not available.
For individual pizzas, use 4 naan breads instead of 2 pizza crusts.
