- A man who knows his way around in the kitchen is pretty damn tantalizing. We’re not talking boiling water or frying an egg. While, that’s cool, really knowing what you’re doing and how to whip something together scores major points. If you’re not into frills and want easy food that tastes great, try this recipe for BBQ Chicken Pizza. Is it man food? What is man food, really…hmmm. If there is such a thing…this might count. Try, it out and let me know what you think.

- Cook Time: 32 min
- Level: Easy
- Serves: 4 to 6 servings
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1/2 pound chicken tenders
- 2/3 cup barbecue sauce (recommended: Bullseye Original or try Jack Daniels for a little twist)
- Flour, for dusting surface
- 1 (13.8-ounce) package pizza dough (recommended: Pillsbury Classic)
- 3/4 cup shredded Gouda
- 1 cup shredded mozzarella
- 3/4 cup shredded Parmesan
- 1/2 medium red onion, thinly sliced
- 3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro leaves
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken tenders and saute until golden brown, about 12 minutes. Remove from heat. When chicken is cool enough to handle, dice chicken to yield a little over 1 cup. In a small bowl, toss chicken with 2 tablespoons barbecue sauce. Set aside.
On a floured surface, roll out dough and place on a greased sheet pan. Shape to fill the sheet pan, about a 15 by 10-inch rectangle. Spread remaining barbecue sauce evenly over pizza dough. Sprinkle Gouda, mozzarella, Parmesan, onions, and chicken over top. Bake for 20 minutes or until cheese bubbles. Sprinkle with chopped cilantro and cut into pieces.
Recommended Beer Pairing:
Pilsner Urquell (Czech Republic, $8 per six-pack)
This Czech pilsner (produced since 1842) has a malty, faintly buttery flavor supported by a crisp, palate-cleansing bitterness, which makes it an ideal foil to spicy barbecue sauce, especially when said sauce is slathered over a nondominating meat like chicken or pork. The dry, lingering hoppiness on the finish makes it especially refreshing and easy to drink more than one.
