Barbecue Chicken and Jalapeno Pizza

Before I profess my love for this pizza, I thought I would let those of you who asked know that the Snow Cone Cupcakes won their category and were best in show. Check out my cool ribbons! 😉

Anyways, on to the amazing pizza. We eat lots of pizza and with all kinds of toppings. The one thing they all have in common, is the crust. I love this crust. SO easy!

No kneading, no rising, and only 5 minutes of waiting. I can make the dough in 10 minutes. Yes, just 10 minutes. That means I can decide at the last minute that I want pizza and not wait forever for the finished product! Throw the ingredients together in your mixer and let it work for you!

Perfect for busy weeknights or lazy ones or really any time. It’s the perfect start to any flavor pizza. One of my favorites is this barbecue chicken pizza. The combination of slightly sweet barbecue sauce mixed with the heat of the jalapeno peppers and the cheesiness of a mixture of mozzarella and cheddar is perfection. Oh and the smell of the pizza baking. . .definitely makes your mouth water! Good thing it only takes 15 minutes to bake!

So give this a try sometime this weekend! Have a great one!

Just wanted to pop in and let you know I chose this as my personal favorite from last week's Weekend Potluck. I love BBQ chick pizza and this kicked up with the jalapeno...I almost can't stand it! Your crust sounds really great and I can't wait to try it. Thanks for a great recipe and I can't wait to see what you bring this week! Have a great weekend.~Kim

First, I totally knew that your son-cone cupcakes would win - they were amazing! Second, it's pizza night here + i'm about to make a no-rise quick pizza dough, too. It'll be on the blog on Thursday, as long as I can get some good pics tonight! And third, this pizza sounds SO amazingly good!
