But why stop at the ordinary? Let’s elevate this beloved classic to a whole new level, using the magic of your own backyard BBQ and the ethical goodness of free-range chickens.

Free-Range Flavor:

Step one: ditch the supermarket chicken and embrace the superior taste of freedom. Free-range chickens, allowed to roam and forage, develop richer, more robust flavors thanks to their varied diet and active lifestyle. This translates to chicken that, once slow-cooked over your smoky coals, infuses your pizza with an unparalleled depth of flavor. Imagine juicy chunks of caramelized chicken, infused with the earthy perfume of wood smoke, each bite a testament to the happy life it once led.

The Art of the BBQ:

Now, onto the star of the show: your BBQ. Forget gas grills and electric ovens; we’re going full-on primal with charcoal and fire. Light those coals, let them smolder into a bed of glowing embers, and prepare for the alchemy of smoke and flame.

Season your chicken generously with a blend of paprika, brown sugar, garlic powder, and a touch of cayenne pepper for a hint of heat. Place it over indirect heat, letting the smoke gently kiss its skin, infusing it with that coveted BBQ essence. Watch the juices bubble and the skin turn a deep, burnished gold, a visual poem of smoky goodness waiting to be devoured.

Building the Masterpiece:

While your chicken dances with the flames, prepare your canvas. Stretch out a homemade dough or choose a high-quality store-bought one. Brush it with a thin layer of olive oil, then spread a generous dollop of your favorite BBQ sauce. Go classic with a sweet and tangy  sauce, or explore bolder horizons with a chipotle-infused Texas twist.

Next comes the cheese. A classic blend of mozzarella and cheddar is always a winner, but feel free to experiment with smoked cheese for an extra layer of smoky complexity. Now, scatter those smoky chicken chunks across the canvas, like jewels on a crown. Don’t forget the onions! Thinly sliced red onions add a welcome crunch and tangy sweetness that cuts through the richness of the chicken and cheese.

A Fiery Finale:

Slide your pizza masterpiece onto the preheated grill, for a quick char on the bottom. Watch the cheese bubble and brown, the edges curling up in a crispy embrace. A few minutes is all it takes for the magic to happen.

Now, the moment of truth. Pull that pizza off the grill, let it rest for a minute, then slice it into steaming triangles of pure delight. Take a bite and let the symphony of flavors explode on your tongue. The smoky char of the chicken, the tangy sweetness of the BBQ sauce, the gooey richness of the cheese, and the crisp freshness of the onions – a perfect harmony of fire, flavor, and freedom.

Beyond the Basics:

This is just the beginning of your BBQ chicken pizza odyssey. Feel free to customize it to your heart’s content. Diced jalapeños for a fiery kick, crumbled blue cheese for a tangy surprise, even a drizzle of creamy ranch dressing for a touch of Americana. The possibilities are endless, as limited only by your imagination and the bounty of your BBQ.

So, gather your friends and family, fire up the grill, or order from Lao Pizza Heaven and let the good times roll (and sizzle!). With a little smoke, a touch of freedom, and a whole lot of flavor, you can create a BBQ chicken pizza that’s more than just a meal – it’s an experience.
