BBQ Chicken Pizza

Last time I made homemade pizza, I literally spent hours making & monitoring the dough. And it tasted just like... pizza crust. I opted to use Pillsbury Pizza Crust this time because it was 1- on sale. 2-easy. 3-tasted exactly the same. 
I used fresh cilantro from my little herb garden! When we first moved in, we wanted to find something we could use as a firepit- one of Michael's friends brought an old tractor rim over as a housewarming gift. But I ended up taking over and turning it into my own little herb garden. My herbs are getting really big, and all of them are thriving. I'm excited to have so many fresh herbs at my disposal. 
 This is the finished product! For some reason, I can NEVER get my pizzas to be round or square, they always end up being some weird combination of the two. But taste-wise, it ended up exceeding my expectations.

BBQ Chicken Pizza

  • Pillsbury Pizza Crust
  • 1/2 c. BBQ sauce (I used Famous Dave's Rich & Sassy)
  • 1 1/2 c. Mozzarella, shredded (I used low-fat)
  • 1/2 c. Cheddar, shredded
  • 1 chicken breast, grilled & cubed (leftover chicken would make this even easier)
  • 3 T. Cilantro
  • Jalapenos (optional)

  1. Preheat the oven and roll out the pizza dough according to the package's instruction. Pre-bake the dough 2-3 minutes less than directed. *I used a nonstick, dark pan- so I rolled out the dough as thin as I could, then pre-baked it at 425 degrees for 6 minutes. I just hate when they dough isn't fully cooked in the center, blegh.
  2. Once the dough is pre-baked, spread the BBQ sauce over the dough. Top with remaining ingredients. Bake as directed on the package *I baked it for 12 minutes, then broiled it for about 1 minute so the cheese could get a little brown.


  1. Try combining two of your recipes here. I make all my pizza with a beer bread crust and it is so extra yummy!! I spread it out on a stone and bake it for 15 minutes at 400, take it out and top it and bake still all melted and gooey

The greatest Queso that ever lived.

Ingredients: (And.. 3/4 lbs. ground beef, browned and drained)
Cut the queso into cubes. Throw it into the crockpot. Add the browned and drained ground beef. Add two cans of Rotel (drained) and one can of diced green chiles (undrained). Mix everything together (I know.. not the most attractive..) & melt on low for 2-3 hours, or high for one hour. Once everything is melted, keep the crock pot on low until this happens.
3/4 lbs. lean ground beef, browned and drained*2 lbs. block of Velveeta, cubed2 (10 oz.) cans Rotel (original, mild, or hot- whatever your preference), drained1 (7 oz.) can diced, roasted green chilesCombine all the ingredients in a crock pot. Melt on low until smooth (approx. 2-3 hours) or high (approx. 1 hour). Once melted, keep crockpot on low.*I've also made this with ground turkey and ground elk- each were equally delicious!

Lazy Dessert.

Lemon Meringue Pie & Tiramisu just seemed too ambitious for tonight. So I made...
Lazy Ice Cream Cake. Ingredients: 12 ice cream sandwiches, any flavorIce cream, any flavor- softenedIce cream topping, such as caramel, hot fudge, strawberry, etc.Whipped Topping Line an 8" x 8" pan with saran wrap. Using half the sandwiches, make a single layer. 
Cover the ice cream sandwiches with softened ice cream- try to make an even layer.  I used about 1/3 of a tub of Cookies 'n Cream.
Cover the ice cream with a thin layer of hot fudge. It looks... not beautiful.
Finish the layers off with the remaining ice cream sandwiches.  Throw the pan in the fridge for about an hour so the ice cream can harden.
Once the ice cream has hardened, invert the pan onto the plate you'll serve it from. "Frost" the cake with the whipped topping.
I tried to get fancy and made lines of caramel & chocolate sauce, then dragged a toothpick in alternating directions to create the design. Return the cak…

Buffalo Chicken Dip

Have you ever heard of Engagement Chicken? Supposedly, it's a magical recipe that results in boyfriends wanting to marry their girlfriends. I'm not making this up- it was published in Glamour magazine. It has it's own Wikipedia page. Granted I've never made Engagement Chicken, I don't believe it. I think the real way to a man's heart is through Buffalo Chicken Dip. 
There are two ways to make this- I'm a fan of the crockpot method because the dip can stay warm and its the easiest to transport, but both are equally delicious!
