Has your dinner routine got the blues? Flatout Flatbread will show you how to turn those blues around and rock your family’s next dinner, with our crowd pleasing BBQ chicken pizza. Your favorite BBQ sauce sets the stage instead of tomatoes. With some shredded chicken, a blend of cheddar and mozzarella, a handful of chopped red onion, and a last minute scattering of fresh cilantro, this flatbread pizza is sure to get a standing ovation from your audience.
Our recipe is a refreshing break from the same old pizzas that everyone around here is used to, and we’ve found that throwing one of these in the oven really satisfies the primal urge to eat barbecue without the hours at the smoker (or the guilt!) Our favorite sauce is from Kansas City, arguably the BBQ capital of the world, but you can use one from your favorite hole in the wall, it doesn’t matter where, as long as you love it. Prep time on the recipe is minimal, too, so you’ll be finished before Bo Diddley finishes one song on the stereo.
Slather the sauce generously on the par baked flatbread, then load it up with a combination of all star ingredients: BBQ sauced shredded chicken keeps it sweet and tender. A sharp cheddar and mozzarella cheese blend keeps it tangy. The red onion ups the flavor ante. And once you pull it out of the oven when everything has melted just right, cilantro adds just the finishing touch to this flatbread. These flatbreads will be gone before they even hit the table, with no evidence they were even there to begin with.
Now look around, what do you see? Just a bunch of happy, satisfied, eaters, and maybe a smudge of sauce here and there. Not an ounce of blues in sight!
