We love to make our own pizza’ for football Sundays at our house! We usually do the typical pepperoni and cheese.  This time we were driving home from visiting my parents and Chris asked what we wanted to do for dinner.  He mentioned pizza. I said let’s do something different with the pizza, at first he was “like what” and I suggested a BBQ Chicken pizza at first I could tell he wasn’t a fan, but then he thought for a split second about and we ended up having a discussion over what BBQ sauce we would use.  See, my husband is super picky about his BBQ sauce, he will only use one Vidalia Onion that comes from this tiny little farm stand in South Jersey. Me, on the other hand, I don’t care for store brand,  I like speciality ones but am much more open to different types. So we decided to do half and half, half of his and half of mine.

To be completely honest with you, this was the best pizza we ever made. It wasn’t greasy at all, the crust was perfect! I would do this again and again and again! Speaking of the crust, you can use any pizza dough recipe that you may already like or buy a pre-made one. Personally we use Pillsbury Hot Roll Mix for our dough/crust. It’s super easy to make and takes about 5 minutes to rise.


Pizza dough of your choice

4 to 5 chicken tenderloins cooked and BBQ’d, we used our grill pan to get some texture

BBQ sauce of your choice and the amount depends on flavor you are looking for

1 16 ounce block of mozzarella cheese, freshly shredded


  1. Prepare pizza dough according to directions. Sprinkle some olive oil over the dough. Paint some BBQ sauce over the edges of the dough which will be your crust.
  2. Add cheese to dough and then top with BBQ chicken.  Squeeze extra BBQ sauce over top of the pizza, as much flavor as you would like it to have. We found a few swirls was enough.
  3. Bake in the oven according to your pizza dough directions and the amount of time it also tells you do cook it for. Let it cool for about 5 minutes after removing from the oven. Slice!

When I was doing our menu planning last week, I knew I wanted something that was very easy to throw together when we got home from our long drive from Buffalo Sunday night.  Typically we make our own dough for pizza/boli’s.  But I cheated and used Pillsbury Pizza Crust.  This was SO good.  It tasted so healthy(because it was) but yet had that great taste of a boli. This recipe serves 6 and has 305 calories per serving.


1 package of refrigerated Pillsbury Pizza Crust

1/2 cup freshly shredded mozzarella

2 teaspoons of fresh grated Parmesan

1 cup pasta sauce divided

1 pound of turkey breast, diced

2 teaspoons of milk


  1. Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. Boil a cup of water on medium in a large skillet, add turkey, bring to a boil.    simmer about 8 to 10 minutes. Let cool, then dice.
  2. Unroll the crust into a 14 inch by 12 inch baking sheet.  Spoon half the sauce down the center, lengthwise.
  3. Layer the turkey and mozzarella cheese over sauce. Cut 12 strips of the dough. Fold strips over filling, so they overlap. Brush with milk and sprinkle with Parmesan.
  4. Bake for 12 minutes.  Use remaining sauce as dipping sauce for the boli!
