Barbecue Chicken “Pizza”

Barbecue Chicken Flatbread Pizza

Using our quick and easy yoghurt flatbread recipe, we’ve whipped up a pumping “pizza” for all of you. This isn’t any barbecue pizza, making your own sauce brings a certain finesse to the dish. So any of those BBQ base haters, try these boots on, it’s not your typical chain BBQ pizza.

We love making this for big crowds for so many reasons; its simple to make, toppings can easily be adjusted to suit taste, fun to make and share, this list is endless!

We’ve defo been promoting how quick this dish is, and it is! We aren’t denying, but if you do pre plan this dish, marinate your chicken well ahead. The longer the chicken marinates, the more intense flavour we’ll be getting throughout. The Yoghurt Flatbread needs no resting time, so forget all the jarring long hours for pizza dough and substitute it with a flatbread base. Honestly, the taste difference is so subtle and the dough is so light and fluffy!



Why is my flatbread rising in the pan when I cook?

If this happens you can either:

  • When you next roll your pizza dough base, try and get it as thin as possible, you might have some small holes appear but those can be fixed in the pan by smoothing out the dough, 
  • Alternatively, simply grab a fork and push any of the tops down into the dough a bit so it is not thick,
  • In our yoghurt flatbread recipe, we tend to score the rolled out dough, which we have not done here. You may find that scoring the dough helps the base from rising, feel free to lightly score a couple of lines across the pizza base. By scoring the dough we allow air to escape rather than being trapped within the dough.

If you like deep dish style pizza, then obviously the rise and thickness is what you’re living for.


Can I use other ingredients for my topping?

Of course! Why not chucking on some sweetcorn for that classic BBQ Chicken Sweetcorn pizza? It adds a delicious crunch with the sweetness complimenting the barbecue sauce.

If you wanted to try a completely different topping than Barbecue Sauce, why not try out white base “pizzas”? Still using the Yoghurt Flatbread as a dough, we’ve got some delicious vegetable options; Spinach & Ricotta topping, Aubergine & Mozzarella and more.

Get crazy and have fun with this dish. Why not try stuffing the end crust with cheese? 


How to create stuffed pizza crust

  • Place chosen cheese on the outer edges of the flatbread dough base before you’ve added the toppings.
  • Lifting from the bottom on the outer edges, wrap the end of the dough over on top and press gently with your thumb to seal.



Stuffing the crust is super useful if you find that your pan may be too small to fit the pizza dough or you find some areas of the outer edge a lot thicker than others, creating a more even pizza base.

  1. Slice up your onion, pepper and then the chicken.
  2. Next we'll prepare our seasoning mix. Add the marinade ingredients; garlic paste, ginger paste, 1 tablespoon of the barbecue sauce and any seasonings chosen.
  3. Grab a large bowl and chuck in the sliced vegetables with the sliced chicken. Add in half of the seasoning mix into the bowl with the meat and vegetables. The other half of the seasoning will be used in the sauce. Allow the chicken to sit and marinade while we prepare the dough.*
  4. Mix the flour, baking powder and yoghurt together in a bowl until a rough dough starts to form.
  5. Once the dough has just come together, turn over onto a flour dusted tabletop and start to knead.
  6. Keep kneading the dough until light and fluffy, place back in the bowl covered and leave while we prep our toppings. The dough doesn't need to rest or rise, but leaving it for a few minutes allows us to cook our chicken.
  7. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.
  8. Heat a pan on high heat. Add your remaining barbecue sauce (bottle or homemade) and the leftover seasoning to a saucepan and gently heat for 10 minutes, turning your heat to low.
  9. Transfer onion and pepper into the pan. If you find your vegetables start to burn then add a tablespoon or so of cold water (this will sizzle! But it will stop any burning and allow the veg to soften).
  10. After roughly 5 minutes, add the chicken to the pan and cook on a medium heat for 5-7 minutes.
  11. Whilst the toppings are cooking, we will prepare our dough for the base. Quickly knead the dough on a floured surface then split the dough evenly into two portions. You don't have to create two pizzas, other options include 4 smaller pizzas.
  12. Once the dough has been divided, take one half and start to roll it out into a somewhat round circular shape. Try and get the dough to a 2-3mm thickness as it will rise a bit when cooking.
  13. Check on your chicken and sauce - remove from the heat if they are cooked.**
  14. Place rolled out dough onto a heated pan large enough to fit the pizza base and keep on a low heat so that the bottom slowly starts to cook. After a couple of minutes flip the pizza and cook on the other side for a few more minutes.*** The base should start to get a bit of a golden colour. Then take the pizza base out of the pan and onto a surface to add the toppings.
  15. Distribute the sauce on the top of the rolled out pizza dough. Then add your chicken, onions and peppers. Transfer to the oven to cook for 10-15 minutes.
  16. Remove from the oven, portion once cool enough to touch and dig in!
Recipe Notes

*If marinating in advance, then cover the bowl with cling film and pop in the fridge to marinate removing about 15-20 minutes before we’re ready to start assembling and cooking the pizza.

**If you feel confident enough, please feel free to leave the chicken slightly blushing pink as it will cook further in the oven without possibility of the protein becoming dry.

***Alternatively, cook the pizza base on one side and score the top. More details can be found within the post!
