The kosher version of this popular pizza is amazing and surprisingly close to the treif version (just with imitation chicken). Barbeque chicken pizza became all the rage when the California Pizza Kitchen craze made it popular way back. I still remember my non-Jewish friends talking about how good it was. GKC loves this one and my kids request it often.
2 packages pizza dough (I like Trader Joe’s)
1 cup of your favorite barbeque sauce
1 cup tempeh or soy imitation chicken strips
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 red onion, sliced
1 red pepper, sliced
½ cup chopped cilantro
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Heat the olive oil in a large sauté pan. Cook the onions and the peppers until soft, about 6-7 minutes. Remove from heat. Add the imitation chicken strips and the barbeque sauce and mix well.
Roll out the pizza dough and place onto a baking sheet or a pizza stone. Spread the onion, pepper, chicken mixture over the pizza dough. Sprinkle the cilantro and the cheese on top. Then add some kosher salt and pepper to taste.
Bake for 20 minutes, or until cheese is melted and bubbly.
