You all know I love to cook, and come up with recipes whenever I can. If I can combine two styles of food or cuisines to make one awesome meal, then I most certainly will. And that was goal for my Santa Fe BBQ Chicken Pizza. I took my family’s love for pizza, and our love for Mexican and Southwestern food and combined them to make this delicious dinner for us.
This pizza is topped with plenty of cheese, veggies (peppers, onions, sweet corn, black beans, grape tomatoes), chicken, and BBQ sauce.
Santa Fe BBQ Chicken Pizza Recipe
- 2 1/4 white bread flour, plus extra for dusting
- 1 tsp of instant yeast
- 1 1/2 tsp. of salt
- 3/4- 1 cup of lukewarm water
- 1- 1 1/2 tbsp. of olive oil plus extra for kneading (I used the Extra Virgin Olive Oil from World Market)
Combine the flour, yeast, and salt in a mixing bowl. Make a small well in the top. Mix in 3/4 of a cup of the lukewarm water and the olive oil until it becomes a sticky dough. You can add a little more water if needed in order to mix the dough into a sticky ball.Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
Lightly flour your work surface ad knead the dough for about 10 minutes, Cuntil it is smooth and elastic.
Cover the dough with some lightly oiled plastic wrap or a damp dish towel and let it rise for 1 hour or until it is doubled in size.
Use a rolling pin to roll the dough out into the size and shape you want.
Place your pizza dough onto the pizza paddle. Cover your dough with BBQ sauce. Then add shredded Pepper Jack Cheese, then grape tomatoes, chopped bell peppers, chopped onions, sweet corn, black beans, and seasoned chicken. Add some Colby Jack Cheese to the top to cover everything. If you want a spicier kick to your pizza you can add some sliced Northwoods Jalapeno Jack cheese from World Market to your pizza like I did with the half my husband and I ate. The other half was left without it for the kids to enjoy.
Put your pizza in the oven on top of the pizza stone and bake for 15-20 minutes. You can use the pizza paddle to remove the pizza from the oven and place it right on the table.
Our Pizza & Margarita night was a big success, and it didn’t hurt that I had become inspired while doing some shopping at World Market. I found a great recipe book for 100 different variations of pizzas, all using the same recipe for the crust, a large pizza paddle which helped me transfer the pizza in and out of the oven, the Tres Agaves Margarita Mix, and even a pizza stone. I also picked up a couple of placemats and that awesome pitcher (above pic) for the margaritas! I love that it’s plastic and not glass. There’s no chance of me breaking it. :)
