If you enjoy thin-crust pizza, chances are you will LOVE this BBQ Chicken Tortilla Pizza!  That’s right… the crust is a baked flour tortilla! Tender chunks of chicken, sweet and spicy  BBQ sauce, red onions, cilantro and cheeses combine to make this one amazing tasting dish!

Recently I had an idea to try using a flour tortilla to make a pizza.  I also knew I wanted to make a BBQ sauce based pizza with chicken, red onion, etc. There was no recipe for me to use, but I just made it up as I went along.

Guess what? This BBQ chicken tortilla pizza turned out ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC! I’m not kidding, we LOVED this pizza! Who knew?

How To Make A BBQ Chicken Tortilla Pizza

Begin by baking medium sized flour tortillas at 350 degrees on the middle rack of an oven until they are fairly crisp all over. This will take about 10 minutes. Make sure to flip each one over halfway through baking to ensure each tortilla is crisp all over, including in the middle.

Turn the oven to broil. Place the crisp tortillas on the middle rack, about 6 inches from the broiler for 1 minute to slightly brown them.

Tortillas are baked until crispy for pizza crust.

Assembling The BBQ Chicken Tortilla Pizza

Once the tortillas are crisp, spread each tortilla with BBQ sauce (about 1½ to 2 Tablespoons sauce per tortilla). Spread the sauce to within an inch of the edge of the tortilla.

This is the BBQ sauce I used to make the BBQ chicken tortilla pizza (photo below).

Baked tortillas are spread with BBQ sauce first for pizza topping.

Place thin slices of cooked chicken and red onion slices on top of the BBQ sauce. I used leftover cooked chicken breast for the pizza (thighs would also be fantastic).

Cooked chicken pieces and red onion slices top the tortilla pizza.

Sprinkle grated Mozzarella cheese and some sharp cheddar cheese on top of each BBQ chicken tortilla pizza, then garnish with a few cilantro leaves.

Bake The Pizza

Put the pizzas on a large baking sheet on the middle rack of a preheated 350 degree oven. Bake the BBQ chicken tortilla pizza for 5-6 minutes, until the cheese has melted.

Carefully slide the pizzas off of the baking sheet, and slice each one into 4 pieces with a pizza cutter. Now the BBQ chicken tortilla pizza is ready to EAT!

We gobbled them up like little piggies because they were sooooo good! The slices will hold their shape easily if the tortillas are nice and crisp before baking.  Go ahead… grab a slice!

The slightly sweet and spicy taste of the BBQ sauce lends itself well to chicken, red onions and cilantro.  My husband and I were both completely thrilled with the taste of this crazy tortilla pizza!

I really hope you will consider trying this simple recipe… for me it was ridiculously easy and super quick to make, due in part to leftover cooked chicken and extra flour tortillas!  I can hardly wait to make these again for a quick dinner! Have a GREAT day!
