by | Mealtime, UnBox Your Kitchen

Pizza is a family favorite. Instead of ordering out, why not make it yourself. Photographed is a BBQ Chicken Pizza. It’s topped with BBQ sauce, cooked chicken, saute’d onions, green pepper, jalapeno, and parmesan cheese. Toppings could consist of sliced ham, pepperoni, black olives, onions, green peppers, sausage, pineapple, mushrooms, and cheese. Be creative and add what sounds good to you. Enjoy!
