This pizza is great in a cast iron skillet with the refrigerated pizza dough. Just unroll the dough, mark the circle with the cast iron pan (see video in post) and trim off the excess doughcorners. You can also make this with your favorite pizza dough but adjust baking times with different doughs.


  • 13.8 oz. can refrigerated pizza crust
  • Olive Oil or softened Butter, for brushing skillet
  • 2 Tablespoons Butter melted (olive oil works fine too)
  • 2 cloves Garlic finely chopped
  • 1/2 pound chicken breast
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil for grilling the chicken
  • Salt to taste
  • black pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup bbq sauce
  • 1/2 cup sliced red onions
  • 4 oz. grated Cheese (mozzarella, cheddar or smoked gouda) - about 3/4 cup

Pizza Toppings (choose your favorites)

  • Green Onions sliced
  • extra bbq sauce
  • extra cheese
  • minced parsley or cilantro
  • fresh tomatoes


  1. Heat oven to 400°F. Brush olive oil (or butter) inside a 10” cast iron skillet or other oven safe skillet.
  2. Unroll pizza crust dough. Turn the skillet upside down and into press dough to mark the size of the pan. Trim the excess dough. Place the dough inside the skillet allowing the dough to go up the edges slightly.
  3. Combine the melted butter and garlic. Brush the top of the dough with the garlic butter.
  4. Bake the pizza crust for 15 minutes.
  5. While pizza dough cooks, grill the chicken. Season at the chicken with salt and pepper. Heat small skillet on medium high heat. Add oil and then add chicken and cook on both sides for about 5 minutes, or until cooked through. Remove from heat and slice into 1/2” slices.
  6. Remove from pizza dough from the oven and top with chicken, red onions and cheese. Bake for another 10-15 minutes or until crust is golden.
  7. Add desired pizza toppings and serve warm.
