Andouille and BBQ Chicken Pizza

Ohhhh man. This pizza. It. Is. Heavenly. If you are a fan of spicy BBQ, you are going to fall head over heels in love with this Andouille and BBQ Chicken Pizza. This pizza is loaded with BBQ sauce, pepper jack cheese, mozzarella cheese, shredded chicken, andouille sausage and sliced jalapeños. It’s sweet, spicy and down right scrumptious.

Confession time: I have not always been a fan of BBQ Chicken Pizza. In fact, when it came to pizza, BBQ Chicken Pizza was always last on my list. I think it was because I always thought that pizza sauce had to be marinara. I didn’t get the whole BBQ sauce on pizza thing. I think it was that BBQ sauce was just too sweet for me. And I don’t really like my pizza sweet. I like it savory…and spicy.

Ryan, on the other hand, is a huge BBQ Chicken Pizza fan. It might be one of his favorites. In attempt to please both our palates I created this Andouille and BBQ Chicken Pizza. It’s got that sweet, smoky BBQ flavor but it also gets a little kick from some jalapeños and andouille sausage.  It’s the best of both worlds really.

Sweet n' spicy fans will love this pizza! Andouille and BBQ Chicken Pizza is loaded with shredded chicken, andouille sausage, jalapeños and BBQ Sauce.

When it comes to the sauce, I wanted to choose one that was also sweet n’ spicy. I went with Stubb’s Sweet Heat. It is by far my favorite BBQ Sauce. Ever since I tried the sauce when I was in Austin a few years back, I always have a bottle in my fridge. It made the perfect base for this Andouille and BBQ Chicken Pizza. With that said, you can use whatever BBQ sauce you like best. I’d personally go with a spicy one to keep with the sweet n’ spicy thing going on here :)

    My husband doesn’t like marinara sauce on pizza, so this would be perfect for us! Love the jalapenos too!

  • I do BBQ chicken pizza frequently but have never thought to add sausage. Sounds like a very good idea!
