BBQ Chicken French Bread Pizza

French bread pizza is so much easier to make than regular pizza, and sometimes I prefer it to regular pizza (at least that we make) because the bread gets so crispy and crunchy and good.

Also, french bread is MUCH easier than whipping up a batch of pizza dough – no proofing the yeast, no waiting for the dough to rise. All you need is a loaf of french bread and a few toppings and it only takes about 15 minutes to put it all together and cook it up.

This time I decided to make a BBQ chicken french bread pizza instead of traditional marinara pizza – though I love that too. Because I had leftover shredded chicken and this was the perfect time to use it.

I love BBQ chicken pizza so much! The flavors come together like pure perfection, just a little chicken, of course bbq sauce, red onion, cheese and cilantro – oh I really love cilantro. All on top of crispy french bread, it really is a dinner you and your whole family will love.
