This Hawaiian Barbecue Chicken Pizza is great for getting your kids to eat fruit and vegetables in one bite! The flavor combo adds a little something different to your standard pizza menu. We love the flavor of barbecue so much, that any chance to enjoy it in a way that's outside of the box, works particularly well for us.
This recipe was one that I shared during my quick and easy pizza week. One of my MSSK Facebook friends requested quick weeknight dinner ideas and this pizza was one recipe that I shared. The prep time is minimal, and a Deli rotisserie chicken makes things even simpler. It's a terrific and speedy way to get a delicious meal on the table for your family on busy days.
