Korean BBQ Chicken Pizza

Slightly sweet, spicy, and savory, this Korean BBQ Chicken Pizza is a delicious twist on a traditional barbecue pizza.

Have you tried Korean BBQ sauce before? I hadn’t even heard of it until I was shopping at Trader Joe’s one day and noticed a bottle. Intrigued by the difference between it and traditional barbecue sauce, I bought a bottle and used it to marinate tofu for a stir-fry. While it is similar to traditional barbecue sauce in that it is slightly sweet with a little kick of heat, it is more savory-tasting and has a back-of-your-throat kind of heat from the ginger and chili paste. It reminds me of a spicier hoisin sauce.

One of my favorite pizzas is a barbecue chicken pizza with broccoli, carrots, and red onion (one of the few times I enjoy onions is on pizza). So after trying the Korean barbecue sauce, I knew I had to try it on pizza. And the verdict: so good! Again, it gives a slightly more umami flavor than traditional barbecue sauces and was delicious with the chicken.

If you don’t feel like going out and buying a bottle, you can easily make your own Korean barbecue sauce at home. I like this recipe from Simply Scratch as she has pictures to guide you through each step. 

So here’s a toast to turning up the heat on pizza!

Korean BBQ Chicken Pizza

Print Recipe
Serves: 4 Cooking Time: 25 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 whole wheat pizza dough
  • ¼ cup cornmeal or flour for rolling out dough
  • ½ lb cooked chicken breast, diced*
  • 1/2 cup Korean BBQ sauce
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup broccoli florets, coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 small red onion, sliced into thin strips

Instructions

1

Preheat oven to 425F

2

While oven is preheating, steam broccoli for 2 minutes, or until softened.

3

Place pizza dough on a lightly floured surface (I prefer using cornmeal over flour but either works). Roll pizza out thin and place on baking sheet or pizza stone.

4

Cover dough with Korean BBQ sauce, followed by cheese and vegetables.

5

Place pizza in oven and bake 20-25 minutes, or until crust is to your desired crispness.

6

Remove from oven, slice into 8 equal pieces and enjoy!

Notes

*For the chicken, I baked it earlier in the week at 350F for 30 minutes. I seasoned it simply with olive oil, salt, and pepper.
