This BBQ Chicken Pizza is a pretty classic flavor combo that I can in NO way take credit for! I guess you could call this my take on the "classic." It's perfectly smoky yet sweet, a little spicy, cheesy and melty, a fresh hit from the cilantro.... YES. Just yes.

BBQ Chicken was the perfect flavor pairing for my new Sweet Potato Pizza Crust!

I used some organic barbecue sauce that I picked up at the grocery store, but you could use homemade or whatever your favorite brand is! The plan was to use a combo of mozzarella and smoked gouda cheeses, but I couldn't find any smoked gouda, so I went with smoked CHEDDAR and it was PERFECT.
