BBQ Chicken Pizza

Today’s recipe is a bit more complex, or as simple as you want it to be, really.

I took the liberty of linking a couple of other recipes within this one, one for a cauliflower pizza crust, and the other for Hawaiian BBQ sauce.

Hawaiian BBQ, also known sometimes as Huli Huli sauce, is a sweet and spicy teriyaki style glaze.

The recipe I linked has a quick history of the sauce as well, which I thought was fun. This is a great sauce to just have around in the fridge, just waiting to help you with a quick creation.

What’s great about this recipe is it has so many ways to personalize it, and to make it as simple or complex as you desire!

However you fix this pizza, enjoy it!
