Blueberry barbecue sauce is a great sweet and tangy addition to chicken pizza. Not to mention, the colors are easy on the eyes.
Ingredients
Pizza
  • 1 pizza crust (homemade or store bought) (gluten free version here)
  • 1 batch of Blueberry BBQ Sauce (recipe to follow)
  • 2 cups of cooked chicken pieces
  • 2 cups of mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 1 handful of arugula leaves
  • ½ cup fresh blueberries, add more if you want
Sauce
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1¼ cups ketchup
  • ¼ cup rice vinegar
  • ¼ cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 2 teaspoons molasses
  • ½ teaspoon jalapeno-garlic oil (optional)
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • 2 tablespoons minced red onion
Instructions
Pizza
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Pre-bake pizza crust for 6-8 minutes.
  3. Remove from oven and add BBQ sauce, cheese, chicken pieces, blueberries and arugula. Return to oven and bake until cheese is melted--about 10 more minutes.
  4. Slice and Serve. Store leftovers in refrigerator.
Sauce
  1. Combine all ingredients in a medium sauce pan. Turn heat to medium and bring to a boil. Using a potato masher or back of a spoon, mash blueberries into sauce. You should still see pieces of blueberry just not whole berries.
  2. Turn heat down to low and let simmer for 30 minutes to thicken. Depending on stovetops, it may take more or less time to achieve the desired thickness. It will also thicken as it sits in the refrigerator if you do not use it right away.
  3. Store leftover sauce in refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
