Sloppy Bbq Chicken Pizza

This is a recipe I came across, oh...3 weeks ago or longer. It has been on my menu plan for at least 2 weeks and I finally got to make it for dinner tonight with my brother in laws. We are headed there for dinner and I needed something that I could cook here and reheat there, so this won!

Sloppy Bbq Chicken Pizza- adapted from Vanderbilt Wife
3/4 cup cornmeal
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup flour
1/4 cup oil
1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup sugar
1 cup milk
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt

Mix together, place in oven safe skillet(or 9x13 would work), cook at 400 degrees for 20-25 mins until golden brown

2 cups cooked, cubed chicken
3 tbsp brown sugar
1 8 oz can tomato sauce
2 tsp hot sauce
1 tbsp chili powder
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1.5 tsp cumin
2 tsp minced garlic(or 2 cloves)
1-2 peppers(i used 1 red,1 green) chopped
1 onion, chopped
2 cups shredded cheese

Drizzle pan with olive oil. Saute onion, peppers, and garlic until tender. Add in chicken, stir. Add in sauces, spices, and sugar. Mix until combined. Cook for 2-3 mins until sugar dissolves.

Once cornbread is done, take out and top with chicken mixture. Cover with cheese and place back in oven for 5 mins until cheese is melted.

**The topping itself is a bit spicy, but the spice was cut down when eaten with the cornbread. If you don't like spicy I'd cut down on the spices!


  1. this sounds yummy. I make another pizza-ish meal that uses cornbread and love it. I've bookmarked this one to try

  2. Yay! Thanks for making it whole-foods friendly.
