Growing up in Africa, we ate pizza, sure. But pizza with pineapple? What kind of weird combination is that, I mistakenly presumed? But it was no weird combination, as many of you will attest >> Pineapple is actually quite tasty on pizza! Combine the tangy pineapple with some sweet and savory barbecue sauce, and you’ve actually got a winning combination.

This Hawaiian BBQ Chicken Pizza was made popular by California Pizza Kitchen, as one of their most ordered pizzas. I personally used to always order the Tostada pizza…anyone else?! Anyways, I digress with daydreams of my high school weekends going to California Pizza Kitchen at the mall with my sisters.

I don’t think this Hawaiian BBQ Chicken Pizza is actually still on their menu, but so many copycat recipe versions came out influenced by the restaurant that’s it’s become a thing. It’s so easy to throw together. You can use any BBQ sauce of your choice (or totally make your own), some cooked chicken (with that BBQ sauce), chunks of pineapple, some red onions to give it a little kick and loads of cheese.

I means load it up for realz! You can easily split this pizza between four people, or you may just find yourself eating half the pizza…oopsy!!

  • 1 pound pizza dough
  • All-purpose flour for dusting
  • ½ cup barbecue sauce
  • 1 cup chopped chicken breast
  • ¾ cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • ½ cup shredded smoked Gouda cheese
  • ¼ red onion thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro chopped


  • Set the pizza dough out for 30 minutes to come to room temperature.
  • Preheat the oven to 425°F and dust two baking sheets with flour.
  • Dust a work surface with flour. Divide the pizza dough into two smaller dough balls. Stretch or roll each dough ball into a 9-inch circle and transfer to the prepared baking sheets. Spread each dough circle with ¼ cup barbecue sauce, leaving a ½-inch rim around the edge. Top each with the chopped chicken, then the mozzarella cheese, and Gouda cheese. Scatter the sliced red onion across the top of each.
  • Bake the pizzas until they are browned and crispy around the edges and the cheese is bubbling in the center, about 15-20 minutes.
  • Remove the pizzas from the oven and sprinkle each chopped cilantro.
  • Slice each pizza into 6 pieces and serve.


Tip: Take the time to flour your board before rolling out your pizza dough to avoid breaks in the dough.
