Barbecued Chicken Pizza with Homemade Spelt Crust

Yields: One pizza


For the Spelt Crust:

  • 1 1/3 cups spelt flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 6 tablespoons filtered water

For the Toppings:

  • 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese
  • 1 chicken breast
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • 3/4 cup BBQ sauce, divided (I recommend Kinder’s Mild BBQ)
  • 2 jalapeños, sliced
  • 1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 tomato, diced
  • 3 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped


  1. Prepare the Crust:
    • In a large bowl, combine spelt flour, baking powder, salt, olive oil, and water. Stir until the dough comes together. Cover with a towel and let it rest for 15 minutes.
    • Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).
    • Roll out the dough into a circle on a floured surface and transfer it to a prepared pizza pan or baking sheet. Pre-bake the crust for 10 minutes.
  2. Cook the Chicken:
    • In a large skillet, bring the vegetable broth to a boil. Add the chicken breast and poach it until fully cooked, about 15 minutes. Remove from broth, allow to cool slightly, and then shred with two forks.
    • Toss the shredded chicken in 1/4 cup of BBQ sauce, set aside.
  3. Assemble the Pizza:
    • Spread the remaining 1/2 cup of BBQ sauce over the pre-baked crust. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese.
    • Evenly distribute the BBQ chicken, sliced jalapeños, and red onions on top.
    • Return to the oven and bake for an additional 10-15 minutes, or until the cheese is bubbly and the edges of the crust are golden brown.
  4. Final Touches:
    • Once out of the oven, top the pizza with fresh diced tomatoes and a sprinkle of fresh cilantro.

Serve and Enjoy!

  • Slice up your Barbecued Chicken Pizza with Spelt Crust and enjoy a perfect blend of smoky BBQ flavors with a hearty, healthful twist.
