BBQ "Chicken" Pizza & Leffe Tripel

I have been a bit of a mini pizza kick lately and been trying to incorporate more of the fake meat products I find at the Migros. This recipe uses the fake chicken bits by the company Quorn. I have also been trying to use up our imported products like the BBQ sauce we bought in Manhattan. This recipe is simple and delicious and completely made in the toaster oven and stovetop.

Ingredients Assembled and Ready To Go


Quantities and Measurements for these items are all up to your tastes!

1. Pre Made Pizza Dough ~ or if you have the time you can make it from scratch.
2. Fake Chicken (or real chicken cooked thru on the stovetop)
3. Red Onions for Caramelizing
4. Mozzarella
5. BBQ Sauce of your choosing
6. Fresh Cilantro or Coriander, chopped. This is a key ingredient to the flavor!

(Ignore the tomatoes ~ I didn't end up using them, but you can if you wish)


1. Slice and caramelize red onions. This will take awhile so you want to get it started before anything else. Also, if your using real chicken, it would be a great time to sauté them. Bonus: you could marinate real chicken and bbq them on a grill for a smokey flavor. You could also use leftover BBQ chicken for this easy pizza.

2. Cut dough into rounds and par-bake; aka half bake.

3. Mix "chicken" bits with BBQ sauce

4. Spread BBQ Sauce like you would a pizza sauce on rounds

5. Top with caramelized onions

6. Top with "chicken" mixture

7. Top with mozzarella slices

8. Tope with cilantro and dab more BBQ sauce on top

9. Bake till it looks like melty goodness. Enjoy with a nice cold beer! My choice was Belgium Leffe Tripel!

BBQ and Pizza enjoyed with Leffe Tripel
Tripel Style, 8.1%
Brewed by Abbey De Leffe in Belgium

We have previously tried another style from Leffe, and really enjoyed this one. Leffe is readily available in lots of stores all over the US, CoOp's in CH, and E'LECLERC stores on the French side of the border.

Those pizzas look so delicious. I have to admit, I bought that fake chicken on accident. It was 50% off because Migros had to sell it by that particular day and I thought nothing of it. I looked at the picture and the patties themselves and they looked like chicken - I didn't even bother reading the description! oops! No big deal though because I think it's pretty tasty.

What's the texture of the fake chicken like? I always think it is funny when vegetarians eat meat-like products that mimic the real thing in appearance, taste, and texture...

Hi, I came across your blog via Jessica's Swisstory. Those pizzas do look delicious. We make our own pizza at least once a week and you gave me some new ideas for toppings! I think I'm going to buy some figs today to try your fig and goats cheese recipe!
