Pineapple Chipotle BBQ Chicken Pizza
The combination of tangy BBQ sauce, juicy grilled chicken, and sweet pineapple chunks all melted together with gooey mozzarella cheese is simply divine. Add to that the delicious chewy crust which is slightly charred in all the right places and you have a slice of heaven on your plate. What makes this pizza even better is the way it's cooked to perfection in your smoker or on the grill. Every bite is a mouth-watering fusion of tropical paradise meets American classic comfort food - and it's utterly irresistible!
