“I really love BBQ Chicken Pizza... and I really love crescent rolls. I decided one day to combine my love of both and see what I came up with... this recipe! I use Easy and Tasty Barbecue Chicken Sandwiches in the Crock Pot for the chicken, which works great here. Hope you like it.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (8 ounce) can refrigerated reduced-fat crescent rolls
  • 1 cup cooked chicken, shredded & mixed with BBQ sauce
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons red onions, finely chopped
  • 12 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • cream cheese (optional)
  • cooking spray


  1. Spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a small bowl, mix cilantro, onion, and mozzarella. Put aside.
  3. Seperate crescent roll dough, pushing 2 triangles together to make 4 rectangles total.
  4. If using cream cheese, spread a tiny bit in the center of each rectangle. (This will make it creamy and yummy and delish!).
  5. Place about 1.5 tbsp shredded chicken on center of each rectangle.
  6. Sprinkle cilantro, onion, and cheese mixture on top of each rectangle.
  7. Fold rectangle sides up, making little pizza pockets.
  8. Bake for 15 minutes.
  9. When done cooking, let stand for 5 minutes.
  10. Eat and enjoy - you may have to use a fork for these as they're very gooey and yummy!
