It’s been a long day and you’re just desperate for some comfort food to carry you through. This barbecue chicken potato base pizza is sure to cure every craving, improve your mood, and provide you with the most delicious dinner imaginable.

Layers of crispy potato, juicy barbecue chicken, and gooey cheese make it the ultimate combination to have on the end of your fork. The sweet onion and pepper are the perfect added crunch that this dish needs.
