Appetizer, Better Than Takeout, Entrée, Lightened Up, One Pot Dish

5 Minute Crispy BBQ Pizza


I’ve been craving pizza lately and when I say craving, I mean CRAVING. I didn’t feel like making a cauliflower crust, I couldn’t find my go-to naan at Whole Foods, and I didn’t want to make dough from scratch. Instead I found Top This! Whole Wheat 13″ Crust in the freezer section. It was thin, crispy, and had a nice char flavor since it’s grilled. I went a little light on sauce/toppings since I wasn’t sure how this crust would hold up, but next time I make it, I can definitely go closer to the edge and add some more BBQ. The honey sriracha BBQ sauce pairs well with chicken sausage to give you a Crispy BBQ Sausage Flatbread.

Ingredients (serves 2-4 *).


  • Onions
  • Peppers
  • Chicken sausage
  • Chopped spinach
  • Tomatoes, diced
  • Red pepper flakes
  • Grated parmesan

* If pairing with a salad, beers, other sides, use 2 slices for a serving. Feel free to have 3 (maybe 4!) — up to you. You can also chop this up in smaller, bite-size pieces and serve as an app!


  1. Preheat oven to crust’s package directions.
    • Top This! crust recommended being easy on the sauce/toppings due to its thin nature. They also recommended adding any cheese first, so I did just that.
    • I used BBQ sauce for flavor and to prevent the pizza from getting soggy vs lathering on a red sauce.
  2. Add your desired toppings along with “dollops” (hate that word) of BBQ sauce. Go as close to the edge as you want your crust to be.
  3. Cook according to package directions. If using chopped spinach, add 2-3 min before the end time to prevent burning.
  4. Top with red pepper flakes and/or freshly grated parmesan cheese.
  5. Slice up and enjoy!
