During football season our meals revolve around the television set. A mid afternoon game calls for a sandwich and chips for lunch. An evening game calls for a big bowl of popcorn.
But what about when football and dinner time collide? (I’m looking at you 4:25 PM games). Ordering out for pizza is the obvious choice. However, the cost and processed ingredients make me think twice.
Making your own BBQ Chicken Pizza Recipe is easier than you might think. Here is my favorite game day version.
