I’ve teamed up with Barefoot Wine to bring you delicious, budget friendly recipes that are easy to make. Today I’m sharing this BBQ Chicken Naan Pizza with Malbec BBQ Sauce. I made the sweet and spicy BBQ sauce with Malbec from Barefoot Wine. This recipe will easily feed a family of four. Pair it with a light salad and a glass of Malbec for the adults at the table.

Ken and I actually devoured BOTH of these pizzas by ourselves. They were gone within 20 minutes of me setting them in front of us at the coffee table. The soft, pillowy naan crust topped with creamy ranch dressing, tender shredded chicken, sweet and spicy BBQ sauce and gooey cheese was simply irresistible.

You’ll start of making the Malbec BBQ Sauce. I made the sauce the day before I made the pizzas. I wanted to give the flavors of the sauce time to mingle together. It was totally worth it. The sauce tasted even better the next day. If you don’t have time to make the sauce the day before, it’s quite alright to make it the same day you make the pizza.

Ingredients
For the Malbec BBQ Sauce
  • 1 C Barefoot Malbec
  • 1 C Ketchup
  • 1 C light brown sugar
  • ½ C cider vinegar
  • ½ C finely chopped onion
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp chipotle hot sauce
  • ½ tsp ground black pepper
  • ½ tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • ½ tsp liquid smoke (optional - I did not use this but if you want to add smokey flavor to your sauce, add some liquid smoke).
For the Naan Pizzas
  • 2 pieces of Naan (9oz package)
  • 1½ C cooked shredded chicken (I used a rotisserie chicken from my grocery store)
  • 3 tbsp Malbec BBQ sauce, plus more for drizzling
  • 2 tbsp ranch dressing, divided
  • 1 C shredded Mexican or cheddar cheese, divided
  • 2 tbsp sliced green onion
Instructions
For the sauce
  1. Place all of the sauce ingredients in a large sauce pan and mix well. Bring to a boil. Stir and reduce heat to a simmer and simmer for 20 minutes or until slightly thickened.
  2. After simmering, puree with an immersion blender. I did this to blend the onions into the sauce.
For the pizzas
  1. Mix the shredded chicken with 3 tbsp of Malbec BBQ sauce.
  2. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Place the naan on the baking sheet. Spread the ranch dressing over each piece of naan. Divide the shredded chicken and then sprinkle over each piece of naan (3/4 C each). Top each of the pizzas with the shredded cheese (1/2 C each).
  3. Bake at 350 for 8 minutes. After baking, turn on the broiler and broil until the cheese is slightly browned.
  4. Remove the pizzas from the oven and drizzle with the Malbec BBQ sauce. Sprinkle the pizzas with the sliced green onion. Cut each pizza into four wedges.

    Holy pizza!! That looks INSANE! That second picture has my mouth watering. I love this creative use of wine. Malbec is one of my favorite reds – I’d drink both the wine and the BBQ straight from the bottle! Looks divine!

    A barbecue sauce made from wine? I don’t think you can go wrong with that. This pizza looks delicious and your photos are beautiful Julie!

    Inspiration pizza station – Yesterday we made these with regular dough and BBQ sauce as the base (since Ranch is nowhere to be found in Holland). Success! We ate them in silence and they were gone in 5 minutes flat.

    Thanks :)

    This was truly amazing. We loved it. I did have a question about the sauce though. Can you freeze it? There is a lot left over. I so don’t want to get rid of it. Thank you so much for this awesome recipe. I wouldn’t change a thing about it.

      Hi Darlene! Thank you so much for stopping by to let me know you enjoyed the recipe. I truly appreciate it.

      I did not try freezing the sauce as we just used it on other things and even made these pizzas again. But I did find some info on freezing BBQ sauce and you can freeze it for up to 3 months. Here is the info, from The Kitchn, in case you want to check it out. Hope this helps!
