My BBQ Chicken Bubble Up Pizza Cups are bound to be a hit with your family! They are a fun appetizer, lunch, or dinner. I love flexible recipes like that. Served up warm with a side of ranch, these bubble-up pizza cups disappear quickly!

BBQ Chicken Bubble Up Pizza Cups

Your favorite buttery soft biscuits combined with chicken covered in BBQ sauce and topped with lots of melted cheese. Once they are popped out of the muffin tin, you can eat them with a fork or eat them with your hands like cheesy pull-apart bread. Fun to make and fun to eat!

Ingredients for BBQ Chicken Bubble Up Pizza:

Pillsbury Grands Biscuits


Shredded chicken

BBQ sauce

Shredded mozzarella

Diced purple onion

Toppings of choice

Begin by cutting each biscuit round into 8 smaller pieces (cutting the biscuits in half twice). Place the cut-up biscuits pieces into a mixing bowl with the shredded chicken and BBQ sauce. Gently stir until the BBQ sauce is mixed evenly. Prepare a couple of standard-size muffin tins with non-stick spray. Add the BBQ chicken pizza mixture into the cups so that they are completely full.

You can also use mini or jumbo size muffin tins, simply adjust the baking time and the amount of chicken mixture added to each cup. Then, top each one with a generous amount of mozzarella cheese. If you like purple onion on your BBQ chicken pizza, sprinkle a little chopped onion over the cheese.

BBQ Chicken Bubble Up Pizza Cups

The bubble up pizza cups will bake for about 17-20 minutes. Sprinkle on on some chives or diced green onions (optional). Let the bubble-up pizza bites cool for a couple of minutes and then remove them from the muffin tin. Thanks to the non-stick spray, they will come out easily!

Serve the BBQ Chicken Bubble Up Pizza Cups with ranch and maybe even some additional BBQ sauce. These are a great game day appetizer, lunch, or even a fun dinner! Consider mixing up the ingredients to make some of your other favorite pizzas! Marinara sauce with pepperoni or alfredo sauce with chicken or sausage. YUM! Be sure to bake our
