BBQ Chicken Pizza
Purchase one roll of refrigerated pizza dough and press to edges of the pan. Make sure to smooth out any holes. To ensure a crispier crust, stick it in the oven while it preheats so the dough bakes up first.
For a pizza this size, I use 2 chicken breasts or 4 chicken thighs, but for a 12in round, just use 1 chicken breast or 2 thighs. Cook the chicken separately first until juicy-- I use my panini maker-- then cut into small pieces and coat with BBQ sauce.
Once the crust is slightly puffy, remove from oven and add a thin layer of BBQ sauce of your choice-- Famous Dave's is yummy-- then top with chicken, sprinkle with about 2 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro. Cover with a combination of shredded mozzarella and cheddar cheeses and bake for 15 min. at 400 degrees or until cheese is melted.
Let cool for 5 min. then eat up!
If you want to add a little extra zip, slice and sweat a few red onions/
