Barbeque Chicken Pizza
BBQ Chicken Pieces
10 oz. boneless/skinless chicken breasts, cut into 3/4 inch cubes
1 Tbs. olive oil
2 Tbs. favorite BBQ sauce
For the Pizza:
1 recipe Thin Crust Dough
flour for handling
1/2 cup favorite BBQ sauce (a spicy−sweet sauce works best)
2 Tbs. shredded smoked Gouda cheese
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 small red onion, sliced into 1/8−inch pieces
2 Tbs. chopped fresh chopped fresh cilantro
To make BBQ Chicken:
In a large frying pan, cook the chicken in olive oil over medium−high heat until just cooked, 5-6 minutes. Do not overcook.
Set aside in the refrigerator until chilled through.
Once chilled, coat the chicken with BBQ sauce; set aside in the refrigerator.
To make pizza:
Place the pizza stone in the center of the oven and preheat to 500 degrees F. for one hour before cooking pizzas.
Use a large spoon to spread BBQ sauce evenly over the surface of the prepared dough within the rim.
Sprinkle smoked gouda cheese over the sauce.
Cover with 3/4 cup shredded mozzarella.
Distribute the chicken pieces evenly over the cheese.
Place the pieces of red onion over the surface.
Sprinkle an additional 1/4 cup mozzarella over the top of the pizza.
Transfer the pizza to the oven; bake until the crust is crisp and golden and the cheese at the center is bubbly, 8 to 10 minutes.
When the pizza is cooked, carefully remove it from the oven; sprinkle 1 Tbs. cilantro over the hot surface.
Slice and serve.
