BBQ 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

Cornmeal, semolina, or 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 to 6 minutes. Do not overcook. Set aside in the refrigerator until chilled through. Once chilled, coat the chicken with 2 Tbs. BBQ sauce; set aside in the refrigerator.

To make the 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 1/4 cup BBQ sauce evenly over the surface of the prepared dough within the rim. Sprinkle 1 Tbs. smoked Gouda cheese over the sauce. Cover with 3/4 cup shredded mozzarella. Distribute half the chicken pieces evenly over the cheese (approximately 18 pieces). Place approximately 18 to 20 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.
