Friday Night Pizza - BBQ Style



Friday night was pizza night and I have been wanting to try a BBQ chicken pizza for awhile now.  I found a couple different recipes and combined them to come up with this tasty version.

I started by making my own dough (I am so close to getting it to the point where I will share it).  Next up was taking about 8 oz. of boneless chicken breasts, coating it in about a quarter cup of your favorite BBQ sauce (I used Famous Dave's original) and baking for 25 minutes at 350.  When cooked and cooled, dice up into small pieces.



Heat a pizza stone in the oven on the middle rack for at least 30 minutes at 450....don't ask why :-), I've read to do this and it just seems to work.  Next place the dough (that has been stretched in a circle - or whatever shape mine happens to be) on a pizza peel that has a sprinkling of corn meal (this makes it easy to slide off onto the stone).  Once the dough is on the peel, brush about 2 T of BBQ sauce, drizzle a little olive oil and season with some S&P.  Next I scatter about a 1/2 cup of frozen corn that was thawed and dried off a bit.  On top of this layer, add fresh mozzarella cheese that has been sliced thin, top with the diced chicken and red onions that have also been sliced very thin.  I drizzled a little more BBQ sauce.  Slide onto stone and  bake for about 15-17 until crust is browned and the top is bubbly and cooked.

Top off with some cilantro and serve... be careful not to burn your mouth :-)

We enjoyed our pizza with our daughter, her husband and some tasty beverages



I really enjoyed this pizza!  I would definitely make again!
