The original recipe called for 2 tablespoons of smoked Gouda, but I don't like that taste enough to buy a whole hunk of cheese for 2 tablespoons, so I used some leftover crumbled blue cheese I had on hand and I am glad I did! Blue cheese and BBQ sauce go great together, especially if you use Sweet Baby Ray's like I do :) Additionally, I may try to caramelize the red onions next time I make this. I think the sweeter flavor would go better with the rest of the flavors, rather than the slight crunch they had here.
BBQ Chicken Pizza
slightly adapted from America's Most Wanted Recipes: Delicious Recipes from Your Family's Favorite Restaurants
Makes 1 10" pizza
1 chicken breast or 1/2 pound chicken tenders
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 cup BBQ sauce, divided
pizza dough, homemade or store-bought
2 tablespoons crumbled blue cheese
1 cup shredded mozzarella
1/2 cup red onion, sliced (caramelized, if desired)
2 tablespoons fresh cilantro
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Prepare pizza stone or baking sheet.
Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add chicken and cook thoroughly. Remove from heat and cool slightly, coat with 1/4 cup BBQ sauce. Cut into bite-sized pieces.
Form dough into 10" crust. Spread remaining 1/4 cup BBQ sauce evenly onto crust, leaving small border around edges. Sprinkle blue cheese and 1/2 cup mozzarella over crust. Add chicken, red onion, remaining mozzarella, and cilantro.
Bake for 10 minutes or until crust is slightly browned. Cool slightly before slicing.
Don't mind the free-form crust. I had a little issue transferring from the counter to the pizza stone.
