BBQ Chicken Pizza

Tonight I made three different kinds of pizza for a Pizza Buffet night with some friends. Well, four kinds really, because I changed my mind at the last minute and added a bacon pizza to the menu. I had intended to make a BBQ chicken pizza, a spinach alfredo pizza and two pepperoni pizzas (for the unadventurous among us). But to mix it up a little more, I turned one of the pepperonis into a bacon which Mr. Lego likes better anyway.

The BBQ chicken pizza was fabulous! Unfortunately, I didn't measure the ingredients, except for the Gouda cheese. I used the whole 8 ounces! Yum! So the amounts I have posted here are approximations, not exacts.

For the sauce, let me recommend my favorite BBQ sauce in the whole world, Sweet Baby Ray's.

I used the original recipe flavor, but SBR has a whole bunch of unique flavors like Raspberry Chipotle, Sweet Vidalia Onion, and Sweet n Spicy. Pick one that suits your tastes.

Here's what I did:

I took about 1 cup of shredded cooked chicken and mixed it with 1/2 cup of SBR's. I stretched my pizza dough out onto a baking sheet, then spread about 2 TBSP of sauce on it.

I spread the chicken out over the sauce.

Then I topped it with thin slices of red onion. I followed this with sliced Gouda cheese, an entire 8oz round.

I baked this at 400 degrees for 15 minutes until the crust was cooked through. I didn't have a chance to take a picture of the finished pizza because we were all so hungry and dug right in. But I did get a picture of one slice, all that's left of it. It was so, so, so good!
