Barbecue Chicken Pizza

Oh how we love all things barbecue at our house!!! Especially pizza! I thought I'd share with you a simple recipe that we use at our house for the nights when you just need a quick, yet yummy, meal. The hubs is a HUGE fan of Pier 49's BBQ chicken pizza. But guess what...he likes mine better. I guess unless he's just saying that to be nice. But he's usually pretty straight forward.So I make this often for him. And the best part of this is, the ingredients are things I usually have in my fridge. Don't you love those?

1 recipe for pizza dough (I use this one, and usually make a bunch to put in individual containers in the freezer, and then just pull it out to thaw in the morning)
olive oil
garlic salt
1-2 chicken breasts, grilled and finely chopped or shredded
KC Masterpiece barbecue sauce (I usually go for the hickory brown sugar or the original)
1 1/2-2 cups shredded mozerella cheese
2 TBL chopped fresh cilantro
1/4 cup chopped red onion (optional)
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Preheat your pizza stone, if using one.
Roll out the crust dough and place on preheated stone or on a baking dish. Poke dough all over with a fork, brush on olive oil and sprinkle with garlic salt.
Bake in preheated oven for 10-12 minutes or until very lightly golden.
Spread on about 1 1/2 cups of barbecue sauce. Toss the chicken with about 1/2 cup more barbecue sauce and spread over top. Sprinkle cilantro and onion (if using), and top with cheese.
Bake 10-12 more minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbly and the crust is perfectly golden.
