Pizza Dough (skip down if using a pre-done shell)
8 oz. warm water (100 degrees)
1 package yeast

1 tsp kosher salt

1 Tbs. olive oil

1 tsp sugar or honey

3 cups flour

Mix yeast and water ans sugar together until dissolved. Let the mixture sit for about 10 minutes until a froth forms

Put the rest of the ingredients in a food processor bowl. Process while pouring in the water.The mixture should form a sticky ball that pull away from the sides- this should take about 30 seconds. Remove the dough to an oiled bowl and let rest in a warm place for 30-45 minutes.

Remove and cut the dough into to equal pieces. Work the dough in your hands to form a ball. Set balls again to rest for 20 minutes.

Preheat oven to 500 degrees. If your oven goes higher, do it! The pizza below was cooked at 550 degrees.

On a floured surface roll the balls into approximately 12" discs, or ovals, or amoebas. Who cares? It's your pizza..

Now let's top the bbq pizza:

Barbecue Pizza toppings:
1.5 cups cooked bbq chicken or any leftover cooked chicken, mixed with approximately 1/2 cup of your favorite bbq sauce
Sliced red onions (very thin)

2 cups mozzarella or jack cheese

BBQ sauce ( approx 2/3 cup)

Garlic Sauce (optional)

(For garlic sauce, mix 3 cloves crushed garlic with about 1 cup mayonnaise. Thin out with about 2-3Tb. water)


Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
BBQ Pizza : an addictive bbq pizza recipe that can use leftover chicken and be done in as little as 15 minutes!
BBQ pizza, in most cases chicken is easy and addictive. This bbq pizza recipe uses the oven, but you can easily use a bbq grill. Also, this barbecue pizza uses a fresh dough as seen in the pictures below, but if you don't have time or you are just that lazy, use a pre-packaged pizza shell like Boboli, or foccacia.

If you use a pre-packaged shell, this recipe can be done in as little as 15 minutes. No matter which dough you choose, you will still have that kitchen pizza smell that'll get the kids running.

Plus, this bbq pizza uses a secret ingredient- a creamy garlic sauce that blends with the bbq sauce- really, really, good.

**If you do not have one, I highly recommend a pizza stone- they really improve the finished product.
