BBQ Chicken Pizza

One of my favorite summer pizzas is good ole' BBQ Chicken. This garlic-seasoned crust and rich BBQ flavor, with just a bite of red onion, give this pizza a lot of flavor!

Pizza Crust:
          2 cups warm water 
          2 T olive oil
          5 tsp. yeast
          1 T sugar
     -Combine above ingredients, then allow to rest until mixture bubbles.
          2 tsp. salt
          4 1/2 - 5 cups all-purpose flour
     -Add remaining ingredients until dough is not too sticky.
     -Bake at 375 degrees for 4 minutes before adding pizza toppings.

Garlic Seasoning for Crust:
          2 T butter, melted
          2 tsp. garlic salt with parsley (personal favorite is Lawry's)
          3 T Parmesan cheese, grated
      -Combine and spread on outside edge of pizza crust (about 1")
BBQ Chicken & Assembly:
           2-3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
           BBQ sauce (one of my favorites is Sweet Baby Ray's)
      -Grill chicken and sauce in skillet until cooked through.
      -Spread a thin layer of spaghetti sauce and some additional bbq sauce on pizza crust.
      -Sprinkle a generous portion of Italian Cheeses (Parmesan, Mozzarella, Asiago), then add cooked chicken.
      -Top with sliced red onions and I usually add cilantro for a unique flavor (delish!)   

Bake assembled pizza at 375 degrees for 15-20 minutes, or until cheese is melted and bubbly!
