recipe {bbq chicken pizza}

i love homemade pizza!  it's one of our favorite meals.  saturday, while it was snowing outside, we made bbq chicken pizza and it was super yummy.  the crust recipe i use is quick and easy.  it only has to rise for 10 minutes!

1 cup warm water
1 tablespoon white sugar
1 small packet {2 1/4 teaspoon} rapid rise active dry yeast
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
2 -1/2 cup all-purose flour

combine water, sugar, and yeast togeter in a bowl

whisk until dissolved

add olive oil and salt

add flour {picture above is what it should look like with half of the flour}

dough should look like this with all the flour added

use hands to form into a ball like above and let REST for 10 minutes

while dough is resting, spray pizza stone with non-stick spray and sprinkle with corn meal.  after dough has rested 10 minutes, place ball of dough on stone and sprinkle with flour.  use your hands and start pressing dough thin, push towards edges of stone.  once you get it pressed close to the edges use a roller to roll the dough a little off the stone.  then fold the dough over to create a crust and press with your fingers. 

once you have your crust rolled out brush with olive oil and then sprinkle with garlic salt and italian seasonings. then bake at 425 degrees until lightly golden. then you are ready to add your toppings!

bbq sauce
rotisserie chicken
red onion
goat cheese
italian cheese
red pepper flakes

just can used canned chicken if you would like instead of the rotisserie chicken.  brush crust with bbq sauce then top with chicken, onion, jalapeno, garlic, goat cheese, italian cheese, and red pepper flakes.  place pizza back in oven and bake for another 10-15 minutes until cheese has melted.  finally, top with fresh chopped cilantro and a drizzle of bbq sauce. 

remember, you can use this idea and make your own personalized pizza...same crust different toppings.
