The Dish: BBQ Chicken Pizza
1 Ready Made Pizza Crust
1 boneless skinless chicken breast
1 medium red onion
1 each - red, yellow, green pepper - diced
1 1/2 cups tomato or pizza sauce
1 small bottle BBQ sauce
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup shredded provolone cheese
4 tbs. olive oil
1 garlic clove
1 bunch thyme
1 bunch rosemary
Combine olive oil, garlic, thyme and rosemary to make a marinade.
Combine cheeses in a bowl.
Butterfly the chicken breast coat with the olive oil mix and bake in a 400 degree oven for about 15 minutes.
Remove chicken from oven and cut into cubes. Drop pieces into a bowl with BBQ sauce and toss so the pieces are well coated.
Slice onion and dice peppers.
Place pizza crust on pizza grill or pizza pan (available at most supermarkets). Pour tomato sauce on to pizza crust and spread evenly, cover with cheeses, place chicken chunks on top, and finish with red onions and diced peppers. Brush the edge of the pizza with the olive oil/herb mixture.
Preheat the oven to 475 degrees and let the pizza cook for about 15 minutes or until the crust is golden brown.
Take it out of the oven. Remove the grill from underneath and slice.
