BBQ chicken pizza
In Rexburg there's this awesome pizza place called Craigo's. In my humble opinion, they have the best pizza....ever! One of their best pizzas is their BBQ chicken pizza. When we left Rexburg and came to Texas some of our good friends Kelsey and Grant made us their version of BBQ chicken pizza and it quickly came into a monthly rotation at our house. It is so yummy!
First make your pizza dough. You can use your own recipe, or follow mine:
1 1/2 - 2 cups flour (start with one cup and add a little at a time)
1 tablespoon Yeast
1/4 teaspoon Salt
1 tablespoon Sugar
1 cup lukewarm water
In a mixing bowl sprinkle yeast and sugar into warm water. Allow it to sit for 10 minutes. Add salt. Add flour. Start with 1 cup and add a little at a time until you have a soft but not sticky dough. You may or may not use all the flour. Allow dough to rise for 15 minutes.
Meanwhile grill your chicken. Baste with BBQ sauce in the final stages of grilling. Allow chicken to sit for 10 minutes before slicing it. Place sliced chicken in a bowl with some extra BBQ sauce to coat it.
Prepare pizza by rolling your dough out on a floured surface, cover generously with your favorite BBQ sauce ( I used Sweet Baby Rays), Mozzerella cheese, and sliced red onions. Top with BBQ chicken. Bake at 375 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until cheese is melted and crust is golden brown. Sprinkle with fresh cilantro.
I am using my pesto tonight! I am pretty dang excited :)
