                                                             BBQ CHICKEN PIZZA

                        12   inch pizza crust, ready made,  purchased , [or recipe following]

                        BBQ Sauce, original, unless you have a specific one you like,

                       1 cup of cooked chicken, shredded {use two forks to pull apart]

                       1/2 of a red onion sliced really thin

                       3 Tablespoons finally chopped cilantro leaves

                       1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

                       3/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese


                        Preheat oven to 400*

                        Put the chicken in a small bowl, toss with BBQ sauce, amounts vary,
                        Enough to cover the chicken[ not drenched]. Set aside.

                        On a floured surface, roll out dough and place on lightly sprayed

                        baking sheet/pizza  pan.

                        Spoon about 2 Tablespoons BBQ sauce on dough [1/4 inch from edge.]

                        Sprinkle cheeses,and onions over sauce,Spread chicken over top.

                        Bake for 20 minutes, or until cheese is bubbly.

                       Sprinkle with the cilantro and serve.

                       Store bought pizza shells, ready made dough , or your own recipe

                       can be used. The more you roll out the pizza dough, the thinner  the crust.

                       I have made this recipe and rolled out my dough to 14 1/2 inches

                       for a crispy crust. I really liked it. Hope you will give it a try.

                                                          Jenny's  Pizza Dough Recipe

                       1 Cup warm water

                       1 cup of  WHITE WHEAT FLOUR

                       1 Cup of all purpose flour

                      1 Package of dry yeast

                      4 Tablespoons olive oil

                       1/4 teaspoon salt

                    If you have a mixer, this is easy. Pour 3/4 cup of the warm water in mixer bowl,

                    with  dough hook attached. Add flour to the water in mixing bowl

                    Mix till combined. Cover and let stand 20 minutes. Combine remaining water

                    [ 1/4 cup] and yeast in a small bowl. Let stand till bubbly.

                    Add yeast mixture, oil, and salt; mix 5 minutes or till dough forms a ball.

                    Place dough in a large bowl coated with cooking spray; cover surface of dough

                    with plastic wrap which is sprayed lightly with cooking spray.

                   Refrigerate 24 hours.

                    Make the dough a day ahead. Also this dough can be frozen.

                    When you refrigerate dough, let stand covered for  1 hour.

                    If frozen, defrost in refrigerator overnight, then proceed  with above directions.

                    If you find it difficult to handle the dough, put a little oil in your hands.

                    This is not a "quick" recipe, but if you have the time give it a try.
