Barbecue Chicken Pizza

I love getting in the kitchen with my kids and creating some pizza masterpieces. They love to make their own personal sized pizzas with their favorite toppings. I purchased a pizza stone and what a difference it makes in the crust. Just purchase some pizza dough from your local grocery store or stop by a pizza place and ask them if you can purchase some pizza dough. Get into your kitchen and have some fun making this pizza!
You will need:

Pizza dough
3 Tbs. of garlic infused olive oil
1/2 cup of your favorite barbecue sauce
1 cup of grilled chicken breast, diced
1/2 cup of cooked crisp bacon, chopped
1/2 cup chopped green pepper
1/3 cup of thinly sliced red onion
1/2 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup of shredded monterey jack cheese

Preheat oven to 450 degrees Farenheit.
Roll out your pizza dough with a rolling pin to a 12 inch circle. Place on a pizza stone. If you don't have a pizza stone just place in a pizza baking pan. With a pastry brush, brush on the garlic infused olive oil. Bake in the oven for 8 minutes. Remove from the oven and spread the barbecue sauce on the crust leaving about a 1/2 inch space from the edges. Place your grilled chicken and bacon over the barbecue sauce. Spreading them apart evenly. Add the green pepper and the onion. Sprinkle the cheeses over the top. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until cheese is melted. Garnish with chopped parsley, if desired. Serve with a nice green salad. Enjoy!

  1. Barbecue left-overs can be used as bread fillings or sauted with eggs. It is one recipe that can be "revised" if not consumed on its original form.
