Barbeque Chicken Pizza



You know, I went to the store on Sunday and purchased a rotisserie chicken at a 3.00 discount.  This is customary in most grocery stores around the country now.  I always make it my practice to purchase one of these for the amazing pricing and to use throughout the week to make my life a little easier! 
This week I also purchased a fresh whole wheat pizza dough.  I find these to be so convenient for pizza making, or bread!  Very nice to have around for a quick meal.  Combine the dough with a rotisserie chicken and you have the perfect combination for a barbecue chicken pizza! 
If you have not ever had one of these, you are missing out!  The flavors are so full.  I add a little heat to this to counter the sweetness from the barbecue sauce.  The cheddar cheese adds the perfect balance to all the flavors.  This is a favorite for all, adults and children alike.  ENJOY.

Yields: 4 large servings, 6 servings if you accompany this with a salad like I did.

Major Ingredients:

1 whole wheat or plain pizza dough
1 whole rotisserie chicken


Saute ingredients:

1 large onion chopped
2 T. olive oil
1 T. chopped garlic
1T. butter
1 T. sugar
salt and pepper to taste

In medium skillet saute all ingredients above together to caramelize the onions for a pizza topping.  Cooking time is 25 minutes on medium.

Saute vegetable ingredients:

1 whole green pepper chopped
1/2 yellow pepper chopped
1 whole poblano pepper chopped finely
1 T. garlic
2 T. olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
1 t. oregano
1 t. red pepper

Topping:

2/3 c. of your favorite barbecue sauce
chopped garlic to taste
olive oil to taste
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
2 cups chopped chicken or more to taste

After cooking the onions, add the oil and chopped vegetables and seasonings and mix well to cook through until still crunchy, but, sweetened.  Approximately 10 minutes on medium.

Roll out your dough with a sprinkling of flour until dough is to desired thickness.  Rub the dough with a mixture of olive oil and garlic.  Add barbecue sauce.  Add caramelized onions and cooked pepper combination.  Now add chopped chicken.  Finish with topping of Cheddar cheese.

Bake at 400 for 25 minutes or until crust is golden brown and cooked to your desired texture.

Enjoy!
