Ingredients:
Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method


Cooking Directions:
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
=== CHICKEN PIECES ===
36 pieces boneless skinless chicken breasts in 1/4"
cubes
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons favorite BBQ sauce
(we use a spicy-sweet sauce)
=== FOR THE PIZZA ===
Basic pizza dough for 2 pizzas
(or 2 prepared pizza crusts)
cornmeal, semolina or flour -- for handling
1/2 cup favorite BBQ sauce
(we use a spicy-sweet sauce)
2 tablespoons shredded smoked Gouda cheese
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup small red-onion in 1/8" sliced pieces
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

To make the BBQ Chicken: In a large frying pan, cook the chicken in olive
oil over medium-high heat until just cooked, 5 to 6 minutes. Do not
overcook. Set aside in the refrigerator until chilled through. Once
chilled, coat the chicken with two tablespoons BBQ sauce; set aside in the
refrigerator.

To make the pizza: Place a pizza stone in the center of the oven and
preheat to 500 degrees for one hour before cooking pizzas.

Use a large spoon to spread 1/4 cup BBQ sauce evenly over the surface of
the prepared dough within the rim. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon smoked Gouda
cheese over the sauce. Cover with 3/4 cup shredded mozzarella.

Distribute half the chicken pieces evenly over the cheese (approximately
18 pieces). Place approximately 18 to 20 pieces of red onion over the
surface. Sprinkle an additional 1/4 cup mozzarella over the top of the
pizza.

Transfer the pizza to the oven; bake until the crust is crisp and golden
and the cheese at the center is bubbly (about 8 to 10 minutes). When the
pizza is cooked, carefully remove it from the oven; sprinkle 1 tablespoon
cilantro over the hot surface. Slice and serve.

Repeat with the remaining ingredients for a second pizza. (The two pizzas
may be prepared simultaneously if you are careful in placing the pizzas at
opposite corners of your pizza stone.)

This recipe yields ?? servings.
