|BBQ Chicken Pizza|
- 1 (1/4 oz) pkg active dry yeast
- 1 c warm water
- 1 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
- 2 tsp salt
- 2 1/2 c flour (can substitute whole wheat flour)
- additional flour for kneading
- small amount cornmeal
To make the pizza, preheat the oven to 475 degrees. Place dough on a lightly floured work surface and flatten with your hand. Using a floured rolling pin, roll dough outward from the center. Form dough into a circle or rectangle (whichever shape your baking stone or pizza pan is).
Sprinkle baking stone, pizza pan, or baking sheet with a small amount of cornmeal. Lay the crust on the stone or sheet. Top as desired. The BBQ chicken pizza shown in this picture was made with about 1/2 bottle of BBQ sauce, some mozzarella cheese, grilled chicken, and red onions. You could also use pizza sauce and any other toppings you like such as pepperoni, sausage, ham, peppers, etc.
Once the pizza is topped, let it rest about 10 minutes for a crispier crust. Bake pizza for 15-20 minutes or until the cheese is melting & browning a bit. If desired, sprinkle with sliced fresh basil. (If adding fresh basil don't add until after the pizza comes out of the oven so the basil doesn't burn.)
