BBQ Chicken PIzza

Okay, I have vowed to only post my favorite recipes here - nothing that's just average, nothing that I would consider "good enough." And since BBQ chicken pizza is one of my favorites, here you go:

-1 bag Trader Joe's pizza dough (or any other brand)
-1 or 2 TBL olive oil
-1 cup bbq sauce
-Cooked chicken breast meat, approximately 1 c. chopped (I buy TJ's "Just Chicken")
-thin sliced sliced red onion (or chopped green onions)
-shredded cheese (mozarella, monterey jack, smoked gouda, or any combo of these)
-chopped cilantro

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray pizza pan with cooking spray. Roll dough on board with cornmeal (my favorite) or flour. Spread dough on pan, brush with olive oil. Bake for 6 minutes. While baking, chop chicken and toss with half of the bbq sauce. Remove from oven- if dough has puffed, poke raised spots with knife to deflate. Spread remaining bbq sauce on crust. Top with half of the cheese. Top with chicken and onions, and then sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake for 14-16 minutes more until brown and crisp. Allow to rest at room temp for 10 minutes. Sprinkle with chopped cilantro. Enjoy!
