CPK's BBQ Chicken Pizza

So in high school I worked at California Pizza Kitchen. I was a hostess but in my opinion that was the best job to have there. For some reason hostesses were the only ones allowed to have a free meal after a shift. Man, that was the best job ever...seriously. Anyways, the BBQ Chicken pizza was something I got on a regular basis. I also got the BBQ Chicken chopped salad all the time too. We have the recipe for that here. This is by far the best pizza I have ever made

  • 1 whole Recipe For Pizza Crust (mine Makes Two Crusts)
  • 2 whole Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts
  • 1 cups Barbecue Sauce
  • 16 ounces, weight Fresh Mozzarella Cheese, Sliced Thinly
  • ½ whole Red Onion, Cut In Half And Sliced Very Thin
  • Chopped Cilantro, to taste
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt 

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Salt chicken breasts on both sides, then place in an ovenproof dish. Pour BBQ sauce over the breasts and turn them over to coat. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until chicken is done. Remove from oven and cut into a fine dice. Set aside.
Increase oven temperature to 500 degrees.
Roll/stretch out one pizza crust. Lay it on a sheet pan drizzled with olive oil. Drizzle a little olive oil on the crust, then sprinkle on a little salt.
Spoon a couple of tablespoons of extra BBQ sauce on the crust and spread it evenly. Top sauce with half the sliced mozzarella. Sprinkle on half the diced chicken and thinly sliced red onion.
Sprinkle again with a little salt, then bake for 15 to 17 minutes, or until crust is golden brown and toppings are bubbly.
Remove from the oven and sprinkle on plenty of chopped cilantro. Cut into squares and serve immediately. Repeat with other crust and other ingredients, or save for another time.
