Recipe: BBQ Chicken and Garlic Chicken Pizza

Here are the recipes if you want to give either one a try:

2 3/4 to 3 1/4 cups flour
1 T. yeast
1/4 t. salt
1 cup warm water
2 T. oil

Mix half flour, yeast, salt. Add water and oil. Mix well. Let sit for 5 minutes. Stir in as much remaining flour as you can. Turn out on floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic. Divide in half. This recipe makes two crusts. Roll out to fit pizza pan. If you want regular pizza top it right away and bake. If you want a thicker crust let it rise a bit before topping. If you want thinner and crispier crust, immediately bake crust only at 400 degrees for about 12 minutes. Then top and bake again.

BBQ Chicken Pizza
1 pre-baked crust (see above or store bought)
2 cups shredded cooked chicken
1 cup BBQ sauce
1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded

Mix chicken and BBQ sauce. Spread over crust. Top with cheese.
Bake at 400 for 8 -12 minutes. Makes 8 slices.

Gourmet Chicken Garlic Pizza
1 pre-baked crust (see above)
1 cup cooked chicken, diced
2 roma tomatoes, chopped
3-4 green onions, sliced
2 T. parmesan cheese
1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
1/3 cup garlic caesar dressing

Spread dressing on crust. Top with chicken, tomatoes, and onions.
Sprinkle parmesan cheese over pizza first,
followed by mozzarella. Bake at 400 for 8-12 minutes.
(Could use ranch or alfredo sauce instead of caesar dressing.)
