Typically when my boyfriend and I order pizza/take-out - we order Pizza Pizza...I sorta feel bad because the bf isn't a huge fan of PP whereas I am a bit obsessed. I think they have some really good pie - other then the stuffed crust Pizza Hut pizza...yummmm.
Anyways, so when we order we both get our own "zah's" - and he totally loves his BBQ Chicken Pizza...sans the hot peppers. So this pizza typically has bits of chicken, along with red onions and bbq sauce. This next recipe is a bit similiar and probably a helluva healthier and you can of course - tweak it however much you'd like. I would probably just buy a rotisserie chicken so that it would save some extra time instead of cooking it up and then putting it on the pizza - but it's totally up to you guys and how much time you have. 
So another pizza recipe for you guys!

Bon Appetit!

Barbecued Chicken Pizza
If you have a pizza stone, place it in the preheating oven; after assembling the pie on the baking sheet, slide it onto the stone, and bake as directed. Look for ready-made pizza dough in your grocery's freezer section; it is usually sold in packages of two one-pound balls. Or, ask your local pizzeria for a pound of fresh dough. 

Prep Time - 20 minutes
Total Time - 40 minutes
Yield - Serves 4

Olive oil, for baking sheet
All-purpose flour, for dusting
1 pound store-bough frozen pizza dough, thawed 
1/2 cooked chicken, {about 1-1/4 pounds}, shredded {about 2 cups}
1/2 cup store-bought barbecue sauce
2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese
1 large zucchini, halved lengthwise and thinly sliced
1 small onion, halved and thinly sliced
Coarse salt and ground pepper

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Lightly oil a large baking sheet; set aside.

On a lightly floured work surface, use a rolling pin and your hands to roll and stretch dough to a 15-by-10-inch oval {if dough becomes too elastic to work with, let rest a few minutes}. Transfer to prepared baking sheet.

In a medium bowl, combine chicken and barbecue sauce. Leaving a 1-inch border, scatter chicken mixture evenly over dough; sprinkle with cheese, then zucchini and onion. Season with salt and pepepr.

Bake until crust is golden and cheese is melted, about 20 minutes. Serve immediately.

There you have it!
Pour that bbq sauce over that baby! Or not...it's up to you. ;)
