BBQ Chicken Pizza

This recipe is for 2 pizzas. You can make it both the same or do another of your favorite. I usually make 2 different ones.

Ingredients for Pizza crust:
Dough recipe adapted from The Pioneer Woman.
 
2  14-inch pizzas

1 teaspoon Instant or Active Dry Yeast
1 1/2 cup warm water ( not lukewarm)
4 cups All-purpose flour
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/3 cups olive oil

Directions:
Add yeast to warm water.Let stand for few minutes.
In a stand mixer, combine flour and salt. With the mixer running on low speed ( with paddle or hook attachment), drizzle in olive oil until combined with flour.
Pour water/yeast mixture and mix until combined.
Coat a separate mixing bowl with olive oil.
Form the dough into a ball, and toss to coat in olive oil.
Cover the bowl tightly with plastic wrap and let it rise for 1-2 hours, or store in the fridge until you need it(up to 4 days).

Sauce and Toppings for 2 pizzas:
1/2 cup your favorite BBQ sauce
1/2 cup your favorite ranch dressing or http://delightsofculinaria.blogspot.com/search?q=buttermilk+ranch for homemade.
1 cooked chicken breast pulled apart or diced. ( you may use rotisserie chicken if desired)
3/4 cup sliced green onions green parts
1 red onion sliced
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese or more if you like extra cheesy.
16 oz. fresh mozzarella cheese thinly sliced.
1 cup fresh chopped cilantro
olive oil

Directions:

Heat oven on 415 degrees.

Combine BBQ sauce with ranch dressing.

Apply olive oil to your hands and take half of the pizza dough.
Slightly coat a pizza pan, a pizza stone or regular baking pan with olive oil.
Pull and stretch and spread the dough until crust is nice and thin ( you can use a rolling pin also, but this way its much easier).
Add about 2 tablespoons of BBQ sauce and a little salt and black pepper to the chicken and mix together.
Spread some sauce evenly on the crust.

Top with fresh mozzarella, mozzarella,green onions, red onions, and chicken.
Drizzle a little bit of sauce on the pizza.
Bake the pizza for 13-15 minutes, or until crust is golden brown and toppings are bubbly.

Sprinkle cilantro before serving.
