BBQ Chicken Pizza with Caramelized Onions

This pizza is delicious.  It came together in a flash and was probably the best BBQ chicken pizza I have ever had.   Melt in your mouth, the perfect amount of sweetness and savory.  Will be making this again!


  • 1 pizza dough
  • handful of cornmeal for pizza peel
  • 1/4-1/3 cup of favorite BBQ sauce (add as much looks good to you)
  • 2/3 cup shredded chicken (I used leftover roaster chicken from Sam's)
  • 1/2 cup shredded gruyere cheese (or gouda)
  • 1 cup mozzarella
  • 1/2 red onion
  • 1 tsp. olive oil
  • 1 tsp. butter
  • 3 TBSP fresh chopped cilantro

Preheat oven to 450. Place pizza stone in oven (or spread pizza on pizza sheet).  Slice onion in thin slices.  Add into a small skillet, add olive oil, butter and sliced onions. Cook over med-high until onions are browning and tender and sweet, reducing heat to medium if necessary.
  If using pizza stone, sprinkle pizza stone with cornmeal.  Spread dough and smear the bbq sauce over the dough.  Sprinkle chicken over bbq sauce.  spinkle cheeses over chicken.  Top the cheese with the onions.  Cook for 8-12 minutes, until crust is browning on bottom and top is golden.  Sprinkle pizza with cilantro.  Cut it and enjoy!
