This is the QUICKEST & EASIEST homemade BBQ Chicken Pizza you will ever make!

14oz refrigerated whole wheat pizza dough
4oz of breast meat from a store bought rotisserie chicken
4tbsp BBQ sauce – DIVIDED
1oz reduced fat shredded mozzarella cheese
1oz shredded Gouda
1-2 thin slices of red onion
1tsp olive oil
Fresh ground pepper
Flour (for working surface)
Fresh Cilantro for topping

Allow pizza dough to sit in package on counter for 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 425 degrees with baking sheet in the oven on the middle rack. Remove 4oz of breast meat from a store bought rotisserie chicken (this ended up being half the full breast) and shred it in a small bowl with 2 forks. Season with a little fresh ground pepper (salt if you choose) and then mix in 2tbsp of BBQ sauce – set aside.  Lightly flour a piece of parchment paper and stretch dough out to desired thickness, add more flour as necessary to keep it from sticking to hands/paper. Pierce several holes in the dough with a fork. Next using a pastry brush, cover the entire top surface of dough with 1tsp of olive oil. Using the same brush, add the remaining 2 tablespoons of BBQ sauce. Sprinkle the mozzarella/gouda cheese evenly over the dough. Top with shredded chicken and a little more fresh ground pepper. Slide parchment paper onto preheated baking sheet and bake 18-22 minutes or until crust is golden brown rotating a few times to ensure even cooking. Top with fresh cilantro after slicing.

Let me just start off by saying that I am SO EXCITED to finally have my hands on this. I had looked everywhere for this; multiple Sprouts, Whole Foods, numerous grocery stores and come to find out it has been at AJ’s Fine Foods this whole time! I read about this sauce in one of the cooking magazines that I get and I was instantly intrigued by it.

It is a traditional Moroccan red pepper sauce, blended using only 6 simple all natural ingredients; red chili pepper, red bell pepper, garlic, extra virgin olive oil, vinegar, salt. The smell when you first open the jar is AMAZING! I knew what it was going to taste like even before putting it in my mouth!

I can’t wait to start messing around with this in the kitchen. I’m definitely a sucker for the Harissa Spicy, so good!

I highly encourage you to check it out! http://www.casablancafoods.com/
