BBQ Chicken Pizza

Hrm... what to do with this?

A lil' pizza I reckon :) Mmmmm... I'm giving this one a little twist.

So first we need to get a batch of pizza dough going. Mine takes 1 hr and 40 min in the bread-maker on "dough" cycle. The recipe can be found here.

So I take that chicken and shred it on up. Then I take a little of this:

And this:

Yes, that's an apple. And then some of this:

I'd prefer Sweet Baby Rays but for whatever reason, this is what we had in the fridge. I never buy this... where did it even come from?! Anyway.

Slice up that apple (remove the core please.)

Then heat your pan with some oil.

Throw that onion on in...

Saute it until it's nice and caramelized. Yum. I forgot to take a picture.

Now remember that pizza dough that we started with? Now it's go time. My recipe makes two crusts so split that baby in half and you can either make two types or it freezes well.

Throw down some cornmeal and roll that sucker out to your desired thickness on a pizza stone or you can press it into a pizza maker like I've been doing. I loooooove my pizza maker :)

Slather on that BBQ sauce.

Then I topped it with mozzarella cheese, chicken, bacon (I had leftover from breakfast), those yummy caramelized onions, and you guessed it... apple slices.

Now all I did was plug in my pizza maker and in 8 minutes my pizza was done! I've used my pizza stone in the past as well and you'll want to cook for 18-20 min in a 400 degree oven.

The apples really melt into the pizza and just add a little tang... sort of like a pineapple?! Anyway, enjoy!
