  • 1 pound pizza dough
  • All-purpose flour for dusting
  • ½ cup barbecue sauce
  • 1 cup chopped chicken breast
  • ¾ cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • ½ cup shredded smoked Gouda cheese
  • ¼ red onion thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro chopped


  • Set the pizza dough out for 30 minutes to come to room temperature.
  • Preheat the oven to 425°F and dust two baking sheets with flour.
  • Dust a work surface with flour. Divide the pizza dough into two smaller dough balls. Stretch or roll each dough ball into a 9-inch circle and transfer to the prepared baking sheets. Spread each dough circle with ¼ cup barbecue sauce, leaving a ½-inch rim around the edge. Top each with the chopped chicken, then the mozzarella cheese, and Gouda cheese. Scatter the sliced red onion across the top of each.
  • Bake the pizzas until they are browned and crispy around the edges and the cheese is bubbling in the center, about 15-20 minutes.
  • Remove the pizzas from the oven and sprinkle each chopped cilantro.
  • Slice each pizza into 6 pieces and serve.



Tip: Take the time to flour your board before rolling out your pizza dough to avoid breaks in the dough.
