BBQ Chicken Pizza

I recently posted a Brown Rice and Flaxseed Pizza Crust recipe that has quickly become one of my new favorite recipes. The crust is thick and fluffy, crisp yet soft. I made a BBQ Chicken Pizza which has a phenomenal combination of flavors. It's sweet and savory with a combination of a slightly sweet BBQ sauce, organic chicken, red onion, triple cheddar cheese blend, and fresh cilantro. This recipe makes 6-8 slices, but it didn't last too long between Mike and I! We just finished the leftovers and are ready to make this BBQ Chicken Pizza again!

·1 Brown Rice and Flaxseed Pizza Crust recipe
·1 tsp chili powder
·½ cup plus 1 TBS GF barbecue sauce
·1 cooked and chopped boneless, skinless chicken breast
·1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (I used a Triple Cheddar blend of Vermont White, Mild, and Sharp Cheddars)
·½ medium red onion, finely chopped
·2-3 TBS fresh cilantro, chopped

Prepare pizza crust according to directions. For added flavor, mix 1 tsp of chili powder into the dry ingredients of the pizza crust. Once the crust has been cooked at 425˚ for 15 minutes, remove from the oven.

In a small bowl, mix together chicken and 1 TBS of barbecue sauce. Spread the remaining ½ cup of barbecue sauce on the hot pizza crust. Top with shredded cheese, chicken, and red onion. Cook for an additional 10 minutes, or until pizza crust is crisp. Garnish with chopped cilantro.

Thanks for reminding me that I have Tricia Thompson and Marlissa Brown's great cookbook on my shelf. Looks like that crust holds up to your generous toppings.
