My first recipe - BBQ Chicken Pizza

I saw this on another website and modified a bit to make it easy. It was very yummy!

1 Pizza dough -I buy already made pizza dough at Kroger in the freezer section. They also have it at Randazzo's.
2 whole Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts
½ cups Barbecue Sauce ( I love Sweet Baby Ray's)
Olive Oil, For Drizzling
Salt For Sprinkling
16 ounces, weight Fresh Mozzarella Cheese, Sliced Thinly
½ whole Red Onion, Cut In Half And Sliced Very Thin
Chopped Cilantro, to taste (I dont' like Cilantro so no green stuff on this pizza)

Preparation Instructions
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Salt chicken breasts on both sides, then place in an ovenproof dish. Pour BBQ sauce over the breasts and turn them over to coat. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until chicken is done. Remove from oven and cut into a fine dice. Set aside.

Increase oven temperature to 500 degrees.

Roll/stretch out one pizza crust. Lay it on a sheet pan drizzled with olive oil. Drizzle a little olive oil on the crust, then sprinkle on a little salt.

Spoon a couple of tablespoons of extra BBQ sauce on the crust and spread it evenly.
Top sauce with half the sliced mozzarella. Sprinkle on half the diced chicken and thinly sliced red onion.
Sprinkle again with a little salt, then bake for 15 to 17 minutes, or until crust is golden brown and toppings are bubbly.
Remove from the oven and sprinkle on plenty of chopped cilantro. Cut into squares and serve immediately. Repeat with other crust and other ingredients, or save for another time.

Hi there and welcome to my blog! No promises as I am learning my way around. Feel free to make suggestions or comments. I started this blog for my sister-in-law Stefanie. She is always in need of very easy recipes and every time she asks me for one I tell her, look for it on my blog! Well Stefanie, here it is! As soon as I figure out how to make a recipe section I will start posting some easy ones for you!

I overslept, my car was dead, I have a sore throat and honest to god, I broke 3 nails. If this isn't the perfect day to stay in bed than I don't know what is.

Stay tuned to see what I do with this blog..I am not sure myself.
