1large pizza crust store-bought or homemadeIf using store-bought, I like Mama Mary's Whole Wheat Pizza Crust.
1/3cup+ 2 tablespoons barbecue sauce
1cupgrated smoked Gouda cheesedivided (Mozzarella works well, too.)
1cupcooked and shredded chickenI use rotisserie chicken.
1/2cupcanned or fresh pineapple chunks
fresh cilantro for topping
Preheat oven according to pizza crust instructions and prepare pizza baking pan/stone, if using.
Toss 2 tablespoons of barbecue sauce with the cooked, chopped chicken to coat it. Set aside.
Spread 1/3 cup (more or less, depending on preference) barbecue sauce over pizza crust. Add a layer of 1/2 cup of cheese over the barbecue sauce. Next, top with chicken, the reserved cheese, sliced onion and pineapple.
Bake pizza according to crust instructions. I baked my pizza at 450 degrees F. for about 10 minutes.
Remove from the oven, top with fresh cilantro, slice and serve.
