TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Grill: 10 min. YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (6 ounces each)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup barbecue sauce, divided
  • 1 tube (13.8 ounces) refrigerated pizza crust
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 medium red onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded Gouda cheese
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh cilantro

Directions

  • 1. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. Moisten a paper towel with cooking oil; using long-handled tongs, lightly coat the grill rack. Grill chicken, covered, over medium heat or broil 4 in. from the heat for 5-7 minutes on each side or until a thermometer reads 170°, basting frequently with 1/2 cup barbecue sauce. Set aside and keep warm.
  • 2. Divide dough in half. On a lightly floured surface, roll each portion into a 12-in. x 10-in. rectangle. Lightly brush both sides of dough with oil; place on grill. Cover and grill over medium heat for 1-2 minutes or until bottoms are lightly browned.
  • 3. Remove from grill. Cut the chicken into 1/2-in. cubes. Spread the grilled side of each crust with 1/4 cup barbecue sauce; layer with chicken, onion, cheese and cilantro. Return to grill. Cover and cook each pizza for 4-5 minutes or until the bottom is lightly browned and cheese is melted. Yield: 2 pizzas (4 pieces each).
