My husband and I love barbecue chicken pizza, but I decided to take it up a notch by adding other toppings that we love, including smoky bacon and creamy Gorgonzola. My mouth starts to water just thinking about it! —Megan Crow, Lincoln, Nebraska

"Really good! Skipped precooking the onions to save time and used a little less. Definitely will make this again! YUM!"

"Very good with an overall smoky flavor. Next time I think I'll leave the Gorgonzola off. It is a strong flavor that I don't think added much. I used Sonny's bbq sauce and smoky paprika."
