CPK style BCP

For pizza monday, here's a recipe for CPK-style Barbecue Chicken Pizza. They spell it "Barbeque", which I find a bit annoying, but it's one of my favorite pizzas, so I decided to start making it at home.

It's made with shredded chicken breast, barbecue sauce, smoked gouda, and sliced red onion on a pre-heated pizza crust. I use Trader Joe's whole wheat crust, but the rest of the ingredients can be found anywhere.

Barbecue Chicken Pizza
2 large chicken breast halves, shredded
1/2 cup hickory-flavored barbecue sauce
6 ounces smoked Gouda cheese, coarsely grated
1 pizza crust (homemade or Boboli)
1/2 thinly sliced red onion

Preheat oven to 450°F. for 5 minutes, then pre-bake the crust for 8 minutes. Toss chicken with 1/4 cup barbecue sauce. Spread half of cheese on crust, then chicken, then red onion, then the other half of the cheese. Bake until bottom of crust is crisp and cheese on top melts, about 15 minutes. Let pizza stand 5 minutes.

The proper spelling's BBQ, of course, or Bar-B-Q if paired on a roadside sign with a happy chef pig.
