not so healthy goodness

I have a simple recipe for a BBQ Chicken Pizza that I make. It is so good! It is even better than good because it is extremely different than any kind of food that I can find down here. And even better yet all involved ingredients are right here in Jalos!

Usually I roll out the dough (you know, I have to make it from scratch) and make a normal pizza. The other day I stumbled onto a blog that has all these wonderful recipes and I found one that was for a "roll 'em ups". I thought, "Hey, I can do that with my pizza recipe. And, I did just that.

I thought I would share my recipe for the pizza and pizza dough. To make the pizza into a "roll-up" just start from the long end of the dough and roll into a log and cut into 2 inch pieces. It might have just been my imagination, but I swear it tasted better than in pizza form!

BBQ Chicken Pizza

1 cup BBQ sauce
1 small red onion, finely chopped
6 pieces of cooked bacon, crumbled
1-2 cups mozz cheese or any melting cheese
2 chicken breasts, cooked and shredded
1 pizza dough recipe

Place cooked shredded chicken in a bowl and coat with some of the bbq sauce. Press out the pizza dough and coat with remaining (or however much you like) bbq sauce. Spread coated shredded chicken on the dough. Add bacon, onions and cheese on top. Bake at 425 for 25-30 minutes.

Pizza Dough

2 1/4 tsp active dry yeast
1 cup warm water
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp salt
2 tbsp olive oil
2 1/2 cups flour

Dissolve yeast in the warm water. In a separate bowl mix together all the other ingredients. After letting the yeast activate (it will start to look foamy on top of the water) add it into the bowl all the other ingredients. Mix all the ingredients together with a fork. Once it has form into a dough, you will probably have to add more flour (a little at a time) until the dough is no longer sticky. Use your hands to knead the dough. Allow dough to rest for 5 minutes.
