BBQ Chicken Pizza

This dough recipe is from Kim, The Farmers Wife and she is such an amazing cook & friend.  I could go on for days about how much I love her but you can discover how amazing she really is, by going to check out her site & tell her I sent ya!!!  Kim makes her dough in a bread machine and all I did was adapt the directions to be able to prepare it, without one.  This is the easiest pizza dough you will ever make, it takes 40 mins to rise, that's all.  You can decide an hour before dinner to have pizza and have your own homemade crust ready in that time.   

For the dough
3/4 cup warm water (not more than 110F)
2 tsp active dry yeast
2 tsp sugar
1 1/2 T olive oil
2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp garlic powder

Preheat oven to 170F.  In a small bowl, dissolve the yeast and sugar, in the water and set aside.  Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, add flour, salt and garlic.  Once the yeast mixture starts to form bubbles (usually takes only a few mins) add the olive oil.  Then pour yeast mixture into dry ingredients and combine til dough forms.  It should a bit sticky at this point.  On a well floured surface knead dough for several minutes until it comes together, continue adding small amounts of flour until the dough is no longer sticky.  Turn off your stove.  Then place dough in a oven safe bowl and cover with damp towel, place in oven.  Let rise for 40 mins or until doubled in size.  Roll dough out on a well floured surface.  Makes a nice 16 in pizza or 2 smaller 8 in pizzas for individual servings. 

3-4 T bbq sauce
1 cup shredded chicken
handful of diced red onion
1/2 cup sharp cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 350 F with pizza stone inside.  Once the dough comes in contact with the hot stone, it's not going to move very easily, so if any holes or irregularities occur just do the best you can to fix them but don't worry about it too much, it's meant to rustic.  Add your toppings then place in oven for approximately
15 mins.  (we did 1 min on broil, just to brown the crust a little more)

Best BBQ sauce, in Memphis, Germantown Commissary!!!!  

NOTE:  I know ya'll are wondering, if I really ate this pizza since BBQ sauce has tomato puree in it, well I DID!!  We have been to The Commissary on several occasions lately and I had been testing my tummy by trying little drops of it here and there, praying that no challenges would arise.  Well, it worked!!!  So, we decided it was time to re-introduce REAL BBQ sauce and I couldn't be more thankful to finally be eating a BBQ pizza again, wow what an amazing experience...I feel FREE!!!
