"This is our family's favorite homemade pizza. I've made it many times through the years. I've found that using store bought barbecue sauce gives it a "good" rating, but what brings it to a heightened level is with the use of "Chipotles in Adobo BBQ Sauce..Ohhh It's Good!" which I've posted here on this site #recipe22562 When I make this pizza I usually double the recipe (and sometimes triple when I want a lot of leftover) where I top some with thinly sliced red onion and some without to please the different tastes in the family."

Step 1

Heat oven to 400 degrees.

Step 2

Place pizza shells on pizza baking pans.

Step 3

If using fresh pizza dough, flour a counter surface and working with one piece of dough at a time, form each into a disk with your hands laying it over the floured counter. Use your hands and a rolling pin to flatten the dough until it is 1/4-inch thick or less. If the dough starts to shrink back, let it rest for 5 minutes and then continue rolling until you've reached the desired size and shape. Brush a thin film of olive oil on 2 baking sheets (or stones) and sprinkle lightly with cornmeal. Add each formed pizza dough onto baking sheets.

Step 4

In a bowl, combine pizza sauce and barbecue sauce. Set aside.

Step 5

In a large bowl, toss chicken with hot sauce. Set aside

Step 6

Spread pizza/barbecue sauce with the back of a spoon evenly over pizza

Step 7

Arrange chicken/hot sauce mixture over top of pizzas.

Step 8

Sprinkle cheeses evenly on top of each pizza shells or fresh dough.

Step 9

If using, evenly distribute red onion slices over all.

Step 10

Bake shells for 15 minutes until crust is crispy and cheese melts.

Step 11

If using fresh pizza dough, bake for approximately the same amount of time (maybe a bit over) watching for doneness until edges are crisp and the cheese begins to blister and turn golden brown. Test by gently lifting edge of pizza with a spatula to make sure that the bottom of the dough is cooked through (that it doesn't look to soft and droopy which is an indication that it is not cooked through).

Step 12

Remove from oven and cut into slices. Serve hot. Reheats pretty well too.

Made this pizza for our annual Halloween party. The adults loved it! I used Gorgonzola cheese, as it is milder and just used store bought barbecue sauce. So good!

Daily Inspiration

I knew I would love this pizza because it has everything that I love. I took the advice from another reviewer and served the blue cheese on the side -- grandkids preference, not mine. : ) We had a great Friday evening meal -- perfect for game night watching the World Series.

I made this for super bowl Sunday and it was a big hit!!! I served the blue cheese on the side as an add-on in case someone didn't like blue cheese. So those who enjoyed it sprinkled some on and others enjoyed the pizza without.
