Barbecue Chicken Pizza

PIZZA! Man was I excited for this clean recipe. I mean....who doesn't love a warm, saucy, maybe cheesy, bite of pizza. I fixed this up the other night for some football madness.

Barbecue Chicken Pizza
olive oil cooking spray
1 medium yellow onion, thinly sliced
4 oz mushrooms, thinly sliced (notice I did not have these as the were OUT of them at the store!)
1/2 medium red bell pepper, thinly sliced
1/2lb boneless chicken breast boiled till cooked through and sliced into thin strips
5 oz unsalted tomato paste
2 T cider vinegar
1 T honey or maple syrup
1 tsp onion powder
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 tsp Spanish paprika
ground pepper
2/3 C pre shredded 2% mozzarella cheese
1/2tsp oregano
of course, if you do not desire to make your own clean BBQ sauce then you can omit the tomato paste through oregano ingredients and just use your fav BBQ sauce.
preheat oven to 425F

heat a large skillet over high heat for 1 minute, reduce to medium, mist with olive oil and saute onions till caramelized.

Add mushrooms and finally peppers till all veggies are cooked tender. Remove veggies from pan, mist a little more olive oil and add chicken slices to brown a touch.
Prepare BBQ sauce in small bowl. whisk tomato paste, vinegar, honey, onion powder, garlic, paprika, and black pepper. I did add about a T regular BBQ sauce for just a tad more flavor.
Place premade whole wheat pizza dough :) (convenience rules sometimes) on pan.

Smear with sauce, add chicken and veggies.

Dust the top just lightly with mozzarella.

Bake for 15-18 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbly. ENJOY!
