BBQ Chicken Pizza

This is what Sandra's Lee's pizza looks like. Mine, on the other hand, looks slightly different but the taste I am sure was still the same. YUMMY!!!I was watching one of my favorite cooking shows this morning...SANDRA LEE and was inspired to make this pizza. It was super easy, DELICIOUS and fun to be outside barbecuing.
In picture: honey BBQ, bacon bits, pizza dough, green apples, green onion, and mozzarella cheese
1/2 pound chicken cutlets
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
Salt and pepper
1 (13.8-ounce) can refrigerated pizza dough (recommended: Pillsbury)
1 cup BBQ sauce
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1 cup green apple, sliced
1/4 cup real bacon bits
2 green onions, sliced
Set up grill for direct cooking over medium-high heat. Oil grate when ready to start cooking.

Brush chicken with vegetable oil, season with salt and pepper. Place chicken on the grill and cook until done, about 2 minutes per side. When done, slice into 1-inch pieces, reserve.
Spray a perforated disposable cookie sheet with nonstick cooking spray (I didn't have one so I just used a regular cookie sheet). Carefully remove pizza dough from can. Unroll dough and place on cookie sheet on the grill. Let cook 2 minutes and turn pizza over.

Spread BBQ sauce over pizza leaving a 1-inch border. Next, top with mozzarella cheese, diced apples, chicken, and bacon pieces.

Cover with grill lid and cook 5 minutes until cheese is melted and bubbly.

Serve hot, topped with green onions.

This is what my pizza looks like...I put BBQ sauce, then layered it with bacon, apples, chicken, green onion, and then cheese (a little different then the directions but the out come is still the same). YUMMY!!!

This is a healthy lunch/dinner treat that is great to make on a warm spring day. It was super easy and quick!

Cook's Note: Cooking indoors: Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Lightly spray baking sheet with cooking spray; set aside. Carefully unroll dough and place on prepared baking sheet. Press out dough with clean hands to form 13 by 9-inch rectangle. Use oven mitts to place baking sheet in preheated oven. Bake in for 7 minutes or until crust just begins to brown. Use oven mitts to remove crust from oven and top as directed. Use oven mitts to return to oven for 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown and cheese is melted and has begun to bubble.
