Cheesy BBQ Chicken Pizza

Gretchen ***


I first made this pizza to use up some leftover chicken. It turned out to be so yummy now I cook the chicken just so I can make the pizza!
This is great for a busy weeknight because you can get all of the ingredients ready ahead of time.
Definitely use the smoked cheese if you can find it- it really gives it a whole other level of flavor.

Spread the barbecue chicken on the crust, and top with the caramelized onions. Sprinkle with grated cheese.
