BBQ Chicken Pizza (Homemade BBQ Sauce)

Hello friends!  I finally got home from my parents and hubby and I decided to spend the first day we could in the kitchen making OUR idea of the perfect BBQ sauce.  Honestly, neither of us are a huge BBQ sauce fans.  I love Cookies, and that is it.  I was game for making our own, at least we could make it how we wanted.  I whipped up a batch of pizza dough, and while it was raising we went to work!

We both like a bit of sweetness and smoke but it took us a bit to get rid of the plain "tomato base" flavor.  We worked, and added, and discussed and then messed it up and then brought it back about 10 times!  I hope you enjoy this sauce, that is especially incredible with chicken.  As I mentioned we made a Chicken BBQ Pizza out of it,  and it was deeeeee-lish.  When two, NON BBQ sauce lovers tell you it was great, it had to be great!  Right?

I used dehydrated onion in this, feel free to mince an onion and saut√© it before adding it.  I don't groove hugely on onions so I opted for dehydrated so I had a bit of the bit, but none of the slime.  Hot sauce is also optional, use it to your taste or leave it out completely!

2 cups ketchup
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
2 tbsp. vinegar
2 tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. dehydrated onion
2 tsp. garlic powder
2 tbsp. molasses
1 tsp. liquid smoke
1 tbsp. worcestershire sauce
1 tsp. teriyaki sauce
1/4 cup water

Combine a medium saucepan and bring to a boil, stir constantly.  When it comes to a boil, turn burner off and let sit to cool.   This will yield just about 2 cups of BBQ sauce!

For the pizza (it will make 2) you will need:

4 large chicken breasts, roasted and sliced thin
4 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 recipe of my Pizza Dough

Follow instructions for pizza dough.  When the dough has doubled in size, divide in half and spread out between 2 pizza pans.  Add half of the sauce to each pizza, and spread it out.  Lay sliced chicken on top, and finally sprinkle with cheese!  Bake at 450  degrees F for 15-20 minutes!

Slop it, slap it, and smack it good!
