This is similar to the pizza available at the California Pizza Kitchen. It's great and really different from your traditional pizza.

Yummy! I made my BBQ chicken in the crockpot. I cooked 2 chicken breasts with 1/2 a bottle of barbecue sauce on low for 8 hrs, then shredded it with a fork. I used all mozzarella cheese instead of the mozzarella/gouda mix. I left out the cilantro (even though it sounds really good) because I didn't have any. I think the onions would have been better if I sauteed them in butter first to soften them, so I'll do that next time.

Delicious pizza topping! This is an unusual sounding combination, but this tasted wonderful as a pizza topping. I used a homemade piza crust and chose to follow the oven temp and baking instructions for the dough, but otherwise followed the steps to the letter. This disappeared very quickly - everyone wanted more. Thanks for sharing this winner!

Excellent pizza! I made two pizzas, one I followed this recipe using a smoked cherry bbq sauce and chili-lime gouda cheese. DH and I loved it! I made the second pizza a traditional pepperoni for my son. Well, I should have used this recipe for both, because even my picky son loved this pizza and thought his pepperoni pizza was just plain boring. I used recipe #70165 for the crust made with 1 cup of whole wheat flour. Thanks for sharing!
