BBQ Chicken Pizza with Sauteed Peppers and Onions

Who doesn’t love pizza?  No one, right (at least no sane person…)?  I love making pizzas at home so I can put on whatever toppings I like.  Plus it is super quick and simple to make pizza at home! This past week my friends and I got to together to study for an exam and decided to make BBQ Chicken Pizza for dinner (because no study party is complete without food).  I buy refrigerator pizza crust (the Pillsbury kind from the pull apart can) and then top with sauce, cheese, and toppings as suits my mood, for the BBQ chicken pizza we went with BBQ sauce, Mexican shredded cheese, sauteed peppers and onions, and shredded chicken, yummm!


First spread the dough onto a greased baking sheet and top with some olive oil and garlic powder and then toss it in the oven.
