Ingredients
  •  
    Homemade Pizza Crust *(see Recipe Center)
  • 1/2  
    of a medium red onion, thinly sliced and separated into rings
  • 1   tablespoon 
    olive oil
  • 12   ounces 
    skinless, boneless chicken breasts, cut into thin, bite-size strips or chicken tenders, halved
  • 3   
    cloves garlic, minced
  • 2/3  cup 
    purchased barbecue sauce
  • 1/3  cup 
    bottled banana pepper rings
  •  
    Olive oil
  • 8   ounces 
    smoked mozzarella, smoked Gouda or provolone cheese, shredded (2 cups)
  • 4   ounces 
    Asiago or Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, finely shredded (1 cup)
  • 8   
    medium basil or arugula leaves, torn or cut into thin strips
Directions
1.
Prepare Homemade Pizza Crust.
For topping:

1.
In a large nonstick skillet, cook onion in 2 teaspoons of the hot oil over medium-high heat about 3 minutes or until crisp-tender; remove onion from skillet with a slotted spoon. Add 1 teaspoon oil, the chicken and garlic to skillet; cook and stir until chicken is no longer pink, about 4 minutes. Stir in barbecue sauce. Heat through. Transfer to a bowl; cover and keep warm. Add banana pepper rings to onion; set aside.
For pizza:

1.
Remove pizza dough circles from freezer, discarding waxed paper and brush tops with some olive oil.
2.
For a charcoal grill, carefully slide 2 of the pizza dough circles, oiled side down, onto a lightly oiled rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium-hot coals. Grill for 1 to 2 minutes or until dough is puffed in some places and starting to become firm. Carefully turn the crusts with tongs, transferring them from rack to the back of a baking sheet. Working quickly and carefully, brush oil over grilled top of crust.
3.
For each pizza, sprinkle with 1/2 cup of the smoked mozzarella and 1/4 cup of the Asiago. Top with 1/4 of the chicken mixture and 1/4 of the onion mixture. Transfer the pizzas from the baking sheet to the rack. Grill for 1 to 1-1/2 minutes more or until cheese is melted and crust is crisp. Remove pizzas from grill. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium-hot. Place dough circles on grill rack over heat. Cover and grill as above.)
4.
Repeat grilling with remaining 2 dough parts and toppings. Transfer pizzas to a cutting board. Top with basil. Serve immediately.
Note
  • *You may substitute four 10- to 12-inch packaged prebaked pizza crusts.
