Pizza pies made in your own kitchen will almost always cost you less dough and be more healthful than their pizzeria-born brethren. Most of these easy pizza recipes call for ready-made dough, which can be found either in the refrigerated or frozen section of your supermarket. Add tomato sauce, the toppings of your choice, and a little oven time, and you’ll be adopting a new pizza motto: Down with delivery, up with homemade!
I love barbecued chicken pizza but I have never tried to make my own.

If you have a pizza stone, place it in the preheating oven; after assembling the pie on the baking sheet, slide it onto the stone, and bake as directed. Look for ready-made pizza dough in your grocery’s freezer section; it is usually sold in packages of two one-pound balls. Or, ask your local pizzeria for a pound of fresh dough.
Olive oil, for baking sheet
All-purpose flour, for dusting
1 pound(s) store-bought frozen pizza dough, thawed
2 cup(s) shredded cooked chicken
1/2 cup(s) store-bought barbecue sauce
2 cup(s) shredded Monterey Jack cheese
1 large zucchini, halved lengthwise and thinly sliced
1 small onion, halved and thinly sliced
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Lightly oil a large baking sheet; set aside.
On a lightly floured work surface, use a rolling pin and your hands to roll and stretch dough to a 15-by-10-inch oval (if dough becomes too elastic to work with, let rest a few minutes). Transfer to prepared baking sheet.
In a medium bowl, combine chicken and barbecue sauce. Leaving a 1-inch border, scatter chicken mixture evenly over dough; sprinkle with cheese, then zucchini and onion. Season with salt and pepper.
Bake until crust is golden and cheese is melted, about 20 minutes. Serve immediately.
