Homemade Pizza Friday: BBQ Chicken Pizza

So, Friday rolls around and what does the family usually want for dinner? Pizza! Unfortunately, if we order pizza we would most definitely exceed the $5 meal limit. The solution? Homemade pizza Fridays! Every Friday I will feature a different kind of pizza that I make from the comfort of my very own kitchen...for $5 or less.

1 Chicken Breast (1.61)
1 Cup BBQ Sauce (.36)
1/2 Red Onion (.16)
1 Cup Mozzarella Cheese (.60)

Step 1:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cube your chicken and add 1/2 cup of BBQ sauce. Stick it in the fridge and let it marinade for about 30 minutes.

Step 2:
While your chicken is marinading, take your pizza dough and roll it out onto your pizza stone.

Step 3:
Take the chicken out and cook it on the stove.
Step 4:
Throw your onions into a frying pan and sautee them until they are an opaque color. When they hit that color, throw the chicken in with it to mix the flavors for about 2 minutes.
Step 5:
Pour 1/2 cup of BBQ sauce onto the pizza and spread it out--this will serve as your pizza sauce.
Step 6: Add the chicken and onions.
Step 7:
Pour a cup of cheese on top of the chicken/onion mixture.
Step 8:
Put it in your pre-heated oven and let it cook for 15-17 minutes and then pull it out.
You're ready to serve!

Total cost of meal: $3.03
