1 ready-made 12-inch-diameter thin pizza crust
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 cup sliced onion
1/2 cup thin green or red pepper strips
1 cup cooked chicken, cut into small cubes
1/2 cup bottled barbecue sauce
1 cup shredded part-skim, low-moisture mozzarella cheese
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Heat oil in a frying pan and add onion and pepper strips. Fry over medium heat until soft, adding a little water instead of more oil if onion and pepper start to burn.
Add chicken and barbecue sauce. Stir and remove from heat. Place ready-made crust on cookie sheet. Spread chicken, onion, and pepper mix evenly on crust. Top with mozzarella. Bake for 10 minutes, watching carefully that cheese doesn't brown too much.
