BBQ Chicken Pizza

If you read yesterday's post. then you are probably wondering what I did with the pork rub. When my husband I were dating we had a weekly date nite that we affectionately called "movie nite". It was the one night a week solely devoted to us. It was almost always the same night of the week so we had something to look forward to and knew that was our night so nothing else was planned. Since we didn't live together, some weeks it was the only night we actually got to see each other. On a normal movie nite, Jake made dinner and we watched a movie.

On occasion when we didn't know what to have for dinner, we would go to the store together in search of something. One night we stumbled upon this pork rub. Not being big on pork, we decided to try the rub on some baked chicken. We loved it. It has a sweet and savory taste to it, kind of resembling a BBQ flavor but spicier.

One night when we needed a new dinner idea, we put this together and another winning recipe was born!

BBQ sauce
mozzerella cheese

Cut the chicken into bite size pieces. Cook they are almost pink. Sprinkle pork rub seasoning over chicken. Finish cooking chicken until no longer pink, it will cook a little more in the oven.

On a rolled out pizza dough, brush with your favorite BBQ sauce. Layer on the cooked chicken. Top with mozzerella cheese.

Bake until cheese is melted and dough is crispy.
