BBQ Chicken Pizza

I combined several recipes to make this one my own. I love the smoked gouda in gives it such good flavor. I really think, though, that what makes a pizza great is its crust. I just used a Pillsbury pizza dough from a tube that I rolled out, but I think it would be much better with a homemade dough or one that you buy from a local pizzeria. For the BBQ sauce, I used a combination of Sticky Finger's North Carolina Sweet and Stubb's Original. Use whatever you like best.
What you'll Need:
Pizza Dough
1 lb. chicken breast, cooked and shredded
1/2 red onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 lb. smoked gouda, shredded
1-2 cups shredded mozzerella
2 oz. bacon bits
Small can pineapple tidbits
1 bottle BBQ sauce
cilantro, chopped
What You'll Do:
Prepare your crust according to directions. (I drizzled my store-bought crust with EVOO and baked it on 400 for about 8 minutes.)
Put a little oil in a pan and sautee the onion and garlic over medium until soft. Add the cooked, shredded chicken, bacon bits, and about 2/3 of the BBQ sauce and heat through.
Pour the remaining BBQ sauce on the crust and all the chicken mixture on top of that.
Add the pineapple and sprinkle the cheese all over.
Bake for about another 10 minuites until cheese is melted.
Sprinkle cilantro on top.
