  • Preheat oven to 425 F. Spread barbecue sauce on pizza crust. In a large bowl, combine chicken, onion, olives, parsley and 1-1/2 cups of shredded cheese.

  • Editor’s note: While a storebought barbecue sauce was used here, the submitter provided a homemade barbecue sauce recipe: Whisk together 2 cups ketchup, 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 2 tablespoons honey, 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, 1 teaspoon all-purpose seasoning and 1/4 teaspoon hot sauce in a saucepan over medium heat. Let it bubble, reduce to low and simmer for 10 minutes.
