BBQ Chicken Bacon Pizza

I stole this from Michele's recipe blog. It was SO Yummy! Thanks Michele!
Barbecue Chicken Bacon Pizza with Caramalized Onions

Makes 2 pizzas*

1/2 recipe bread dough
your favorite barbecue sauce (I used hickory flavored Bullseye)
1 chicken breast
1/2-1 lb. bacon
1 medium onion
mozzarella cheese

Peel onion and cut into thin slices. Heat a little oil in a frying pan, add onion, separating rings, then reduce heat to medium and cook until golden. Place bacon on cooking sheet and bake at 400 for about 12-15 minutes. While bacon is cooking, preheat barbecue grill; cut chicken breast into 3 tenders and coat with barbecue sauce. Grill 3-4 mintues on each side. Let rest and cut into tiny pieces. Remove bacon from oven and blot on paper towels. Crumble or cut into small pieces.

Make bread dough according to recipe, except don't let the dough raise. Use half of the dough for 1 pizza. Roll out dough on a pizza stone; spread barbecue sauce first then layer the chicken, bacon, onions then cheese. Bake at 425 for about 15 minutes. You can do both pizzas at once if you have 2 pans or one at a time, just roll out the second half of the dough after you slide the first pizza off. I actually only make one pizza at a time and just bake the other half of the dough as a loaf of bread. In that case, separate the dough right after it's done mixing and immediately put it in the loaf pan to let it rise for 25 minutes. Bake at 350 for 25minutes.
