1 cup diced rotisserie chicken

• 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

• 1/3 cup thinly sliced red onions

3. Invert a baking sheet and sprinkle it liberally with cornmeal. Transfer the dough to the baking sheet.

5. Sprinkle the mozzarella cheese on top of the barbecue sauce, and then evenly distribute the coated chicken atop the cheese. Scatter the red onions atop the chicken.

6. Bake the pizza for 10 to 12 minutes, rotating it half-way through, until the crust is fully baked and golden brown. Remove the pizza from the oven to a cutting board, sprinkle it with chopped cilantro, slice and serve.
