Ingredients

  • One loaf of frozen Rhodes Bread Dough
  • 1/2 lb Cooked Chopped Cubed Chicken
  • 3 Slices Bacon
  • 4-5 Slices of String Cheese
  • 1/3 Cup BBQ Sauce
  • 2 Tablespoons Ranch Dressing
  • Shredded Mozzarella Cheese- as much as you like
  • Johnny's Garlic Spread & Seasoning

Instructions

  1. Follow the directions on the package of Rhodes frozen bread dough to thaw dough. I used the 2-5 hour method, but put it on a cookie sheet to thaw, instead of in a loaf pan.
  2. Prepare your toppings by chopping your chicken. If you want bacon on it, fry up approximately 3 strips of bacon and chop them.
  3. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Once bread dough has thawed and risen, spray counter with non-stick spray and then roll the dough out into a circle that is slightly larger than the size of your pan.
  4. Spray your pan with non-stick spray, and then transfer the dough to the pan. Cut 4-5 slices of string cheese lengthwise down the middle. I used 4 slices for my 12-inch pan, and I used 5 slices for a cookie sheet. Place the pieces of string cheese around the edge of the pizza pan. Since the dough is larger than the pan, you should have dough about an inch farther than where the string cheese is placed.
  5. Pull dough over the cheese sticks, pressing down to seal. If your dough doesn't seal well, run your fingers under water and press the dough with your wet fingers. Use a fork to poke tiny holes all over the dough, so that you don't get air bubbles under the dough while it bakes.
  6. Spread BBQ sauce all over the pizza. Use as much or as little as you like. For me, the BBQ sauce is just a bit too sweet. So I mix in a tiny bit of ranch- maybe 2 Tablespoons full.
  7. Spread chopped chicken and bacon (if desired) over the sauce, and then sprinkle with mozzarella.
  8. Wet the crust with your fingers, and then sprinkle Johnny's Garlic Spread & Seasoning on the crust.
  9. Bake at 400 degrees for 12-15 minutes for a 12-inch round pan, and 15-20 minutes for a cookie sheet.
  10. Slice and enjoy!
