1 boneless, skinless chicken breast

2/3 cup preferred barbecue sauce, divided

4 slices bacon

1 lb prepared pizza dough

6 oz mozzarella, torn into 3/4-inch chunks or shredded

2 cups pineapple, cut into one-inch chunks

1/2 red onion, very thinly sliced

1 jalapeño pepper, very thinly sliced


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Lightly oil a large, rimmed baking sheet.
  2. Place chicken in a medium saucepan and add water to cover. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat, cover and simmer gently until chicken is cooked through — about 15 minutes.
  3. Transfer chicken to a cutting board and shred with two forks. Place shredded chicken in a medium bowl and toss with 1/3 cup of barbecue sauce.
  4. In a skillet over medium heat, cook bacon, turning, until browned and crisp. Transfer to paper towels to drain. Let cool, then crumble bacon.
  5. Press pizza dough into a 14-inch round on prepared baking sheet. Spread with remaining 1/3 cup barbecue sauce, leaving a one-inch border. Top with chicken, mozzarella, pineapple, onion, bacon, and jalapeño.
  6. Bake until well-browned, 15 to 20 minutes.
