BBQ Chicken Pizza with Whole Wheat Flax Crust

It is Tasty Tuesday!!!

Like I said last week I was going to share with you the yummy BBQ Chicken Pizza! The Dough was sooo delicious and healthier than other crusts, a whole wheat flax seed crust!  It is also a quick rise dough, so it only takes about 45 minutes to fully prepare!

Whole Wheat Flax Pizza Crust

1 cup All purpose flour
1/2 cup Whole wheat flour
2 tbsp flax meal or ground flax seed
1 envelope Quick rising yeast (8 grams or 2 1/4 tsp)
1/2 tsp Salt
2/3 cup warm water
2 tsp Olive oil
2 tsp Honey
1 tbsp Cornmeal (optional)

1. Combine both flours, flax, yeast, and salt in a bowl.
2. Combine water, oil, and honey in another bowl.  Pour this mixture over the dry ingredients.
3. Using a wooden spoon, mix until the dough forms a ball.
4. Place the dough on a lightly floured surface and knead for approximately 2 minutes.
5. Spray a bowl with olive oil spray, place dough in bowl and cover with plastic wrap
6. Let the dough rise for about 20 minutes until the dough as doubled its size.  (place in a warm place)
7. Spray pizza pan and if desired you can put the cornmeal on the pan.

BBQ Chicken Pizza

1/4 cup pizza sauce (I used tomato pasta sauce since that is all I had)
1/4 cup BBQ sauce (Bulls-eye is my personal favourite)
1 to 1 1/2 cup cooked sliced chicken (I used leftover grilled chicken) - About 2 chicken breasts
1 tsp Olive oil
1 onion (sliced)
1 red pepper (sliced)
1/4 cup green onion
2 tbsp chopped parsley.
1/2 to 1 cup Cheese of choice (I used marbled cheddar)

1. Preheat oven to 425 F.
2. Combine 2 tbsp of BBQ sauce with the tomato sauce and spread on top of crust.
3.  If the chicken breasts are not cooked, grill them until cooked, and toss with the rest of the BBQ sauce.
4.  Heat oil in skillet and saute the onion and red pepper until softened.
5. Place chicken and veggies on pizza
6. Sprinkle on desired amount of cheese, green onions, and parsley.
7. Bake for approximately 10 to 12 minutes.
