This homemade pizza — topped with chicken, barbecue sauce and caramelized onions — is a perfect weekend cooking project.

Ingredients

(Serves 8)

Whole-wheat pizza dough:

  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 1/2 cup warm water, 110 F
  • 1 tablespoon active dry yeast
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cups whole-wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

Toppings:

  • 1 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1/2 cup barbecue sauce
  • 6 ounces cooked chicken breast
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, sliced into thin strips
  • 1 green bell pepper, sliced into thin strips
  • 2 cups shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup feta cheese

Directions

In a small bowl, dilute the sugar in warm water; add the yeast. When yeast begins to foam, stir in salt and oil.

In a mixing bowl, combine the flours. With electric mixer on medium speed, slowly add yeast mixture. Mix until well combined. Coat a large bowl with cooking spray. Place dough in bowl and cover. Allow dough to rise in a warm area for 1 to 1 1/2 hours.

As the dough rises, prepare the toppings. In a medium saute pan on medium heat, add the onion and oil. Cook the onions until brown and caramelized, stirring frequently.

Heat oven to 400 F. Roll out the dough ball on a floured surface to 1/2-inch or desired thickness. Place dough on baking sheet. Top with barbecue sauce, chicken, onion, peppers and cheeses. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until cheese melts and crust is crisp.
