Hickory Double Cheese Pizza
If you love hickory flavor, this is your pizza. Sprinkle 1 cup shredded California Mozzarella and 1/2 cup thinly sliced red onions onto partially baked crust. Toss cooked chicken, beef or pork (shredded or cubed) with 1/2 cup hickory smoked barbecue sauce and spread over Mozzarella. Add tomatoes and sprinkle 1 cup shredded Monterey Jack or Cheddar and an extra drizzle of hickory sauce over all.

Barbecue Chile Pizza
This variation assumes a lively Southwestern accent. Mix one 4-ounce can chopped green chiles drained (finely minced) with 1/4 cup bottle barbecue sauce. Mix cooked chicken, beef or pork (shredded or cubed) in sauce mixture and spread on crust. Add 1 cup fresh or frozen corn and tomatoes. Sprinkle with Monterey Jack or Cheddar.
