  • 1 envelope Fleischmann’s® RapidRise® Yeast
  • 2 cups all purpose flour more or less until soft dough is formed
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup very warm water between 120 - 130 degrees Fahrenheit
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil
  • 3/4 cup barbecue sauce thick variety, more or less to taste
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup cooked chicken chopped into bite-sized pieces
  • 1/4 cup red onion thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup pickled jalapeno slices optional


  • First preheat your oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Position the oven rack to the lowest position. Lightly grease a pizza pan and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, stir together 1 cup of the flour, one envelope of Fleischmann’s® RapidRise® Yeast, sugar, and salt. Add the warm water and oil and mix with a spoon until well blended (about 1 minute).
  • Gradually add the remaining flour, stirring after each addition. Use enough flour until you have formed a soft dough.
  • Next using your hands, form the dough into a ball. Knead the dough ball on a floured surface until it is smooth and stretchy, about 4 minutes.
  • Let the dough rest for 10 minutes.
  • On a floured surface, pat and roll the dough out to a 12 inch circle. Carefully transfer the pizza dough to the prepared baking pan.
  • Using your fingers, pinch the edges of the pizza dough to create a crust edge.
  • Evenly spread the barbecue sauce on top of the dough, leaving 3/4 of an inch edge.
  • Top with shredded cheese, chicken, red onions, and jalapenos.
  • Finally, bake the pizza for approximately 15 minutes until the crust is golden brown and the cheese is melted and bubbly.
