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 ¾ 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.
Cooking times will vary according to oven. Recommended cooking time is 12 - 15 minutes, please watch carefully during last few minutes.
