What's for Dinner? BBQ Chicken Pizza

I posted this BBQ Chicken recipe back in October, but wanted to share it again because I tried something new that was delicious!  Instead of serving this delicious pulled chicken on boring old hamurger buns, I used it to make BBQ Chicken Pizza that, in my opinion, was better than what I used to get at California Pizza Kitchen.  I used Sweet Baby Ray's Hickory and Brown Sugar this time and it was the perfect amount of sweetness for this recipe.  And, the best part is it only took me about 20 mins to prepare once I got home from work!  I hope you enjoy.
