9 Barbecue Chicken Pizza Braid

I have had my eye on this pizza braid I saw on For the Love of Cooking for a while now! So the other night, I made one version for me and a different version for Nate! We both were really impressed with the results and this is one of those meals that could be a weekly staple in our household! :-)
I followed Pam's recipe and it was INCREDIBLE! Nate doesn't like "barbecue pizza" so I made his with spaghetti sauce, mozzarella cheese and pepperonis!
Make slits in the pizza and fold them over!
Can you tell I love cilantro??
Ready to go in the oven!
Oh my goodness! SO good!

Barbecue Chicken Pizza Braid

Pizza dough
Barbecue Sauce
Mozzarella cheese, shredded
Roasted chicken, chopped
Fresh cilantro, chopped
Red onion, sliced thinly
    Place the pizza dough onto a floured surface and let it sit at room temperature for 20 minutes.
    Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
    Place a silpat mat (or large baking tray) on the counter and coat with cooking spray and sprinkle the top with a bit of cornmeal. Roll (or spread) the dough out on top of the silpat mat into a rectangle. Drizzle a bit of sauce on top of the chicken and mix until evenly coated. Spoon some of the barbecue sauce down the center of the pizza dough, add slices of chopped mozzarella to the sauce followed by the chicken, cilantro, and red onion. Note: Don't use too much sauce or your pizza braid will be a bit soggy.
    Cut even slits on both sides of the filling with a pizza cutter. Starting at one end, fold alternating strips at an angle across filling.
    Carefully place the silpat mat onto a baking sheet then place into the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool for a few minutes before slicing and serving. Enjoy.
