Add the toppings: Spread a thin layer of barbecue sauce on the pizza crust. In a bowl, combine the remaining barbecue sauce and chicken. Then, add on the toppings in this order: 1 1/2 cups of cheese, red onion, BBQ chicken, remaining 1/2 cup cheese.
2 cups cooked chicken, 1/2 cup barbecue sauce, 1/4 cup sliced red onion, 2 cups shredded smoked gouda
Bake: Remove the pizza pan or stone from the oven. Slide the pizza onto the pan and bake for 10-15 minutes until the cheese is melted and bubbly and the crust is crispy on the outside and cooked through (if using pizza dough). Finish with a sprinkle of fresh cilantro.

* Basically, any type of crust will work, including pre-baked pizza crust, pre-made refrigerated pizza dough, homemade pizza dough, or pre-made cauliflower pizza crust.** Some easy options include a store-bought rotisserie chicken, chicken breasts or thighs cooked in the Instant Pot or slow cooker, or any leftover chicken you have on hand.
