Cooking Kelly: BBQ chicken pizza

Tim and I love pizza. It's just a great, versatile meal that can be made cheaply. Tonight, Tim took over the cooking duties to make a BBQ chicken pizza. The ingredients are simple: a pre-made pizza crust round (we like Boboli), chicken tenders, barbecue sauce (Sweet Baby Ray's is the best and shredded mozarella cheese.
Tim cut the chicken into chunks and marinated them in a quarter cup of barbecue sauce in a plastic zip-topped bag for about an hour in the fridge. He then cooked up the piece on the stove. We pre-heated the oven to 450 degrees.

When the chicken was done, Tim put barbecue sauce on the pizza crust just as though it was tomato sauce. He then scattered the pre-cooked chicken piece and topped the whole thing with the cheese. He let it cook for about 15 minutes, or until the cheese was melted and the crust was brown.
It came out smelling like a barbecue but looking like my favorite circular dish. I had two big slices and enough left overs for later.

Mmm, that pizza looks good.

You should really think about converting your resume to a downloadable PDF so people can't mess around with it.
