Here's one version of supreme pizza happy: sweet, spicy AND exceptionally cheesy.


  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup sweet onion slices, sliced thin
  • Pinch of salt and pepper
  • 1 (12-oz) ball prepared pizza dough
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1/4 cup pizza sauce
  • 1/4 cup BBQ sauce
  • 1 cup chopped broccoli
  • 1 cup chopped chicken
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded Roth 3 Chile Pepper Gouda or Gouda cheese, shredded
  • Green onion slices, for garnish (optional)
  • Sriracha hot sauce, for garnish (optional)
  • Crushed red pepper flakes, for garnish (optional)


  1. Place pizza stone in the oven and preheat oven to 425°F.
  2. Place butter and onion in a medium frying pan over medium-low heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, until onions are golden and lightly caramelized, about 20 minutes. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Set aside.
  3. On a lightly floured surface, roll pizza dough into a circle about 12 inches in diameter or rounded rectangle about 13 inches in length. Transfer dough to hot pizza stone; brush with olive oil and sprinkle garlic over. Spread pizza and BBQ sauces over, and top pizza evenly with broccoli, chicken, reserved onion slices, and Gouda cheese.
  4. Bake 18 to 20 minutes, or until crust is golden brown and cheese is bubbling. Remove from oven, let sit 5 minutes before cutting. Garnish with green onions, Sriracha hot sauce or crushed red pepper for more heat, if desired.

Note: If you do not have a pizza stone, you can preheat the oven, then assemble the pizza on an upside-down baking sheet. It will need about 20 to 22 minutes of baking time. Using a baking sheet will result in a less crispy crust.
