Ingredients:
1 pound (16 ounces) of your favorite store-bought or homemade pizza crust
1 cup of your favorite barbecue sauce
1 cup crispy salt & pepper tofu pieces -or- 1 cup large-diced cooked chicken (or ½ cup of each, if making two smaller pizzas)
½ small red onion, thinly sliced
8 ounces mozzarella cheese, shredded (about 3 cups) (we use low-moisture whole-milk, but use what you like, even fresh – this recipe is very forgiving)

6. Lay sliced red onions over the top.
7. Sprinkle with shredded mozzarella cheese.
8. Bake for about 10 minutes, until the crust is golden brown and the cheese is completely melted.
