  • 1 (12-inch) prepared pizza crust
  • 3/4 cup barbecue sauce (1/2 cup for pizza, 1/4 cup for drizzling over chicken)
  • 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup shredded extra sharp white cheddar cheese
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 medium boneless, skinless chicken breast (to yield about 1 cup shredded or cubed cooked chicken)
