What does one do with leftover barbecue chicken??

Make BBQ chicken pizza of course!  I used whole wheat pizza dough, smoked mozzarella, and a quick tomato sauce.  The flavor combination was fantastic, especially the chipotle chicken with the smoked mozzarella.  Add a glass of wine and it is a perfect Monday night dinner.

Quick tomato sauce

2 TBS of olive oil
1 small onion, finely diced
1/2 tsp of salt
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 tsp of red pepper flakes
1/4 tsp of dried oregano
1/4 tsp of fresh ground black pepper
 1 14oz can of no salt added diced tomatoes (Muir Glen)
1 TBS of tomato paste

Heat the oil in a small sauce pan over medium high heat.  Add the onion and salt, cooking for 2-3 minutes and then add the garlic.  After 1-2 minutes, add the red pepper flakes, oregano, and pepper.  Once the garlic and onion are soft, add the tomatoes and tomato paste.  Combine well and let simmer for 10 minutes.  Enjoy!
