This pizza was made famous by the California Pizza
kitchen. There are a lot of variations available on the web, but most of them
are a little overpowering on the bbq end. You’ll find this pizza a subtle
improvement over the original and a huge improvement over the imitators.
Note: the crust called for here will make one
regular 12 inch pizza or 2 extra thin 12 inch pizzas. We like it best extra
thin, but if you choose to make a single pizza, cut the topping amounts in half.
2 cups warm water
1 Tbsp yeast (or 1 package)
1 Tbsp sugar
2 1/2 cups (10oz or 283.5g) Better Batter Gluten Free Flour
1 tsp salt

Meanwhile, in a mixing bowl, mix the pizza sauce and barbecue sauce
together, Set aside. Also, sauté the onions in olive oil till soft. Add the

5 more minutes, turning the heat up.
