hawaiian BBQ chicken pizza... 1 hours and 35 minutes

the goods:

1 teaspoon active dry yeast
4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil

1 boneless, skinless chicken breast
2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
3/4 cup barbecue sauce, divided
4 slices bacon, cooked and chopped
2 cups shredded mozzarella
1 cup fresh pineapple, chopped into small pieces
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped or torn
1 clove garlic, minced

 To make dough: pour 1 and 1/2 cups warm water into a bowl and sprinkle the yeast over it. Combine the flour and salt in the bowl of a stand mixer. With the mixer on low, drizzle in the olive oil until just incorporated. Gently stir the yeast/water mixture and slowly drizzle it into the flour mixture. Mix until the dough forms a ball. Drizzle a little olive into a clean bowl. Toss the ball of dough into the bowl and turn over to coat in oil. Cover the bowl with a moist kitchen towel and set in a warm place for 1 to 2 hours.
Preheat oven to 475 degrees. Heat grill to medium-high heat. Brush both sides of chicken with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill until cooked through, rotating once halfway through, and brushing with 3 tablespoons of the barbecue sauce during the last 1-2 minutes of grilling. Remove from grill and set aside to cool for 5 minutes.
 Stretch or roll the dough to desired shape, size, and thickness on a floured sheet pan. In a small bowl, stir together 1 tablespoon olive oil and minced garlic. Brush entire surface of dough with oil and let rest 10 minutes. Cut chicken into cubes. Brush dough with 1/2 cup barbecue sauce. Top with 1/3 of the mozzarella cheese, then top with chicken, pineapple, and bacon. Sprinkle with remaining mozzarella. Bake in oven on a pizza stone until crust is golden, about 11-13 minutes. Slice and serve topped with cilantro.
