    This pizza was amazing! I have tried bbq pizza out in restaurants but I never really loved it. I think the combination of being able to choose a bbq sauce that I really like, controlling how much I put on the pizza (I didn't put too much), and the extra ingredients..avocado, black beans, sour cream made this pizza so so good! Thanks for the recipe..I will make this one often!
