3 tablespoons butter
1 cup barbecue sauce

Once the chicken is shredded, place it in a large bowl and mix it with 3/4 cup barbecue sauce, honey, molasses, and brown sugar.

Spread the remaining 1/4 cup barbecue sauce over dough that has been rolled out into a rectangle. Top with mozzarella and gouda cheese. Then top with barbecue chicken mixture, pineapple, and red onion. Bake for about 10 minutes. Remove from oven add a little more cheese and cilantro. Put back in oven for about 2 to 3 minutes.
