Turn the oven up to 400°F. Take a 15×10-inch pan with sides and flip it upside down. Use the bottom as the tray and spray with cooking spray.

Unroll dough on pan; starting at center, press dough into 15×10-inch rectangle. Can crimp the edges a little if desired. Bake about 6-9 minutes or until light brown. Remove from oven.

Spoon BBQ sauce over the bottom of the crust. Then sprinkle 1 1/3 cup of the mozzarella cheese. Add the chicken, peppers, tomatoes, onion. Then add remaining mozzarella cheese and cheddar cheese. Bake about 5-12 minutes longer or until cheese is melted and crust is cooked and browned. Sprinkle with cilantro. To serve, cut into squares.
