I have been making homemade pizzas (dough and all) for a while now – thanks for the recipe, Mom – but I usually just stick to basic kinds of toppings like sausage, mushrooms, basil, green peppers, etc. Last night though, my boyfriend and I made a BBQ Chicken Pizza, and let me tell you: it was AMAZING.
Last night we were missing a key ingredient – bacon – which adds a really nice smokey, salty flavor, but the pizza was still divine. I even brought leftovers for lunch today! So, here’s my recipe:
2.5 cups of Flour
1 packet of active dry yeast
1 cup of hot water
1 tsp of salt
1 tsp of sugar
2 TBSP of Olive Oil
*refrigerate dough for about an hour before baking for crispier crust
*bake crust until golden brown, 3-5 minutes, before assembling pizza
BBQ SAUCE! any kind you like. A sweeter sauce works best (try Bullseye)
*Brush a thin layer on the crust
Red Onions, sliced thinly
bacon, cooked and choped
chicken, grilled and chopped
Jack& Cheddar Cheese
Assemble! Bake at 500 degrees for about 7-8 minutes, or until the cheese is golden brown. Let cool for 1-2 minutes. EAT!!!!!
Do you have any special pizza recipes? Have you tried a variation of my recipe? Please share!
