Mmmmm, BBQ pizza. This is how we do it at the Fierro household. Fire up the BBQ, get a bit creative and nourish the soul. What's for dinner? Last night we made bbq pizza with a small side spinach salad, and what else? BBQ apricots for desert.
We get the dough from A Slice of New York, really, it's the best dough around.
For the pizza:
Sauce to cover the bottom
1 1/2 cups (6 ounces) mozzarella cheese (we used the small fresh balls and sliced it)
1 cup chopped cooked chicken
1 (6-ounce) jar marinated artichoke hearts, drained and coarsely chopped
roasted red peppers, drained and cut into strips
10 kalamata olives, drained, pitted, and thinly sliced
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 1/2 tablespoons chopped fresh oregano
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1 cup (approx) crumbled goat cheese
Shape the dough on a pizza pan, add the topping and bbq on high for approx 8 minutes.
The apricots grilled for just a tad longer than I meant to have them cook, but oh, so, yummy! Just lightly brush a piece of tin foil with oil to prevent the apricots from sticking. Split in half and take out the pit. Put on the bbq for about 10 minutes. The fructose in the apricots caramelizes and adds such a significant flavor to the fruit. Then we lightly drizzle with honey and serve. Yum, enjoy!
