Either make your own pizza dough, or buy some ready made from an Italian deli – make sure it is really good quality if you aren’t making your own. Come up with your own favorite toppings, or use this version – it was a real hit at our good friend Karli’s wedding stagette! I think the wood fire oven made all the difference, but not everybody has one of those in their back yard. We have had great pizzas just off our grill too – so try it! Of course, you could buy BBQ sauce too – but I just like making it so I have included that recipe.
- 1 tbsp butter
- 1 small onion, minced
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 1/2 tsp dried thyme
- 1 cup ketchup
- 1/2 cup cider vinegar
- 2 tbsp molasses
- 1 can or bottle beer
- 1 cup beef broth
- 1/4 cup hot sauce
- zest & juice of 1 lemon or lime
- 4 tbsp maple syrup
- 4 tbsp soya sauce
Heat oil in heavy saucepan and saute onions until soft. Add the rest of the ingredients and bring to a boil – allow to simmer until it has reduced and is nice and thick. Taste to adjust for seasoning. Sometimes just a bit of salt and pepper is all you need – but taste, taste, taste! Get it just the way you like it.
Grill chicken breasts over indirect heat, basting with bbq sauce until cooked through, and juices run clear – allow to cool, then shred.
Grate jalapeno havarti cheese – set aside
Thinly slice red onions and cook over moderate heat until carmelized – allow to cool
Cook one side of the pizza on your grill – or in your wood fire oven – turn over and dress with:
slivers of green and yellow peppers
Return to grill or oven and cook just until cheese is bubbling and crust is golden and crunchy.
