Paula made this amazing looking "BBQ pizza" on her show last night. She actually grilled the crust before adding the toppings then cooked it in the oven. I'm so going to make this.
Perfect Storm Pizza Recipe courtesy Paula Deen, 2008 ````````````````````````````
1 1/2 cups cooked, shredded barbecue rotisserie chicken 1 1/2 cups barbecue sauce 1 pound pizza dough, recipe follows or store-bought 1/4 cup olive oil 1 cup shredded sharp Cheddar 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese 1/4 cup small diced yellow bell peppers 2 tablespoons thinly sliced green onions Sour cream, optional
Preheat a large, 2 burner cast iron grill over medium-high heat. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Toss chicken in 3/4 cups of the barbecue sauce.
Divide the dough in half. On a lightly floured surface roll 1 piece into a 10-inch circle. Stretch it by hand to make it an oval so it will fit on the grill. It doesn't have to be perfectly shaped but try to make the thickness as even as possible.
Lightly brush 1 side of the dough with olive oil. Transfer to the preheated grill, oiled side down and brush the other side with olive oil. Within 1 minute the dough should begin to puff and get crisp on the bottom. Flip the dough over and grill another minute or so until marked and crisp. Transfer the grilled pizza crust to a parchment paper lined sheet pan.
Spread 3/4 cup of barbecue sauce on top of pizza crust. Scatter chicken, the cheeses, diced peppers and green onions over crust. *Cook's Note: Do not over top the pizza or it will be too heavy for the crust and will make it soggy.
Bake the pizza in the oven for 5 minutes or until the cheese melts. Repeat with remaining ingredients.
Cut pizzas into wedges and serve with sour cream if desired.
I'm a stay at home Christian mom of 7 kids ranging in age from 19 down to 6. I am truly a country girl at heart and hope to someday move to a small farm out in nowhere :) I love my family and my husband,I love to cook and try new recipes~mostly down home style food I ate growing up.
If you want a glimpse of Southern life,Come close and walk with me;I'll tell you all the simple things,That you are sure to see.You'll see mockingbirds and bumblebees,Magnolia blossoms and dogwood trees;
Caterpillars on the step,Wooden porches cleanly swept;Watermelons on the vine, Strong majestic Georgia pines Rocking chairs and front yard swingsJunebugs flying on a stringTurnip greens and hotcornbread,Coleslaw and barbecueFried okra, fried corn,fried green tomatoes,Fried pies and pickles too.
There's ice cold tea that 's syrupy sweet,And cool, green grass beneath your feet;Catfish nipping in the lake,And fresh young boys on the make.You'll see all these thingsAnd much, much more,In a way of life, that I adore.
