Ingredients

  • 1 ea Pizza Crust See notes
  • 1 ea Blackened Cajun Chicken Breast See notes
  • 1 ea Barbecue Sauce I used Sweet Baby Ray's
  • 1 ea Banana Peppers Sliced
  • 1 ea Capers
  • 1 ea Cheddar Cheese Freshly shredded
  • 1 ea Mozzarella Cheese Freshly shredded

Instructions

  • I cook my pizzas on a Green Egg. This is one of the few setups I'll traditionally use. Because I like to cook these pizzas at 700+ degrees, I'll usually get the egg going an hour before I'm ready to use it. Anyways, onto the recipe!
  • Prepare your dough. Put it on a well floured surface and ensure you'll be able to easily transfer it off.
  • Apply an amount of BBQ sauce to the crust of your liking (in this case, the top crust is the BBQ one).
  • Evenly distribute the chicken, peppers, and capers.
  • Evenly sprinkle on the cheese (top of photo again).
  • Place in your oven / egg and keep a close eye on it. Be sure to heavily flour or apply corneal to the pizza stone! Otherwise your pizza will stick and be ruined (speaking from painful experiences here).
  • If you're using a setup similar to mine, you'll want to remove your pizza somewhere between 30 seconds and a minute. Don't let it burn. Enjoy!

Notes

  • I apologize for not better measuring out my ingredients here.  Sometimes I get a bit carried away or just don’t have time and forget to document what I’m doing.
  • For the pizza crust, I used my recipe for Pizza Crust Low-Mid Rise.
  • For the chicken, I used my recipe for Blackened Cajun Chicken.
  • Cooking pizza is a bit of an art.  Everyone has a different opinion on how to do it, what crust to use, whether to partially pre-bake the crust, etc.  Find what works for you.  I prefer to use flour rather than cornmeal.  I don’t usually pre-bake my crust, but I would definitely need to if I didn’t let pizza stone get super hot first.
  • Curious about that pizza with the chocolate sauce in the images?  Check it out here Caramel Smore Pizza.
