I have been reading a lot about pizzas with different sauce toppings. So tonight I am trying a couple of quite different pizza recipes. These will be made on the BBQ. The first is the Chicken and Bacon BBQ pizza. I guess you could say it is the pizza version of the ever famous club sandwhich. I will let you know how it turns out. Here is the recipe for now.
Chicken and Bacon BBQ Pizza
6 to 8 slices bacon, fried
2 skinless, boneless chicken breasts or chicken tenders fried
1 cup (250 mL) thick ranch salad dressing
3 cheese blend (mozzarella, provolone, cheddar) shredded cheese
Grape tomatoes or whole tomato sliced
¼ cup (50 mL) coarsely chopped fresh parsley
A sprinkle of Italian seasoning.
salt and pepper to taste
Make the dough. I use Peter Reinhart’s recipe for BBQ dough which can be found here on the site. Follow the BBQ instructions.
Cook the bacon, remove from pan and then cook the chicken in the bacon grease.
Put the dough on direct heat as per instructions. Once it is nicely grilled you flip the dough on the BBQ and put the dough on indirect heat, and top with ranch dressing, the cooked bacon, the cheese and then the chicken and tomatoes. Close the lid until the cheese is melted and the crust is golden brown.
The second pizza I will be making is my Montreal Poutine Pizza. Stay tuned for the recipe and the results.
