I have been making so many pizzas this summer that I haven’t been able to keep up with the blog posts. Andrew’s former student Rob and his girlfriend joined us for dinner in June before they headed off to NYC. Rob is a foodie, but he didn’t have any special requests so I decided to make a Sausage and Pepperoni Pizza and take a second shot at my Barbecue Chicken Pizza.
I think you need more than two types of meat to classify a pizza as meat-lovers so I can’t label this pizza as that, but this one sure tasted great. I used precooked sausage from Wegmans prepared food section and turkey pepperoni. The flavor from the sausage, pepperoni, and mozzarella cheese combined for guest-satisfying first pizza.
The second pizza was the show stopper of the night. Last summer I made a BBQ chicken pizza, but used store bought sauce and red onions. For this pizza I marinated the chicken in homemade sauce. First, I spread on a thin layer of BBQ sauce onto the dough. Then, rather than using mozzarella like last time, I sprinkled on cheddar cheese. Finally, I placed the grilled BBQ chicken on top. The homemade sauce and the cheddar cheese made all the difference. I still prefer onions on my BBQ chicken pizza, but this was still a winner.
