With terrific assistance from Spin, I enjoyed an EGGsellent bbq chicken pizza last night. [p]For the dough and cooking, I followed Spin's recipes, but added a little spice mixture to the dough. The spices consisted of approximately 1/2 tsp. each of garlic powder, onion powder, oregano, and a tsp+ of fennel. Next time I will add more garlic and some sea salt. Still, the dough was superb. [p]For the sauce I used Nantucket Seasonings' Brown Sugar & Bourbon BBQ Sauce. Sauce was very good, but something even a little more sweet would have been even better. Perhaps next time I will just add some molasses or honey to the same sauce.[p]Toppings were: plenty of cheese, a four blend mix of asagio, parmesan, mozzerella, and cheddar; a bit of red bell pepper for color (great advice Spin); slices of shitake mushrooms; and sliced chicken breasts.
I prepared the boneles, skinless, chicken breasts by rinsing thoroughly and patting them dry; then I pounded them until they were of uniform thickness; after that, I gave them a healthy coating of fresh ground black pepper and Lawry's seasoning. I covered the breasts with saran wrap and refrigerated for approximately 20mins. [p]I fired up humpty with the pizza setter inverted (legs up), the stone sitting flat on the inverted setter, and covered with aluminum foil to act as "drip pan". In addition to creating my drip pan, I wanted to heat up the setter and stone for the pizza coooking to follow. The grill was then giving a good spray with Pam and placed on top of the inverted setter's legs. With the BGE steady at 300F I grilled the breasts for 35 mins, flipping them once. [p]After removing the nearly done chicken breasts, I sliced them into tiny pieces (about 1/4" square) and liberally sprinkled the sauce covered dough with chicken and mushrooms, then cheese, then a little more chicken, then more cheese, and finally, the red pepper. The creation was cooked exactly as Spin suggests (I think): Stone on top of setter; Egg at 525-550F; 8 mins; check if toppings need more (I gave them another minute and a half); and remove.[p]As you can see from this report, I intend to tinker with this recipe, but even as written, it is might damned goooood!!! In fact, Mrs. E1 had requested steaks instead of pizza, but she gobbled up the pizza, and had no desire for the steak afterwards. Of course, this meant that the steaks we had thawed (in case the pizza were an unsavory flop) had to be eaten soon, and so, our steak and egg breakfast this morning made the weekend a truly happy Easter!![p]Thanks once again Spin for your Eggsellent advice!!![p]Regards,
