BBQ Pizza

Pizza is currently my favorite food. I got a Pampered Chef BBQ Pizza Pan a while back and just now got to use it. It's pretty cool to BBQ a pizza! I did too many toppings I think because the cheese on top wasn't all the way melted but it was still yummy! If you don't have a pan it's very affordable and you can get one here

First you wash your pan. I set mine on a towel and then sprayed it with cooking spray so it didn't get the spray on the counter. Then warm up BBQ to medium-high heat.

You can make your own dough or buy it. For the sake of time I just bought some. And you can use what ever you want for sauce and toppings. We did BBQ sauce for the pizza sauce and garlic chicken, pineapple, jalapenos and mozzarella cheese. Spread your dough onto the pan and then top with sauce, a little bit of cheese, toppings and more cheese.
 Place pan directly on BBQ and cook on medium-high heat for 6-10 minutes with BBQ lid shut. Check it often so you don't burn it. Enjoy!! **Make sure you have some oven mitts near by, the pan handles will get HOT and burn you - I know from experience!**

Here are some tips and recipe ideas from Pampered Chef:
*For a quick, basic cheese pizza, use 1/2 cup pizza sauce, 3/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese and 1/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese.
*Additional toppings can affect cook time.
*For best results, pre-cook raw vegetables and meats before topping pizza
*Cutting directly on pan will cause scratching, remove pizza first then slice
*Pan will darken with use on the grill. Dishwashing will help remove food residues, but will not restore luster of pan after use.
