Today I made BBQ pulled Beef Pizza. I used leftover pulled beef from last nights dinner and made my own pizza dough. Making dough only took about 15 min, but then we let it rise for a few hours. I split it in half and then let it rise separate for another hr. I love making dough and I am using an old sunset pizza dough recipe from 1979.
I also made a reduction BBQ sauce with some Baby Rays Honey BBQ and some Brown Shugga Pale Ale. I put the beer into a pan and added some sauce and cooked it down into a syrup. I used this instead of tomato sauce for my BBQ pizza.
After the doughs had risen. I stretched them out the size of my oven sheets. I layered leftover boboli pizza sauce and cheese one one, then started my other one. I started the other pizza dough with a tiny layer of the BBQ beer reduction and added a layer of cheese, I then compiled some leftover pulled Beef over the cheese and then added more cheese on top. I then sprinkled more beer reduction over the whole pizza.
Baked them both at 425 until they were bubbly and golden crusted. I cut my square pizza’s diagonally to get triangle shapes, and the cheese one went fast. I burnt the BBQ beef a little so it got a little dark, but otherwise the flavors work well. I almost wish I used more reduction, cause it could use more sauce.
Overall I am happy with homemade BBQ beef pizza tonight for dinner. We only have a few more days till foodstamps and I go to the food bank tomorrow, so more creativity in the next couple days for protien, but I will figure it out. We still have more pulled beef leftover too.
Today I also got my bakers set in the mail! Easy bakers set that is all stainless steel and not aluminum. I am so excited to finally have proper pans. I have been working with pyrex and shame some aluminum, but not anymore! Yay! I am happy I got to buy myself a gift, and its going to benefit everyone in the family, now they are in for some serious baking!
