Last night was pizza night.
I'd decided to be lazy and use the store bought "pizza dough in a bag" that my local grocery store always has. Unless I'm looking for it, then they're miraculously sold out. My wife said to just get Pillsbury pizza dough, which made my soul ache a little, but luckily they were sold out of that too.
So I informed the aforementioned wife that dinner would be pushed back an hour or so and whipped up a batch of my quick and easy pizza dough. It's basically Amish white bread with a little extra olive oil and a little less sugar. It makes for a pretty soft dough, but I kinda like it. It's similar to Domino's crust. Ok, you pizza snobs out there can cuss me now.
I'd had an idea to make this pizza a little different.
I stretched the dough over my favorite pizza pan (the lid to the Imusa 32qt pot with the handle removed) and put little smokies all the way around the perimeter. Then folded the dough over them.
Then brushed on some BBQ sauce
Then added some dice smoked thigh meat
Then some sharp cheddar
And finally some crispy bacon. Then baked it for 15 minutes at 450°. As you can see, the little smokies were a nice little surprise in the crust.
I'm gonna call this one a win.
