So yesterday we did a brisket and home made Mac & Cheese dinner:

And last weekend pizza:
https://www.smokingmeatforums.com/threads/balsamic-glazed-flatbread.314206/

So today we had all the things to put this together! Been wanting to do this for well over a year now.....

Started by just luke warming the Mac from yesterday.....

then sliced up some of the cold brisket flat & diced an end slice....

next took some brisket butter (that’s what I call it), it is the reserve juices from the wrap, with some beef stock and some Demi and then reduced a bit with a slice of butter added when the flavor is just right..... so a little bit of brisket butter in a fry pan...

Next the sliced brisket was added to the brisket butter and then just warmed so the flavor would be infused....

Made up a nice serving size of the GR flat bread dough.......

The pie was flashed on the pellet @ 500 for about 3 minutes

now the build.....first a layer of warm Mac...

next a little bit of fresh mozzarella, brisket, and diced red onions....

Bingo.....ready for the final touches.....

Now the finishing touch.....a BBQ glaze drizzle (brisket butter (2/3rds) & Kinders BBQ sauce (1/3), then a little bit of starch slurry to get the glaze thickness.... the glaze was followed by some fresh chopped herbs (thyme, rosemary, sage, red pepper, black pepper, salt).....

oh man......

this is simply pure flavor!

I’m not just saying this but this is the best pizza bite I have ever had in my life!!! The creamy cheesy Mac, seared brisket, acidic drizzle, and fresh herb.....just perfect!

I’ll take a dozen delivered to Minnesota please!!! 30 minutes or less right??? That looks just fantastic. Well done.
 
Looks good . I've done brisket pizza minus the Mac . I bet that really adds to it .
BBQ sauce drizzle takes it up a notch .
Nice work . Has my stomach growling .
 
It sure looks good and I do like all the ingredients, but not sure how they would taste all together on a pizza. I guess I‘d have to have a bite to see for myself. We did say we were going to make a pizza once a week, so I guess I’ll have to try your combo!! I’m sure it will be good!

That looks fantastic!! I can only imagine that is was a total flavor bomb. What's not to love about all those amazing ingredients?? Very creative and very well done.

Thanks chop, the Mac on pizza is something that is off menu at a pizza place in West Yellowstone that does pizza and baked Mac. One of the long time employees told us about it....so I took it to the brisket side....way better than bacon and the drizzle is the over the top add!

Sure looks good.

I'm glad you did it, because I probably never would have thought of it.

One eyed.... thanks and you are welcome! It is a beef and cheese pie worth trying!
That sure as heck aint delivery! Mighty good looking pie!

Thanks Jim! Yea not sure what 2 day pizza would cost but not $15 bills at the door.....

Thanks Al! You have to try it! The smoked Gouda in the Mac matches with the brisket and glaze perfectly. Kinders BBQ sauce is on the vinegar side of things so it adds a acidic kick similar to balsamic glaze. I’m not sure it would be good with straight box yellow Mac but the rux based white cheeses is the match....

Thanks Robert! As I posted above I can’t take all the credit as I’ve have Mac and cheese pizza before but I changed it up with crispy flat bread dough, brisket, and drizzle

Wow, that is incredibly outside the box and the product of a mad genius! Just beautiful! I started a cleanse diet, but this is on my list for first cook when I’m done eating clean. You are at a whole other level!
