BBQ Pizza and Shredded BBQ Beef April 17, 2011

Last night I decided to use the last of my Flame Tree barbecue sauce to make a barbecue chicken and beef pizza. It was easy and delicious.
Here is the recipe:

1 Store Bought Pizza Crust
Flame Tree Barbecue Sauce
Enough Shredded Beef Barbecue to cover the crust (recipe to follow)
Roasted Chicken
Italian cheese blend
6-8 Leaves of Basil, torn
1/4 Onion, finely sliced

I started with the store-bought pizza crust and coated it with the Flame Tree Barbecue Sauce from the recipe I posted earlier. Then I added some roasted chicken which we bought a few days earlier and the beef from a previous recipe, which will be posted further down the page.

This is the picture of the pizza with barbecue sauce, chicken and beef:image

Once the meats are on add 1/2 the torn basil and enough cheese to coat. Add the rest of the basil on top of the cheese and bake per instructions on the package.

This is the pizza immediately after removing it from the oven:


Add the thinly sliced onions to the pizza and slice.

Here is the finished product:


The pizza was spicy and tangy and a nice change of pace from your traditional pizza.

Here is the recipe for my easy barbecue shredded beef:

1 Pot Roast
1/2 Bottle of Beer
1 Package Italian Dressing Mix
1 c. Flame Tree Barbecue Sauce

Place roast in slow cooker and add all ingredients, making sure to coat the roast in barbecue sauce.
Cook for 4 hours on high or 7 hours on low. Once roast is done, remove from cooker and shred. Place beef back in cooker to coat in remaining sauce.

I hope you enjoy these easy recipes as much as I did!
