Of course, no matter how often I make pizza dough (ok, it's not like I make it every day or something), I still can't seem to perfect it. I seem to have a problem when it comes to stretching the dough. Mine tends to either stretch too much and break here and there, or I can't get it to stretch out enough. I'm sure there is something I am doing in the process that is causing that, but I just don't know what it is. If you have an insight as to why, I would greatly appreciate the advice.
Despite struggling with the dough, this pizza turned out incredibly good. Then again, you can't really go wrong with pizza on the grill. There is just something about it that makes me go... mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!!!!!
Pulled Pork BBQ Pizza
1 pizza dough ball
salt and pepper
1 cup BBQ sauce (I would suggest going with something tangy and bold, the sweeter bbq sauces are just a bit too sweet for this pizza...at least that is my thought)
1-2 cups pulled pork (I think I just just a little over a cup, but didn't measure it)
1/2 sweet onion, diced and caramelized (you can slice them thin intead)
4 slices of bacon, diced and cooked until crispy
1 orange pepper, chopped or sliced thin (now I left mine raw and put them on the pizza, you can saute them or roast them first if you want)
1-2 cups shredded Monterey jack cheese
Preheat the grill to medium high. Stretch your dough and brush both sides with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Now you can put the dough directly on the grill, but I haven't had the nerve to do that yet (always afraid the dough will sink into the grates) so I just put it on a piece of aluminum foil that has been sprayed with non-stick spray and put that directly on the grill. Grill one side for about 3-4 minutes or until it's brown and crisp on the bottom. Remove from grill and flip the crust over. Now it's time to build the pizza. Spread the sauce over the entire thing, leaving at least a 1/2 inch of the dough around the edges uncovered. Top with pulled pork, then the caramelized onions, then the pepper, and finally top it with the cheese. Put the pizza back on the grill and cover. Grill until the cheese has melted and the crust is golden brown. Remove from grill, slice, and devour!
