Step by step

Step 1: Preparation

Grease the skillet with oil or butter.

Cover up to the edge with pizza dough and prick some holes in it with a fork.

Bake the dough briefly in a barbecue at 160°C, for about 10 minutes.

Step 2: Barbecuing

Fill the pizza. We used for example some left over barbecued chicken thigh. We cut it into small pieces and stuffed the pizza generously.

Put the barbecue sauce over it to taste. We like it generous.

Top with slices of mozzarella, tomato slices and sprinkle with the Parmesan cheese.

Bake the pizza in a barbecue at about 160°C until the top is nicely golden brown and the filling is bubbling a bit. Depending on the thickness of your pizza, about 20 to 40 minutes.

Stap 3 Serveren

Cut the pizza in the skillet into slices and serve the pizza in the skillet. (Be careful it’s hot!!). Serve with a fresh arugula salad. Or if you have tomato and Mozzarella left over make a nice salad Caprese. Cut the tomato and Mozzarella into slices. Some fresh basil on top, dash of olive oil and a pinch of salt.
