Summer is here and the bbq is working over time. I love it as it means a lot less mess in the kitchen 😉
We love to experiment, cooking all different types of food on the bbq, from simple sausages, morcilla, pork chops, to our home-made fruit burgers, varieties of vegetable and meat kebabs and basically anything else we think of.
One evening, I decided to have a look for a simple pizza recipe to make a homemeade base and then concoct a way of using up the bbq leftovers.
Here is the result:
You can use ready made pizza bases or use the really simple recipe from Jamie Oliver:
To make Jamie’s cheat pizza dough you need:
1 cup of self-rising flour,
1/2 cup of water,
a drizzle of olive oil,
a pinch of salt
Add all the ingredients into a mixer and mix until all the ingredients are mixed together in a soft, wet dough.
Slowly add more flour, up to 1/3 to 1/2 cup, until you have an elastic sought that you can work with.
Roll out on a lightly floured surface or, as I do, roll between two strips of cling film (This is a great way to avoid the dough sticking and allows you to roll it very thinly).
Place the pizza base on a greased oven tray and bake ay 180ºC in a preheat oven for 8 – 10 minutes.
For the BBQ Leftover Topping:
Tomato purée / salsa or a simple white sauce for the base topping
Grated cheeses of any type (mozarella is best though)
Chopped BBQ leftovers
Salt and pepper
Chopped fresh herbs & chills (optional)
Add your choice of sauce (tomato or white)
Sprinkle over a mixture of grated cheese
Add your chopped bbq leftover and any vegetables
Place slices of extra cheese over the top
Season to your liking and add a drizzle of olive oil over the top.
Place in the oven for 10 to 12 minutes until the cheese has all melted.
Slice and serve. (Our sweet potato chips are great with this 😉 )
This is such a simple recipe that it has become a regular in our house already this summer.
