Hickory Smoked Pizza


Ingredients: Pizza
1 cup smoked garlic, minced
1 medium red or sweet onion, minced
2 cups smoked chicken, cubed
2 cups smoked grilled steak, cubed
1 pound pizza dough
Olive oil


Directions: Pizza
Cut the chicken & steak into bite size cubes and put into bowls, adding your BBQ sauce to the chicken and the steak sauce to the steak and mix well.
Mince the onion and garlic place into a dish.
Put you pizza sauces into dishes so when the time comes you can easily build your pizzas.
Don’t forget the cheese. I just took it from the bag.
Divide the dough into four balls and let rise. Roll your dough out to about 8 inches and when you place it on the grill brush both sides with olive oil.
You want your grill between 350 – 400 , close the lid and let the hickory do its thing, watching to be sure you have no flare- ups.
When the bottom side is done, flip the crust over and add your topping. When the bottom of the crust is nice and brown and the cheese is melted it is time to eat.
Note: You don’t need to use dough; there is a lot of bread or even tortillas that will be fun also.
Preparing Grill: Medium- High Direct Heat
Preheat your grill to medium heat (350-400). Add your wet hickory chips to the fire and oil the grill. A cooking spray is easiest for this. (Note: you can add your hickory directly to the grill or you can use foil smoke packets.(Two handfuls wet chips and one dry, fold foil into a packet, poke holes in it with a fork and you’re good to go.)




This is one of our “Love, The Second Time Around” recipes. The thought is we use up our left over’s. But to tell the truth I intentionally made enough steak, chicken and roasted garlic with this pizza in mind. We made a Smoked BBQ Chicken with a white sauce and a Smoked Grilled Steak pizza with a red sauce. Keep in mind that pizza can be anything you can dream of, this is what I dreamed of…

Get your toppings together before going to the grill. You can use anything you want on your pizza, but keep in mind that you are not cooking any meat; you are just melting the cheese and warming up what you put on it. You can see I used a red and white sauce on these. Here I am adding my smoked garlic, next the cheese, meat, and then more cheese.

Remember that a recipe is simply an outline; it is not written in stone. Don’t be afraid to make changes to your taste.
Take it and run with it….
