Pizza ~ my favorite homemade BBQ Pizza Sauce recipe!

Pizza for lunch today ~ we actually made 2 different kinds but I have to share the bbq pizza sauce.  The crust was homemade – used our simple baguette recipe; it came out nice and crispy ~ just the way we wanted.  I like to top my BBQ Pizza with chicken and pineapple; today I added bacon too.   Like I always tell my dog, ” The only thing better than bacon is …. more bacon!”

BBQ Pizza Sauce

  • 1/4 cup Diced Onion
  • 2 cloves Garlic – minced
  • 1 Jalapeno Pepper
  • 1 1/2 Tbs Butter
  • 1/8 c White Vinegar
  • 1/8 c Brown Sugar
  • 1 tsp Whole Corriander – crushed
  • 1/4 tsp thyme
  • 1/4 tsp Crushed Red Pepper
  • 1/8 tsp Celery Seed
  • 1/4 tsp Black Pepper
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 c Ketchup
  • 2 Tbs Pineapple Juice ~ I got this from the can of Pineapple Chunks I opened for the toppings

Saute onion, garlic and jalapeno over medium heat until desired doneness ~ we got ours a little toasty before adding rest of ingredients.  Add remaining ingredients and heat through.  Simmer for 20-30 minutes to combine flavors.  Adjust the heat to your liking ~ this was spicy – seed the jalapenos and omit the crushed red if you prefer a milder version.  This made enough sauce for 1 pizza ~ leaving a little left over to coat cooked chicken pieces.

We’ve found through trial and error that our pizzas come out the best if you prebake the crust part way before topping.  We baked our crust at 425 degrees for 10 minutes before building.  Adjust the time and temperature according to the type of crust you are making.  After adding sauce, cooked chicken, pineapple, crispy bacon, mozzarella and parmesan cheese we baked an additional 12 minutes to finish crust and heat toppings through.

I’ll post the crust recipe and our traditional sauce recipe soon.  Hope you enjoy the BBQ Pizza Sauce recipe  ~ Kimberly
