    Last night was pizza night.

    I'd decided to be lazy and use the store bought "pizza dough in a bag" that my local grocery store always has. Unless I'm looking for it, then they're miraculously sold out. My wife said to just get Pillsbury pizza dough, which made my soul ache a little, but luckily they were sold out of that too.

    So I informed the aforementioned wife that dinner would be pushed back an hour or so and whipped up a batch of my quick and easy pizza dough. It's basically Amish white bread with a little extra olive oil and a little less sugar. It makes for a pretty soft dough, but I kinda like it. It's similar to Domino's crust. Ok, you pizza snobs out there can cuss me now.

    I'd had an idea to make this pizza a little different.


    I stretched the dough over my favorite pizza pan (the lid to the Imusa 32qt pot with the handle removed) and put little smokies all the way around the perimeter. Then folded the dough over them.


    Then brushed on some BBQ sauce


    Then added some dice smoked thigh meat


    Then some sharp cheddar




    And finally some crispy bacon. Then baked it for 15 minutes at 450°. As you can see, the little smokies were a nice little surprise in the crust.

    I'm gonna call this one a win.

    Honestly chicken pizza isn't my favorite either. But the smokiness of the chicken and the bacon work pretty well.

    Boy, I used to be SUCH a pizza snob, believing only certain items belonged on anything called a pizza.  That's all changed, and man-oh-man MBB, that pizza looks FANTASTIC!  [​IMG][​IMG]

    Thanks!! I used to be the same way, but then I decided it was ok to be a little creative with pizza.
    It's not only tasty, but really satisfying to make it all from scratch. And it's really pretty easy.

    That's not a pizza for those people that eat slices but leave the crust on their plate. 😂👍

    Now that's a great pizza, MD.  I'd eat that any day.  Love the smokies in the crust--even I would eat that crust.
