Feeding 12 tonight!

I don’t write about food.   I’m definitely not a food blogger by any means but once in a while I post yummy meals that my kids love on Facebook and people are always asking for recipes.

BBQ chicken pizza is our kids favourite.   As I made it tonight I knew that this is one of those meals people are going to ask for the recipe so I took some photos as I went along.

Keep in mind I cook for 10 people every day.   Tonight I cooked for 12 as we had two guests.   The pizza dough recipe makes two pizzas so just wrap one in plastic and put in the fridge and use within a day or two.  Another option is to freeze it for up to 3 months.   Or you could make both and then you have a second pizza for leftovers for lunch.

When making meals for so many, I always try to offer at least 3 or 4 options.   You don’t have to cook 8 pizzas (though you could if you run the dough recipe through every hour for 4 hours!).   You can just add extra options.   Tonight we had, 2 BBQ chicken pizzas, 1 tray of garlic bread with cheese, raw veggies and 2 heads of Romain lettuce that I turned into Caesar salad and one apple, pecan, poppy seed salad.

First I took 3 chicken breasts and put them in my Instant Pot with seasoning and 1 c. soup stock and pressure cooked for 16min.   The Instant Pot doesn’t add any heat and since it’s a heat wave right now that makes me happy.   IMG_5818[1]

 

Next I put the following ingredients into the bread machine:

1 + ½ cups of water

1 + ½ Tablespoons of olive or avocado oil

3 + ¾ cups of bread flour (you can use regular but it won’t stretch as much)

2    Tablespoons of sugar or honey

1 + ½  teaspoons of salt

1 tsp. oregano

1 tsp. onion powder

1 + ½ teaspoons active bread yeast

I use the Pizza Dough setting which takes 55 minutes in my bread machine.   While the bread machine is making the dough, I cut the veggies and put together the Caesar and pecan salads.  When it’s done I spin that dough like a pro and throw it onto two greased pizza pans.

You could make regular pizza at this point but if you really want to impress, switch out your boring tomato sauce for Diana BBQ Sauce instead.   Any flavour of BBQ sauce will do but I think a plain one over a hickory or smokey flavour is best.

Next top with Feta cheese.  I use goat feta but you can use cow feta too.

Add the cooked chicken shredded from your Instant Pot.   Also add chopped red onions.   At this point you can also add anything else that floats your boat.   We’ve tried bacon, peppers, spinach, pepperettes, pineapple and mushrooms.   All of them were great additions to the basic BBQ chicken pizza.

Grate some mozzarella or whatever you like and voila!   Easy.   And the machines do most of the work.   That’s my favourite part!

I baked them in the oven at 375 for about 15 minutes.   While I did that I made the garlic bread.

This meal is definitely not one I make every week but when I do everyone is so happy and there’s never any left.
