Feasty's Hickory Smoked BBQ Chicken Pizza
Cookout Recipe from the Feasty Boys
They've been called the bachelor's answer to Martha Stewart, so who better to share tips on cooking the best barbecue this holiday weekend than the "Feasty Boys?"
Chefs Jon Mayer and Jim Stump, whose cooking show can be seen on ESPN and other cable networks, joined "Good Morning America" with grilling tips and recipes for beer-basted hot dogs, bodacious burgers and hickory smoked pizza.
Feasty Tip: Take advantage of the power of smoke -- there are numerous types of wood chips that you can buy at any grocery or hardware store that, when added to your grill, enhance the flavor of any food.
In a medium sized bowl, soak two cups of hickory chips in tap water for approximately 30 to 45 minutes.
Trim fat from chicken breasts and liberally sprinkle with BBQ spice.
Preheat grill. Once grill is sufficiently preheated, drain water off the hickory chips and drizzle a palm full directly onto grill embers. If using a gas grill, simply place soaked chips in a small aluminum pan placed directly on the grilling grate.
Place chicken breasts on grill and cook, removing once an internal temperature of 160Â° F is achieved. Remove chicken from grill and set aside, allowing to cool for 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, place pizza stone on grill and close lid. (For a more intense hickory flavor, simply add more soaked hickory chips to the grill just prior to placing pizza on stone.)
While chicken cools, chop green onions and tomato.
Liberally slather flatbread/pre-cooked pizza crust with BBQ sauce, starting at the middle and working outwards, careful to avoid the outer crust.
Chop the cooled chicken into bite size pieces, and evenly distribute on top of crust along with green onions and tomato.
Liberally sprinkle with mozzarella and parmesan cheeses.
Place loaded pizza onto the preheated pizza stone and close grill. Remove pizza when cheese is thoroughly melted and bubbly (approximately 5 to 7 minutes.)
Remove pizza from grill and allow to cool for several minutes prior to cutting.
