Before you start getting your pizza ready, start heating your oven with some wood pellets or chips. We used oak for this cook due to its subtle flavor that won’t overpower the ingredients, but feel free to play around and find a wood that you like!
You’ll want your pizza oven to reach about 900 degrees before your put your pizza in. With an Uuni, it’ll take about 15-20 minutes, but your oven may take more or less.
While the oven is heating, start preparing your pizza.
Coat your pizza paddle or a metal sheet with corn meal, then lay your crust out on top of it.
Add a thin layer of The Topper to the crust, using the back side of a spoon to spread it evenly. Sprinkle as much or as little of the rub over the sauce as you prefer.
Break up your leftover BBQ into bite-size chunks, then scatter the meat, onion, and peppers across the crust.
Top it all off with your cheese. If you’re using fresh mozzarella, you may want to break it up into smaller pieces first and remember, a little cheese can go a long way with pizza.
Once your pizza is all put together and your oven’s up to temperature, carefully scatter some corn meal across the stone inside your oven. Slide the pizza off of your tray or paddle and onto the pizza stone.
Cook for about 3-5 minutes total, carefully rotating it 180 degrees half way through.
Cut it up however you like and enjoy!
