BBQ That Food Truck in, “That Recipe for BBQ Chicken Pizza.”
July 22, 2021 / Comments
Most everyone in the world has tried some kind of barbeque. It’s a treat and staple, though it’s sometimes overlooked. But barbeque is my fantasy. Hi, I’m Bobby Wagner, and I’m makin’ it my mission to BBQ That! And when I say “that,” I mean everything. Now, while I could always stick to BBQing normal foods, I’d rather do things a little bit different. I’ve always thought good BBQ can take you to another place; which is why I built BBQ That Food Truck. I’ll be usin’ it to tour the country, and BBQ anything and everything I can. This truck is gonna help me bring the magic of BBQ all over. It's kinda magical.
For instance, the darndest thing happened the other day. I left a brand new apron in the truck overnight, and when I grabbed it the next morning, it had my face on it, and it was talkin’! We’ve struck up a partnership of sorts; I know BBQ, he knows local recipes ripe for the BBQing.
“Yeah, he also has arms and a body, so I’ll let him handle the cookin’. He’s the master of BBQing Bobby’s Way, anyway.”
Today, we’re gonna start right here, in my own kitchen, so I can walk you through my recipe for BBQ Chicken Pizza. Or as I like to call it, “BBQ That Chicken Pizza.” Now, first thing’s first; get yourself a nice, premade pizza crust. Grocery stores nowadays stock crusts in all kinds of styles, so you’re gonna find one you like. Personally, I like thinner crusts on my pizza. Next, you’ll want to put down a layer of sour cream. I know, I know, a bit weird, but trust me, you won’t even taste it once the pizza’s cooked, and it adds just an amazing creamy texture to the finished product. After that, you’re gonna want to get some red potatoes, wash ‘em, boil ‘em and either mash or chunk ‘em up, since like the sour cream, the potato is there for texture and creaminess, not really flavor. Put those taters on top of the sour cream, smooth it all out, then top everything off with some cheese, chicken, (it don’t matter too much what kind you put on), and whatever else you’re feeling. Then, drizzle over your Redneck Lipstick BBQ sauce. Chuck it in a 350 degree oven for 5-10 minutes, until the edges start gettin’ a little brown and crispy. Once it gets there, turn the oven off, and turn on your broiler to really get everything nice and bubbly. Take it out after a minute or two, then let the whole schebang rest for five before diggin’ in. And there you have it: BBQ That Chicken Pizza.
That’s gonna be all for now; let us know in the comments below where you’d like to see the truck head to next, and how you’d complete the sentence, “BBQ That ______.”

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Get out that pizza crust, then add a few dollops of sour cream, smooth to the edges. Add peeled and boiled mashed or chunked potatoes to the edges.
