Pendleton BBQ Pizza w/Chicken and Jalapeño
July 15, 2015 – 12:39 pm | No Comment

Oregon Growers is back in the kitchen and we believe that cooking doesn’t need to be complicated and some of the best recipes have very few ingredients. But, we also know making good food doesn’t need to take all day! We looked in our cupboards and saw Pendleton BBQ Sauce and a pizza crust mix and this is what we created. Not many people have all day to make everything from scratch(we know we don’t!). In this recipe, we used Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Pizza Crust mix. It will be about an hour until your teeth will sink into this mouthwatering pizza. After we finished making the recipe, we had a brilliant idea to add some of our Northwest Peach Jam to the BBQ sauce and grilled peaches over the top. Pulled pork would also go swimmingly with this recipe(and we LOVE pork!). So, if you want to be a little more gourmet, try adding these ingredients to the recipe as well! We believe this recipe will make any hungry belly happy. Let us know what you think!
