Ingredients
  • 1 fresh pizza dough, store-bought or homemade
  • 2 cups (180g) shredded chorizo goat’s cheese
  • 1½ cup (90 45) shredded mozzarella
  • ½ cup (45g) shredded Monterey jack cheese
  • 3 tbsp. (44 ml) cream
  • 4 tbsp. (59 ml) tomato pizza sauce
  • Fresh herbs
  • Cornmeal
Directions
  1. Place your pizza stone onto the barbecue and turn on all of the burners to medium-high. Preheat the grill to around 500°F (260°C).
  2. While the barbecue is preheating, shred the cheeses and make the queso. In a small saucepan, add half of the shredded chorizo goat’s cheese and 3 tbsp. of cream. Warm over low heat until completely melted, then stir in the tomato pizza sauce.
  3. Divide the pizza dough in half. On a floured surface, place half of the dough down and about a quarter of the shredded mozzarella on top. Fold it into the dough and then roll the dough out.
  4. Sprinkle a pizza spatula with cornmeal and place the rolled-out dough on top, ensuring that it doesn’t stick by adding cornmeal underneath as needed.
  5. Spread a layer of the chorizo-queso sauce onto the dough, leaving at least half an inch around for the crust.
  6. Sprinkle the pizza stone with cornmeal and slide the pizza onto the preheated stone. Sprinkle with cheese (saving some for the second pizza) and bake until the crust is golden and the cheese is melted and bubbly 5 to 15 minutes. When you close the grill to cook, feel free to turn down or off the two burners below the pizza stone depending on how hot your barbecue is. Optionally, brush the crust with garlic butter.
  7. Remove the finished pizza from the barbecue using the pizza spatula and slice it on a cutting board. Top with fresh herbs and freshly grated parmesan as desired.
  8. Repeat steps 1 through 7 for the second half of the dough.

This Cheese Stuffed Cheese Pizza on the BBQ Recipe is absolutely delightful. Feel free to substitute your favorite cheese in for the chorizo goat’s cheese, but the subtle smoky meat flavor was stunning.
