Is BBQ Sauce Good on Pizza?
You betcha. In fact, whoever decided to try this experiment and put BBQ sauce on a pizza is a downright genius. It’s so versatile and can fit any flavor profile you’d like. BBQ sauces can range from sweet, to salty, to smoky or spicy.
Whatever note you’re trying to hit, you bet there is an option that will satisfy your needs. in this recipe, we make our own BBQ sauce, but feel free to take some shortcuts and buy one, like Sweet Baby Ray’s, our favorite.
To top things off, this recipe combines the sweet, caramelized onions and slightly crispy peppers on the pizza. As the finishing touch, the whole pie is garnished with freshly pickled jalapenos. With vegetarian pizza toppings like these, who needs a burger?
