Recipe Notes

Homemade BBQ Sauce Recipe

*You may need to grease your skillet but if it is well seasoned it should have a fair amount of non-stick to it!
**You can also check for doneness by pressing the centre of the pizza, it should bounce back to it’s form.
This pizza should actually be enough to serve 2-3 people depending on how you slice it. As it is a deep dish pizza it is quite filling.
