Remember when I made the german bread to get rid of leftover stout? Well, I didn’t actually use it all up you know. So here is one more stout recipe (the last one, I promise) to get you all ready for St. Patrick’s day.
I love pizza so I thought, why not make a stout pizza? I could use it both on the sauce and on the dough, to match. I don’t love my pizza crust yet, but this one turned out pretty good.
Sauce-wise, I’m pretty sure it’s not technically a BBQ (plus I don’t even like BBQ), but we could say it’s inspired on BBQ sauce, so that’s what I’m calling it. I thought it worked pretty good on this pizza
The rest of the toppings came to me naturally. I mean, beer, cheddar, sausage… they just belong together. I used a bit of mozzarella as well, so that it wasn’t too cheddar-y. Plus the store only had shredded cheddar in a mix with mozzarella (talk about conveniency).
For the sausage part, you can use any kind of sausage that strikes your fancy. I used some chunky sausages which are pretty fatty, so I boiled them first to remove some of the fat.
Anyway, you’ll see the recipe is very easy. Make sure to give it a try if you’re looking for a different pizza!
