Ingredients For Brisket
1.5 lbs first cut beef brisket
1 sweet onion, chopped
1 small bunch fresh thyme leaves
2 tsp garlic
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp chopped dried oregano
1 tsp salt
1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
2 tsp tomato paste
1 oz molasses
1 Beer (IPA recommended)
1 tsp olive oil*
INSTRUCTIONS FOR BRISKET
Place beef in a large rectangular dish or bowl.
Mix all the spices together.
Rub the brisket with the spice mixture on all sides.
Cover and refrigerate for 12-24 hours.
Preheat oven or grill to 500˚F.
Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once hot, remove the brisket from the bowl and add to the pan. Sear on all sides, about 3-4 minutes per side, until browned.
Transfer to a large rectangular baking pan.
Gently mix beer, tomato paste, and molasses together and pour into the pan with the brisket.
Cover and roast for about 90 mins. The meat should have an internal temperature of at least 180˚F, as indicated by a meat thermometer. Remove from the oven and let stand until cool enough to shred. Shred carefully and let sit in its juices from the baking pan until the pizza is ready.
3 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp active dry yeast
2 tsp salt
1 cup room temp water
2 oz olive oil*
1 cup cheese (shredded, sliced or diced - chef’s choice)
1 cup pizza sauce
2 oz grated parmesan cheese
INSTRUCTIONS FOR PIZZA
Quick pizza dough:
Add yeast to water and let the yeast bloom for 3 mins.
Sift salt into the flour.
Start mixing flour and water together. Once the dough starts coming together, add the oil*.
Mix dough for about 5 mins. The dough should be elastic and not too wet. Shape into a ball.
Lightly oil a large bowl and place the dough ball in the bowl.
Cover tightly with plastic. Place in a warm dark spot for 20min to 1hr or until the dough has doubled in size.
Lightly flour a clean surface and turn the dough out onto the surface. Stretch out your dough to fit your baking tray.
Pre-bake the dough with a touch of sauce spread on it for 5 mins.
BBQ Brisket Pizza
Take the partially baked pizza shell and top it with the pizza sauce and cheese, then generously spread the shredded brisket around the pizza. Drizzle some of the juices around the pizza as well. Sprinkle with the parmesan cheese and bake in the 500 ˚F ovens or on the grill with the top closed for 15 min or until the cheese starts to brown.
