Servings 2 people


  • Outdoor Pizza Oven, Pizza Steel, or Stone (if using a home oven)
  • Smoker and Grill (if cooking the brisket yourself)
  • 1 Pizza Peel
  • 1 sauce ladle
  • 1 wooden chopping board or peel for prep and serving


  • 1 pizza dough ball
  • 1 ladle of pizza sauce
  • Low moisture mozzarella cheese
  • Grana padano cheese
  • Balsamic glaze
  • Beer pickles
  • Chilli flakes
  • Beef brisket
  • BBQ rub of choice


  • Prepare Dough: Follow any of our dough recipes. You will need to prepare the dough at least 24 hours ahead of time.
  • Prepare Sauce: We recommend our standard pizza sauce which is versatile, simple to make and is perfect for Neapolitan style pizzas. Spice up this sauce however you like, remember the best part about making pizza is the creative process!
  • Prepare Cheese: Tear the low moisture mozzarella chees into medium-sized pieces. Finely grate grana padano. Set aside.
  • Prepare Brisket: If you're making your own brisket, we recommend seasoning liberally with your BBQ rub of choice and following this recipe as closely as you like.
  • Preheat Oven:
    If using an outdoor pizza like an Ooni pizza oven, aim for a temperature of 450-500°C at the center of your pizza stone. Use an infrared thermometer to ensure accuracy. It should take around 25-30 minutes to reach temperature.
    For a home oven, using a pizza steel or stone, place the stone or steel inside the oven and preheat to the highest temperature for at least 30 minutes.
  • Prepare Base: On a lightly floured surface, stretch out the dough by hand according to the steps outlined in our dough recipe. Once you're happy with the shape of the base, lightly dust your pizza peel and transfer the dough onto the peel.
  • Assemble Pizza: To begin assembling your pizza, start by spreading a ladle of sauce in a circular motion, starting from the center of the dough and working your way outwards. Distribute mozaarella lightly and evenly across the base of your pizza, making sure to leave a few centimeters between each piece. Next, generously sprinkle a couple of handfuls of grated grana padano cheese.
  • Bake Your Pizza:
    If you're using an outdoor pizza oven, launch the pizza into the oven and bake for 60-90 seconds. Keep an eye on the pie and rotate every 10-15 seconds to ensure even cooking and to avoid burning.
    For a home oven with a pizza steel or stone, the bake time should be around 7-10 minutes.
  • Post Bake Toppings: Now it's time for the post-bake toppings. Add beef brisket (be sure not to overload it), beer pickles, one more sprinkle of grana padano, drizzle of balsamic glaze, and lastly a sprinkle of chilli flakes.
  • Serving: Once done, remove the pizza from the oven and place it on a serving board. Now it's time to enjoy your brisket and beer pickles pizza!
