Game Meat Monday: BBQ Pheasant Pizza

This is a very flexible recipe that I thought I’d put in as a bit of inspiration to get the youngsters involved with game preparation and cooking as every kid loves pizza. 

Beaters days are looming and I thought it would be a great simple idea as I don’t know a youngster that doesn’t love pizza. Bringing together the wonderful game meat and the future generations of the sport is something we all have to do.

 

Ingredients

  • 1 pheasant breast
  • 1 pre made pizza base 9”
  • 2 rashers of streaky bacon
  • 1/4 red onion
  • 1/4 red pepper
  • 250g cheese 50/50 cheddar and mozzarella
  • 4 tbsp of your favourite BBQ sauce

 

Method

  • Start by pre heating your oven
  • I seared the pheasant breast in a hot pan for a hot pan for 2-3 mins each side.
  • Remove from the pan and slice (this will still be raw in the middle but will finish cooking in the oven) add to a bowl with 2 tbsp of BBQ sauce.
  • Use the same pan to cook the bacon, once cooked put into a bowl.
  • Spread the remaining 2tbsp of BBQ sauce on the base of the pizza.
  • Sprinkle on 1/2 of the cheese, the red onion, red pepper, bacon and then the sliced pheasant, top with the remaining cheese.
  • Optional extra is to add a few small drops of BBQ sauce on top for extra flavour and juiciness.
  • Cook in a hot oven till the crust is bubbly and lightly charred usually 15-20 minutes.
