We do understand you may sit there wondering where on earth you begin when it comes to a smoker pizza recipe, and that’s perfectly fine.
The smoker has the ability to add a different taste to your pizza, and there are very few limitations to what you can cook in it. If you have never considered using your smoker to make a pizza, then can we let you know that you miss out on an amazing experience.
So, what we plan on doing here is providing you with just nine different recipes that we think can make a difference. Our intention is to just open your eyes to what is possible when it comes to making a pizza in your smoker.
After that, it’s all up to you to use whichever combination of ingredients you like to get an amazing pizza. So, let’s get on with the recipes and get your mouth watering at the possibilities.
Cheesy Smoked Pizza Recipe
We will start things off with a nice and simple option, and that’s a cheese pizza. However, don’t think that this will taste the same as any other cheese pizza. That’s not the case.
Instead, what you end up getting is a cheese pizza with a distinct smoked flavor to it. If you have never experienced this before, then this could very well be the recipe that changes that.
We suggest keeping it quite plain with a tomato base, a couple of different cheese options sprinkled over the top, and then putting it in your smoker. It takes just minutes before everything is cooked to perfection, and you can then enjoy the taste explosion that’s about to happen.
Italian Sausage and Bacon Smoked Pizza Recipe
This recipe calls for Italian sausage and bacon, so you will already know just how amazing this will taste when it’s put into your smoker. There’s no doubt that the smoker will enhance the flavors, and this recipe could very well blow your mind.
In this instance, it calls for a thin base, and you do need that tomato pizza sauce as the foundation. Then, add chopped onion, sausage, bacon and lots of cheese to round it all off. Then, it’s time to throw it into your smoker.
As it’s a thin base, it won’t take too long for this pizza to cook. That means you can have dinner on the table in next to no time. Also, you don’t really need to pre-cook the sausage or bacon as the smoker should do that for you.
Sausage and Cheese Smoked Pizza Recipe
This smoker pizza recipe is another one you can cook in next to no time. Its main focus is on sausage and cheese, and lots of both need to appear on this base to make it as amazing as you would hope for.
For this, all you need to do is to cut up the sausage, and you may want to fry it if you feel this has to be done. Then, spread your tomato base, add in lots of sausages, and then go crazy with the cheese. We recommend cheddar and Mozzarella to give it a full-on taste.
After that, you just need to throw it in the smoker, and you will then have a wonderful pizza ready to eat in no time at all.
Ricotta and Mushroom Smoked Pizza Recipe
This recipe changes things around a bit as the main focus is on using ricotta as your cheese, and also adding in a number of mushrooms. However, you can see how it also includes pepperoni in this recipe, but you can add whatever you want.
Of course, you do not have to just stop with ricotta if you love cheese. However, we would not recommend going over the top with other options. It will just take some of the flavors and taste away from the pizza.
But do be generous with every other topping. Then, when you have added everything you like, just throw the pizza into your smoker and sit back and wait for it. Believe us when we say it’s well worth having some patience for this pizza to emerge.
BBQ Chicken Smoked Pizza
With this recipe, you are adding some BBQ sauce along with chicken before throwing it all in your smoker. Now, you just know how good this particular pizza will taste thanks to that combination of flavors.
Of course, you also need to add a stack of cheese to the mix, and if you feel like adding in some extra veggies at the same time, then go for it.
But the key is the BBQ sauce on the base instead of the usual tomato pizza sauce base. It just takes things to a whole new level when you use BBQ sauce in this recipe.
Once you have the pizza loaded, simply throw it in your smoker and wait for that combination of flavors to work together. In just minutes, you will have one of the tastiest pizzas you have ever experienced in your life.
Pepperoni and Sausage Smoked Pizza
So this pizza manages to combine two tasty ingredients into the one smoked pizza, and this is going to taste so different to how you expect. The smoker changes everything when you add these ingredients into the mix, and we can assure you that it will taste mind-blowing.
Of course, you do not have to just stick to the combination of both pepperoni and sausage. Instead, throw on some peppers and chilies if you want to add a bit of spice to the mix.
But you do need to finish everything off with some cheese. Actually, with lots of cheese, and more than one type as well. We are talking about Mozzarella and cheddar as an absolute minimum, and it will all be worth it in the end.
When you feel the toppings cover the entire pizza, then just throw it in the smoker and let it work its magic on your pizza.
Broccoli and Brie Smoked Pizza
Now, we do admit that this recipe is different from what you would expect on a pizza, but it just shows how almost anything is possible as a pizza topping. In this instance, we combine broccoli and brie, and it does deliver some surprising results.
Using brie on a pizza is not always the first choice people make, and yet it melts down well and adds a different flavor to the entire dish. Broccoli is also not common as a vegetable on pizza, but we are not talking about huge chunks of it either.
This pizza is best when you use more of a white sauce on the base in order to get everything working together with the brie. Too much of a tomato-based sauce on the base will not have the same impact as you would hope to get.
Redneck Style Smoked Pizza
So this pizza actually shows what you can do with a pizza out of Walmart. Unwrap, and simply throw it in the smoker, and you may end up actually enjoying the end results.
Now, this version does end up having some beer poured over it, but then that’s entirely optional for you to try out.
However, the main reason why we have included this is to show that anything is possible when it comes to using your smoker to make a pizza.
Finally, we round things off with the absolute classic Margherita pizza, but with the smoker, twist added to it. With marinara sauce, lumps of cheese, and some fresh basil on top, there is no reason not to love this particular pizza.
You can even make your own dough to then create the base, or a store-bought version will also work fine. The key, as always, is to make sure you have ample sauce on the base, and if you want to add in some cut tomatoes as well, then go for it.
When ready, add it to your smoker, and wait just a matter of minutes to then have dinner on the table. It really is that easy.
And those are our nine different recipes, and they should provide you with a sense of what is possible when it comes to using a smoker for cooking a pizza. Keep in mind that this method of cooking will change the taste of things, but it’s all worth it in the end.
A smoker is just not used as often as it should be, and making a pizza is a prime example of this. You don’t even need to always have meat included in this either. Just smoking the cheese that appears on your pizza can have a huge impact on the end result.
All you need to do is to give it a try. You may surprise yourself with the end results.
