Homemade Spicy Barbecue Sauce

Print this entry

BBQ-Sauce-Bowl-webI love this simple and easy to make BBQ Sauce recipe. I use it on not just ribs but on whole chicken when I roast, meats going on the BBQ and on sausages to glaze when they are just about done.

Makes 2 cups 


3 tablespoons olive oil

2 medium cloves garlic, minced

1 cup Gluten-free tomato sauce (ketchup)

1/4 cup water

1/4 cup apple cider or red wine vinegar

1/4 cup molasses

2 tablespoons sweet paprika

1 tablespoon chili powder

1 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1/2 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest 


Heat the oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook, stirring, until lightly browned. Stir in the tomato sauce (ketchup), water, vinegar, molasses, paprika, chili powder, cayenne pepper and lemon zest. 

Reduce the heat to medium-low and cook for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Print this entry


This is a very tasty pizza to make and great for a snack or make a few of them as a starter if you are having a people round.
BBQ Chicken Pieces
250 gm boneless/skinless chicken breasts, cut into 15mm cubes
3 Tbs. olive oil
125ml Wild Appetite Cajun spiced BBQ sauce (Gluten & Dairy free)
For the Pizza:
1 Venerdi Gluten free Thin Crust Pizza Base
1/2 cup Wild Appetite Cajun spiced BBQ sauce (a spicy−sweet sauce works best)
2 tbs. shredded smoked cheese
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 small red onion, sliced into 3-4mm wide pieces
2 tbs. chopped fresh chopped fresh coriander
To make BBQ Chicken:
In a large frying pan, cook the chicken in olive oil over medium−high heat until just cooked, 5-6 minutes. Do not overcook.
Set aside in the refrigerator until chilled through. Once chilled place the cooked chicken in a zip-lock bag and add 125ml Wild Appetite Cajun spiced BBQ sauce, 3 tbs. olive oil, seal the bag and shake to coat the chicken evenly. Remove the chicken with tongs and reserve the sauce.
To make the pizza:
Pre-heat the oven to 220 degrees C.
Use a large spoon to spread BBQ sauce from the bag evenly over the surface of the Venerdi Pizza base within the rim. Sprinkle smoked cheese over the sauce. Cover with 3/4 cup shredded mozzarella.
Distribute the chicken pieces evenly over the cheese. Place the pieces of red onion over the surface. Sprinkle an additional 1/4 cup mozzarella over the top of the pizza.
Transfer the pizza to the oven; bake until the crust is crisp and golden and the cheese at the center is bubbly, 8 to 10 minutes.
When the pizza is cooked, carefully remove it from the oven; sprinkle 2 tbs. chopped fresh chopped fresh coriander over the hot pizza. Slice and serve.
