Quick & Easy Smoky Brisket Pizza

Updated: Dec 18, 2019

Pizza is fun to make, quick to prepare, and when combined with brisket and the right ingredients, you end up with smoky-tangy goodness. I cheated a bit today and relied on a good deal of store-bought ingredients to allow for a quick meal. Sooner than later, I will post a recipe for pizza made from scratch, but for now, here's the recipe for a quick weekday meal.





  • 1 store bought pizza dough or crust (I used H-E-B Traditional Thin and Crispy 12 Inch Pizza Crusts®)

  • 1/2 cup pizza sauce (I used Del Grosso Pappy Fred's Old Style Pizza Sauce®)

  • 1/2 cup Sweet Baby Ray's Barbecue Sauce

  • 1/2 red onion, sliced

  • 1/2-1 cup leftover brisket

  • 1 handful cherry tomatoes, halved (Roma work great too)

  • 3 slices mozzarella cheese or 1 handful shredded

  • 1/2 cup smoked cheddar cheese, shredded

  • optional: pickled jalapeños

  • 1/2 teaspoon Maldon or freshly ground Himalayan salt


  • Follow the instructions on the package for the dough or crust and preheat the oven.

  • In a bowl, mix together the BBQ and pizza sauce.

  • Generously spread your desired amount of pizza sauce onto the crust. Top with smoked cheddar cheese (don't skimp on this cheese as it gives the pizza a rich smoky flavor), mozzarella, red onion, brisket, cherry tomatoes, and pickled jalapeños.

  • Place in oven for directed cooking time, until sides are crisp and cheese is melted.

  • Let rest for 5 minutes before serving. Top with a pinch of finishing salt and serve.
