This leftover brisket pizza recipe is the perfect way to use your leftover brisket in a new and exciting way! Kick your pizza night up a notch with BBQ sauce, gooey jack cheese and some fresh veggies.
If you’re not a “put any and all the things on my pizza” kind of person, just stay with me a minute because this leftover brisket pizza is delectable.
The best decision I ever made was to buy my husband a smoker for Christmas. I’ve actually gifted him two now — a Weber Smokey Mountain and a Char-Griller Akorn. We love smoking several pounds of juicy, delectable meat on the weekend to use throughout the following workweek. (I really like that he enjoys it and that I can take a day off from cooking, too!)
What I don’t like, though, is eating the same thing over and over. So I plan my weeknight meals around the meat we smoke but make fun and creative dishes with the leftovers. Having the meat pre-cooked saves a ton of time, and that smoked flavor–YUM!
This leftover brisket pizza is so super simple and a yummy, totally different way to use leftover brisket!
I have made this recipe several times, in both a rectangular pan and a round pan, and with cilantro for the garnish and also scallions. The rectangular pan with cilantro is my favorite way. <3
