BBQ Bacon Mango Pizza #FreshTastyValentines

by Erin

If BBQ pizza and Hawaiian pizza got together and had a baby, this would be the result. Tangerine hatch chile BBQ sauce topped with bacon, mango, red onion, and mozzarella.

BBQ Bacon Mango Pizza 1
While pizza may not normally be the first thing you think of when it comes to Valentine’s Day, it can be a fun meal to make together at home. I took my trusty pizza dough recipe which normally make ones large or two medium pizzas and instead divided it in fourths to make 4 personal sized pizzas. You could then set up an assembly line, customizing your very own pizza and get experimental with things such as this BBQ bacon and mango pizza.

The BBQ sauce that I made for this pizza incorporates Not Ketchup’s tangerine hatch chile sauce so it had a very different flavor than your traditional BBQ sauce. I did feel slightly sacrilege for adding sugar as it has no added sugars, sweetened only by the fruit itself, but the end result paired so well with the mango, bacon, and red onion that I didn’t feel too guilty.

BBQ Bacon Mango Pizza 4

Three years ago: Apple Maple Turkey Sliders

Four years ago: Superbowl XLVI Recipe Roundup

Five years ago: Cream Cheese Spritz Cookies


Serves 4



1/2 cup ketchup (I used Not Ketchup tangerine hatch chile)

2 Tbsp brown sugar

1 Tbsp mustard

1 tsp Worcestershire sauce

Pinch onion powder

1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (optional)


1 recipe pizza dough, risen

1/2 red onion, thinly sliced

1 mango, chopped

4 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled

1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Chopped cilantro (I used Gourmet Garden lightly dried cilantro)


  1. Place pizza stone* in the lower third of the oven and allow to preheat to 400 degrees for at least 10 minutes.
  2. To prepare the sauce, in a small bowl whisk together all ingredients. Set aside.
  3. Roll out pizza dough (I formed 4 personal sized ones) and transfer to a pizza peel sprinkled with cornmeal*. Spread sauce over the dough, leaving an edge for the crust. Scatter most of the bacon, mango, and onion over the sauce. Top with the shredded cheese. Scatter the remaining bacon, mango, and onion on top and sprinkle with cilantro.
  4. Transfer to the pizza stone in the oven (it’ll take a couple light shakes) and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until it the crust turns golden and the cheese starts to bubble.

* If you don’t have a pizza stone, you can assemble and bake on a regular pan.

I LOVE this. You had me at ”bacon” and “pizza” then you added “mango.” Wonderful flavors. And that cutter is adorable.
