Autumn’s cool days and crisp weather call for a celebration with family and friends. It is the best time to gather around an outdoor heater and enjoy a delicious barbeque dinner with guests. Although there is no limit to the food options available, pizzas are always a good idea.
Show off what your outdoor wood-fired pizza oven can do with the below mouth-watering recipes/meals you can easily put together.
4 Pizza Oven and BBQ Recipes for Autumn
Below are four simple barbeque recipes for the ultimate Aussie autumn backyard party with friends.
1. Sweet potato wedges and lamb
Prepare a lamb marinade using vinegar, bay leaves, garlic, chilli, black pepper, oil, and salt. Gently coat the lamb, season it, and grill it in the barbeque oven for about 30 minutes. Similarly, place slices of sweet potatoes on a baking sheet, season properly, and add oil. Cook in the pizza oven for 20 minutes or until they are crisp.
2. Barbeque pineapple slices
A sweet dessert recipe for your autumn barbeque guests. Toast peppercorns, cinnamon, and cloves over a grill fire until fragrant and crush them. Add butter to the powder and spread it on pineapple slices on skewers. Grill them in your barbeque oven for 10 minutes until they are nicely charred. To sweeten the pineapple slices, make a chocolate dip on the side by melting dark chocolate in a bowl.
3. Corn and spicy barbeque chicken
Make a spice rub of choice, marinate your chicken pieces, and sprinkle some olive oil. Place the chicken and corn in your barbeque oven for 20 minutes. Turn the corn until all the sides have an even char. Do the same for the chicken and serve with a drizzle of lime and vegetables.
4. Barbeque pizza with own toppings
Prepare a variety of barbeque pizza toppings, such as prawns, chicken breasts, toasted asparagus, and fruits. Once you grill the toppings, allow your guests to choose what they each want on their mini pizzas and cook them in the pizza oven.
Tips for An Awesome Autumn Backyard Party
· Make use of your outdoor heater
The weather may get chillier than usual, so keep your friends warm by having them gather around your outdoor heater. Alternatively, they can sit close to your alfresco pizza oven to keep the conversation flowing as you grill.
· Use the readily available fall produce
To stay in tune with the season, curate your menu around common fall produce such as sweet potatoes and pumpkin. However, it is a barbeque party, so switch it up by grilling them and adding a few spices for an extra kick.
· Grill a variety of foods
Besides meat, you can grill vegetables and try something new for your autumn backyard party. Surprise your guests by using fruit toppings on your pizzas.
Autumn may not be your typical barbeque season, but it is arguably the best time for outdoor parties. Do not let your backyard gather dust now that summer is over. Your guests will love the fun menu you can prepare from your BBQ and pizza oven.
