The flavors of BBQ have infiltrated menu items not normally associated with the cooking style. Pizza topped with barbequed chicken is a customer favorite in several casual chains. Chef McLester adds a good helping of Tabasco sweet and spicy pepper sauce to the topping ingredients for extra zing.

1 tsp. minced ginger
1/2 cup favorite BBQ sauce
1/4 cup teriyaki basting sauce
3 tbsp. sweet & spicy pepper sauce
2 tbsp. orange juice
2 tbsp. soy sauce
1 tbsp. lime juice
1 tsp. honey
8 oz. chicken breast, sliced into strips
2 tbsp. peanut oil
12 oz. prepared pizza dough
2 tbsp. cornmeal
2 cups shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup broccoli, small florets, blanched in salted water
1/4 cup red bell pepper strips
1/4 cup purple cabbage, cut into thin ribbons
2 tbsp. chopped scallions

As plans to increase the minimum wage surge ahead in states such as New York and California, operators eventually will feel the reverberations shake up labor costs for more than just hourly workers. As associate wages gain on manager salaries, operators will have to answer a call for reciprocal increases. FSD spoke with operators who advised going gently into the brave new world of heightened labor costs, investing in talent and making cuts elsewhere; however, they did offer three perfectly proactive tactics to make the process as seamless as possible.
