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
