Country Fried Venison and Collard Green French Bread Pizzas

You’re definitely gonna know that I’m Southern based on this recipe.
Venison and Collard Green Pizza It’s pizza. But not just any pizza – Southern french bread pizzas.

Venison with collard greens and mozzarella and provolone on homemade french bread. I mean, who the hell puts collard greens on a pizza?

A Southern woman does. 

Don’t get me wrong – I do NOT hunt, but I’ve recently become very good friends with a girl that does. And her venison is THE SHIT. Seriously, I’ve never had any that is tender like hers. She must kill them in a really sweet way or something. Maybe she sings them to sleep first…Hell, I don’t know. I know absolutely nothing about that whole being-in-the-woods-and-killing-animals thing. Nor will I ever. Just so we’re abundantly clear on that.
Venison Pizza I do eat them. Now, it may seem as if I made this a little complicated because I fried the venison bites. BUT it’s worth it, and not really difficult, so just trust me on this.

Think of it as a plate of country fried steak and collard greens  – but in pizza form.

So, back to the whole homemade french bread thing, it’s not hard at all! You basically put a yeast/water mixture in a stand mixer bowl with sugar, salt, oil and flour and mix, cover and let it rise for an hour or two, shape it into two loaves and bake.

Country Fried Venison and Collard Green Pizza on Homemade French Bread

Ingredients

  • This French Bread recipe, halved (or store bought french bread sliced in half)
  • 1 lb venison stew meat, cut into small cubes
  • All purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp seasoned salt (like Lawry's)
  • 1 egg, whisked
  • 3 cups canola oil
  • 2 cups marinara sauce
  • Collard greens, cooked (I cooked a bag of fresh greens in my slow cooker for a few hours, but you could use canned)
  • 2 cups Mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup Provolone cheese

Instructions

  • Make the bread, cover and set aside.
  • Combine flour and salt in a large mixing bowl.
  • Dip venison cubes in egg, then in flour mixture. (I do this twice to get a nice heavy coating).
  • Heat oil to 375 degrees and fry venison pieces about 1 minute per side, until done.
  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  • Assemble pizza by spreading marinara sauce on bottom of the french bread halves, cheeses, venison and collard greens. Top with more cheese and bake for 8-10 minutes.
