My husband and his family love everything with BBQ flavor. What I found difficult in the past was that if you use the BBQ sauce to marinade, the wings don't get crispy. If you use the dry rub, as most people do, the flavor just stays on the top layer of the meat, mostly on the skin.
You need to whisk it with extra virgin olive oil. Besides, the oil gives a coating that will make the skin crisp up in the oven later.
You will see that I add a teaspoon of dry rub into the BBQ sauce. Why? Most of the time, you can hardly find a dry rub and BBQ sauce with exact same flavor, even though you may get both from the same brand.
To marry 2 slightly different flavors together, a teaspoon of dry rub will do the trick.
To make these oven baked BBQ wings crispy, the size of a baking sheet is one of the most important factors. It is all about the air movement.
You need to leave 1/4" space around between the wings. If you crowd a baking sheet where the wings tightly pack together, the wings will cook through. But the skin won't get crispy.
You will see many of my recipes apply this same method.
You can even make 2 different flavored wings, such as oven baked Buffalo wings, at the same time in the same oven. Just to make sure to separate them into different baking sheets.
Of course, if you prefer to double the quantity of the same flavored wings, please feel free to do so. Bear in mind that you will need to separate the wings into 2 equal batches and bake them in 2 baking sheets of the same size.
Pop the frozen pizza into the oven while you are baking the wings at the last 20 minutes. After taking the wings out to rest, you can continue to cook the pizza if it is not done enough for you. But most of the time, everything is done at the same time and rest together before serving.
For the ovens nowadays, it should not affect your cooking time even if you add the frozen pizza into the oven in the middle of cooking of the wings. If it does, add 5 minutes for every increment.
Yes, you definitely can. Apply the methods and instructions by referring to the recipe of Buffalo Chicken Drumsticks. Depending on how much meat you will cook, you may need to double the amount of seasonings and/or dressings.
2.5 pounds Frozen wings (thawed; padded dry)
2 tablespoons BBQ dry rub of your choice (My family loves the coffee rub)

Salt and pepper to taste
