Grillin’ Up Some Pizzas

Oh summertime! The grill is hot; the drinks are cold. But sometimes we need some other options of the same old, same old. The obligatory hot dogs, kabobs, burgers can get tired – so let’s switch it up a bit and grill up some pizza!

It’s easy to make savory or even sweet pizzas right on your grill. Start with your favorite pizza dough recipe OR pick up some fresh dough at the store, like Trader Joe’s.

Roll out the dough into individual oval-shaped pies, put parchment in between them and store in the fridge until you are ready to fire up. Get your sauces together, like garlicy herb oil or sassy tomato basil. And of course, get all your toppings out: cheeses, roasted veggies, meats, and more.

Now get your DIY pizza party going! Preheat the grill! Throw on a dough disk (bring it to room temperature) on and grill on the first side for about a minute, or more. You’ll want to be sure that it’s nice and crispy and has tasty grill marks. Then turn over and top with sauce, cheese and goodies, then cook until done – fun, right?

Hosting a Brunch Patio Party? Try grilling up a breakfast pizza: garlicky olive oil, mascarpone, shredded gouda, and crispy smoked bacon. Crack an egg on it and close the lid till just done.

For a sweet tooth, dish up and serve a s’mores pie. Cook up the pie crust until it is just bubbling, Turn it over, then top with marshmallows, crushed up salted chocolate bars, and crumbled graham crackers. For added decadence, drizzle with chocolate and caramel sauce – yum!

So get your imagination cap on, turn on the grill, roll up your sleeves and make a party out of grilling your next pizza pie. –Kathy
