Ready, Set, Grill…..Pizza!Posted: June 19, 2011
Who doesn’t love pizza? It’s even more fun (and delicious) when you design your own pizza! Tonight we had “personalized” pizzas on the grill! If you haven’t tried grilling pizza yet, don’t wait any longer. It’s easy and the result is a fresh tasting pizza with a toasty grilled flavor! Delicious! I put together an assortment of topping choices: Mozzarella and Parmesan cheese, of course, artichoke hearts, roasted red peppers, sliced tomatoes, pizza sauce, prosciutto, pepperoni, and arugula.
I used a couple of pounds of dough that I purchased from an Italian deli (Mona Lisa – San Diego) or you can make your own. I rolled each pound out into a 3 small pizzas and let them “rest and rise” on a floured baking sheet. Mix up some olive oil, chopped garlic, and black pepper and lightly brush each pizza round. Place them oil side down on a hot grill – then lower the heat to medium. After a few minutes, flip the pizzas over and top with whatever makes you happy. A few minutes later, you’ve got fresh grilled pizza! Buon Appetito!
