grilled pizza

We decided to give grilled pizza a try. If you haven’t done it yet, you should! Two reasons: (1) it’s delicious and (2) it’s easy.

We bought Trader Joe’s whole wheat pizza dough & formed it into a circle on a surface covered in flour and cornmeal. Michael coated the grill grates in olive oil and slid the crust on. (I promise it won’t fall through the grates. We were convinced it would.) It bubbled up & he took it off.

There were some pretty crazy bubbles!

Then we flipped it over

and added sauce and toppings.

… and more cheese. Always more cheese.

Then Michael put it back on the grill to melt the cheese and bring everything together.

Our friends do this with a pizza stone (specifically made to handle the high grill temps) and the grilling was more even. We bought a stone, too, and intend to try it out next time because our only complaint was that the grill hotspots caused uneven cooking.

But like I said … delicious and easy!
