I thought I would take this time away from the kitchen to go ahead and get caught up on the meals that I have created but just not blogged yet. And get excited, because there are some good ones! I have already done one post for homemade grilled pizza, but this time, I really outdid myself! Actually, my husband and sister-in-law and I outdid OURselves-I can’t take all the credit! Jordan came to visit us back in March and one night we just made a TON of pizza. Four pizzas for three people to be exact! Don’t judge.
This is so much fun to do and so easy. I use store-bought pizza dough and a whole mess of toppings and just go to work. You would be surprised what you already have in your fridge that can be used for these pizzas. For example, we used bar-b-que sauce for one of the pizzas instead of regular pizza sauce. Store bought or homemade pesto? Sure, throw some of that on there. Opened spaghetti sauce, haven’t tried it, but I don’t know why it wouldn’t work. You get the idea. I honestly do not have exact measurements on any of these pizzas, but I will list out the ingredients used. Plus, it’s more fun to just pile on the ingredients anyway.
Heat the grill to medium-high heat. Roll out pizza dough and brush the top with canola oil, then season with salt and pepper. Place dough on the grill, oiled side down and grill until the bottom is charred and lightly golden brown. Brush the top with additional oil before flipping over. Flip and grill for additional 30 seconds.
Transfer the crust to a baking sheet and begin to add toppings (yes, the pan will go directly on the grill, so use an old baking sheet). Place pan on grill and close the lid. Cook for a few minutes, until the cheese is melty-ooey-gooey-good. Take pizza off grill and place on cutting board to slice. Have a competition to see who can eat the most!
What’s your favorite kind of pizza? I bet if would be good grilled!
