Grilled Pizza A Winner JT April 21, 2011 Cooking, Pizza, Recipes 4 Comments Samâ€™s post from the 7th got me thinking about pizza styles — but not how to eat it — how to cook it. Now I love going out to eat a good hand-tossed pie, but I have also been known to make one to rave reviews. To date, all of my home-cooking has taken place in the oven. But, a few weeks back, I read on Simply Recipes about a way to make a pizza on the grill. Last night I tried it out. I bought a dough at a local pizza joint, then rolled it out, brushed on some olive oil and threw it on a hot grill (mine got to 400 degrees). A couple minutes on one side, brought it in the house, flipped it, topped it, then back out for a few more minutes with slightly reduced heat. Have more dough? Just repeat â€“ making the dough thinner or thicker for a crispy or chewy crust, Â and changing up the toppings as you see fit. The result? As you can see from the top â€“ two wonderful pies. One white pizza with sweet potato slices (previously baked), onion, lots of cheese and topped with spicy arugula. The other had a great homemade sauce, squash and more onion. Two different tastes, but both awesome, and both so quick and easy to cook. Anyone else tried pizza this way?

That is my favorite way to cook pizza. I love cooking as much as possible on the grill. Have you tried grilling your bacon yet? The flare ups are a nightmare and you can really only manage 6 or so pieces at a time, but the smoke cure + grilling smoke = double smoked awesome… now if only I can keep the eggs on the grill. Reply Eick April 22nd, 2011 This looks and sounds awesome. I’ve never grilled pizza before but really want to now. Reply Zack April 25th, 2011 YES! Grilled pizza is one of the easiest/most ingenious ways for an inexperienced chef like myself to look like a pro to my girlfriend. An old-fashioned Margherita is the route I normally go, but yours sounds/looks even better! Reply JT April 25th, 2011 Thanks, Zack. That’s one of the best parts of home-cooking a pizza – experimentation. Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
