Grilled pizza




Yesterday afternoon when Tony said he was in the mood for pizza, I was so excited since I had actually just bought some pizza dough while grocery shopping a few days prior. Which brings me to the news I've been spreading for the past couple of months since we first tried it::: Grilled Pizza is wonderful!!! It's so easy once you get the hang of it and tastes as good if not better than the best pizza you've ever had. I just did a recipe search to link to but the ones I've read all make it sound more difficult than it really is, but here is a decent one*. Basically you have a hot grill, throw your dough on it for a few minutes. When that side is done, flip it onto a baking sheet with the uncooked side down. Quickly put your toppings on the cooked side and using some tongs and a spatula, slide it back onto the grill for about 5 more minutes. It has come out wonderfully for us every time.
We gorged ourselves last night and even had some leftovers to snack on today during our Tuesday hangout with my sisters. (We're still trying to find a replacement for the Lair and today wound up at a family friends' pond.)

* This recipe calls for a charcoal grill-we use gas. Also it says to use cornmeal so it doesn't stick-we just use a bit of flour.
