Pizza from the Grill
When I first heard about grilled pizza, I had visions of goo dripping right through each grate in the grill. I figured it would be the end of my grill so I put off even attempting it. No more. I'm determined to become the master of grilled pizza and I'm off to a winning start.
First of all I read this how to. Yes, reading really IS fundamental.
Then I grilled eggplants and some chicken sausage. I used Trader Joe's pre-made dough oiled with some canola oil. And it worked!
After I grilled the dough, I brushed on more olive oil and then covered the bread in eggplant, sausage, tomatoes, fresh mozzarella torn to pieces and fresh spinach from the garden. I sprinkled on some salt and pepper and slid it back on the grill.
And then I inhaled it whole.....Okay, maybe not but practically. It was everything I had dreamed grilled pizza could be without the gooey messiness.
I now declare this to be the Summer of the Grilled Pizza.
