Pizza on the Grill

As the temperatures heat up, I become less inclined to turn on my oven and more excited about grilling!  So this week I decided to take a little risk and make a pizza on the grill.  It seems a bit intimidating at first, but the results are well worth it.

Ingredients

  • 3 Tbs olive oil
  • garlic salt
  • Pizza crust (store bought or home-made)
  • 2 Pekarek’s Produce tomatoes
  • 2 handfuls of Pekarek’s Produce Spinach
  • Alfredo sauce
  • Shredded chicken
  • 1/2 lb. bacon

Method

1 Turn the grill on with the burners on high and let heat for 15 minutes, to about 400°F (if your thermometer works).

2 Turn the burners down to medium.  Combine olive oil with a pinch of garlic salt.  Brush this directly on the grates of your grill.

3 Throw (maybe gently place) your pizza crust on the grill.  It bubbles up pretty quickly and won’t fall through the grates.  Let it cook about 3-5 minutes.  Next use 2 spatulas to flip the pizza crust and cook the other side.

For this pizza, I started with a store bought crust in a can – c’mon, there is no way we have enough time to made a homemade crust in the middle of the week!

4 Add your toppings while the other side is cooking.

I added about 4 tbs of alfredo sauce, followed by the shredded chicken, bacon, tomatoes and spinach.  Top with mozzarella cheese if desired.  The great thing about pizza is you can put anything on it and make each part of it a little bit different.  Also try throwing your garlic bread on the grill.  It works great!
