Kirk received a new charcoal grill for his birthday and we have been putting it to good use! We have grilled everyday except for Wednesday. Today we tried something new! My sister and her girls were here today and we decided to try grilled pizza. Kirk found the suggestion in a kitchen/recipe book given to him by Aunt Debbie. The book said to put the dough directly on the grill, cook it awhile, then flip it, top it, and close the lid to wait for the cheese to melt.
It was soooo good! I think it might be harder on a gas grill, because I kept dropping cheese and dripping olive oil through the grate and I think it would cause flare ups on a gas grill, but on the charcoal grill it was not a problem. We made a garlic cheese bread, pepperoni pizza, and pepperoni with bell pepper & onion. A few things we learned as we went: use less tomato sauce and cheese than you usually would, keep the grill closed as much as possible (we couldn't resist checking on the pizzas so it took longer to cook!), and make more than one recipe of dough! We had to go back and make another batch of pizza crust because it went so fast!
Maybe this will be on the menu for the next family get together!
I am a Mom. That is my definition of me. I am Mom to four loud, busy, creative, strong-willed children. My husband is my very best friend and thankfully, just as strongwilled as our kids! Our house is loud, and I mean really loud, and disorganized, but always interesting. We homeschool, craft, play in the dirt alot, and love to travel!
