Grilled Pizza

SEC football starts today!
This starts a new season, a new battle.
If you remember, last November, Auburn won bragging right for 365 days. This is the beginning of a new era for Alabama fans... the Saban-Nation!

How 'bout some pizza to eat during the games?

I have a basket of fresh tomatoes from the market, my basil has survived the heat and the drought. Perfect! The secret here is the freshest ingredients.

Margherita Pizza
dough for one pizza
1 small can crushed tomatoes
2 roma tomatoes
bunch of basil leaves
pizza blend grinder
grated mozzarella cheese

Place the dough on a hot grill, cook until set on one side, 3-5 minutes. Flip dough. Smear the crust with tomatoes, top with slices of tomatoes and fresh basil. Sprinkle generously with spices from a pizza grinder. Top with cheese. Close the lid and cook 10-15 minutes until cheese is melted and dough is cooked through. Allow to stand a few minutes before slicing.

Y'all enjoy!

Hi Sandi!
I'd never heard of grilled pizza until I read a Patricia Cornwell book. I've always wanted to try it. Maybe I will one day. Thanks for the recipe!

Sunday night is pizza night here! Love it!

I love making grilled pizza for parties -- I let each guest make his or her own pizza, from a whole bunch of toppings that I make ahead of time. Then we try to figure out what (or who) the shapes of the pizzas look like!
