"Pizza on the Grill"
By Brandie Valenzuela
With warm weather here, you might be looking for something new to put on the grill, well, then, do I have a surprise for you! Pizza! Yep, you read right, pizza. If you have children like mine, then they are sure to love pizza, so gather the family around the grill and make something totally different, that won't heat up your kitchen!
Ideas for the "crust":
~Pitas: Leave whole without splitting.
~French bread: Cut in half lengthwise.
~Sandwich Rolls: Split in half.
~Bagels/English Muffins: Split in half.
~Flour tortillas: Try to buy the thicker variety called "gordita" or double up two thin ones with a small
amount of pizza sauce between each one.
~Prebaked pizza crusts
Ideas for toppings:
~Cheese: mozzerella, cheddar, or be creative - just about
any kind that slices or shreds will work.
~Veggies: sliced onions, bell peppers, mushrooms
~Meats: pepperoni, ham, chicken, bacon, sausage (be sure all of these are cooked first)
~Mexican: beans (refried, black,etc.), cheddar cheese,
Here's how to make them:
1. Heat your grilll to medium heat.
2. Brush bottom of "crust" lightly with oil.
3. Spread unoiled side with pizza sauce, and add toppings.
4. Place on grill and cook, covered, 2 - 3 minutes. Bottom
should be crisp and cheese melted.
5. Serve with a salad and enjoy!
