Grilled pizza? who knew?

Over the last couple of years, I’ve noticed more and more recipes and articles on grilled pizza.  I have to confess, I’ve been a scoffer.  Yes, I’m Lori and I’m a scoffer. [sigh]  I am so ashamed. 

I finally decided tonight was the night to give it a try for lack of other interesting supper ideas.  Do you call it supper or dinner where you’re from?  I have lunch during the day unless it’s a nice sit down Sunday dinner and we have supper at night but sometimes go out for dinner.  But breakfast is breakfast no matter what.

Sorry, back to the point of the post.  have I said lately that my concentration is off?  Can you tell?  Sometimes I feel like a dog that just noticed a squirrel.  Know what I mean?

Anyway, I cheated and bought pre-made crust, a must after a long work day.  This particular crust was “ultra thin” and even came with a package of sauce, purchased at our local “mart” store which by the way I detest going to especially after work, not that it matters but I do.  The whole “mart” thing is a necessary evil in my book.  The only tolerable time to go is at 6am and there’s not very many times that happens.

We fried up sausage, went to our little garden and picked fresh basil and banana peppers, used up some leftover tomatoes and mushrooms, added cheese and wallah!  the most incredible pizza was had!


And the best part of it was, DH & I made it together.  I love that!

The moral of the story is…don’t scoff until you’ve tried it. You may not know what you’ve been missing.


  1. Mmmmm....and together time? Just can't beat any time spent with those you love! Have a great week!

  2. What you didn't tell us how the grilling went. Oh nevermind we saw the final results. Looks Yummy!!

  3. Oh Yum! You had me at sausage and peppers!!! (I'll even pardon the trip to the mart)

  4. I've been wanting to try this too. We have a grocery store (not the mart) that sells fresh pizza dough in the bakery. It's allegedly good. The whole bread dough on the grill thing is what has kept me from trying it I think.

  5. It is really good with homemade crust and the garden veggies on top. :) We did this a few years ago and I was thinking last week that I need to see about trying it "my way" again.

  6. I've been wanting to try this, but a little iffy on it also. Thanks for the encouragement! Can't argue with the results - looks delish! -Tammy

  7. Our mart has a "mia" pizza crust that I really like...real thin. I've done this, but I usually just throw it in the oven for about 15 minutes ...same thing.

  8. Oh forgot to work, lunch is at noon, but at home it's dinner for noon and supper for night...or just "what are you cookin' for us to eat"!
