I have only heard of people using their grills to cook a pizza but have never done it myself. I got a bee in my bonnet on Sunday and decided that I wanted a grilled pizza. So I tried to find my pizza recipe that has to rise and could never put my hands on it. I found my Cusinart book and low and behold there was a recipe for pizza dough in there. Better yet, it did not have to rise. So I was good to go.
I went out into the garden and picked all the ripe tomatoes I could find along with some sad looking Basil and decided that would be the topping for one pizza. I checked in the pantry for the Pizza Quick that I had in mind for the pizza sauce. I got to thinking about how long it has been in there and just as a lark, read the expiration date. Good Grief! It expired in 2005. Can we say (FIFO-First In, First Out)?
I mixed up the dough in the Cusinart, which I have never done before. It was so fast that I just might not ever use the Kitchen Aid recipe ever again! Too quick. Then I opened up a can of tomato paste and smeared it all over the top of the two rounds that I had rolled out on the cart. I didn't add anything to it, just wanted to keep it simple. One pizza had some really over ripe roma tomatoes with some sad looking heat frizzled basil and then a handfull of mozzrella cheese. I brushed the exposed crust with olive oil The second pizza had crumbled up cooked sausage and assorted grilled veggies and of course, a hand full of cheese. But of course, I can't get Blogger to load the second picture and so all you get to see is the one with the Roma tomatoes.
Then it was off to a non-stick sprayed, pre-heated grill to see what was going to happen. I was shocked that it was so quick and they turned out right nicely if I do say so myself. They weren't pretty by any means, but they did hit the spot. Both hubby and I were shocked!
