The second the weather reaches 60 degrees here in Maine you can smell the grills going at night! After a long winter of soups and stews indoors, its always a treat to fire up the grill. We all love the standard grill fare; hamburgers, chicken, vegetables, etc, but we are also big fans of the grilled pizza! It is so easy to prepare and develops a unique flavor from the grill. Follow these step by step directions on a warm spring night!
|Organize your toppings. For this pizza, we chose to use Basil Pesto as our base with sauteed peppers, mushrooms, arugula and goat cheese|
|Whip up a batch of our Pizza Crust mix according to directions or you can purchase a premade dough at your local grocery store. Knead into the pizza shape desired. Brush the dough with oil to prevent it from sticking on the grill.|
|Grill the pizza until the top begins to bubble and the bottom starts turning brown and getting grill marks, about 8-10 minutes depending on the heat of your grill. Flip the pizza crust over using a pair of tongs to cook the other side.|
|As the other side is cooking, spread the Basil Pesto, or your "sauce" of choice over the crust|
|Slide off of the grill onto a cutting board|
|Let cool and serve!|
