I don’t care how good of cook you may be. Grilling pizza for the first time is SCARY!
BUT, I’m so glad I did it, because not only is it easy, but it’s AWESOME and I was able to successfully grill homemade pizza.
Which obviously means I get to eat two pizzas. That equals a good day in my book.
Also, how obsessed am I with my new Twins Peak cutting board? Pretty freaking obsessed.
Life is good with pizza and pretty pieces of wood, obviously.
I’ll be honest with you. I haven’t been wildly successful with homemade pizza dough in the past. It’s either too thick, too thin, too soft, or too crunchy. Finally, I think I’ve nailed it.
Plus, how cool do you feel when you make and shape your own dough? Well, I feel pretty cool. Except for when I get a little over confident and try to throw the pizza dough in the air like they do in restaurants. That never ends well.
Let me tell you the secret to grilling pizza.
Have ALL of your toppings prepared ahead of time and handy. This is a must!
You gotta work fast, but once you get the hang of it, it’s a piece of cake.
Well, actually it’s a piece of pizza.
When it comes to pizza, or food in general, I’m all about simplicity. Good quality, fresh ingredients go a long way.
