Grilled Pizza

I had on my menu last week for Thai Pizza and I had planned on grilling it to try out my new grill. After looking at the recipe all it was was stir-fry sauce, chicken, and peanuts. For some reason this did NOT sound appetizing. I had to bake some potatoes for Saturday so I threw some extra in to try a red potato pizza recipe I had for a while. It seemed to work pretty well.

Grilled Pizza
1 recipe for no rise pizza crust
your choice of toppings(see below)

Prepare dough as directed. Preheat greased grill. Divide dough in half or in quarters. Roll dough out...(now the key is NOT to roll it to thin because when you go to move it, it will tear. I think I re-rolled the dough 2 or 3 times each time I tried to roll out the dough, I was going for size. I know know to go for thickness!) Let cook until side is browned and the top is bubbly(yes I learned this as i put the 4th pizza on!) Once you flip it go ahead and top your pizza. Cook until cheese is melted.*I had my grill on low and this seemed to take forever to cook so next time I'll try med heat. It is nice to have a grill that doesn't have hot spots!

Hawaiian Bbq Pizza topping
bbq sauce(Bull's Eye is high fructose corn syrup free!)
Pineapple,chunks or tidbits
diced ham

Spread dough with bbq sauce. Sprinkle pineapple, ham, and cheese over the top.

Red Potato Pizza topping
2-3 red potatoes, baked,sliced thin
4 oz cream cheese
1/2 cup sour cream
fresh herbs,chopped(I used rosemary, basil, and oregnao)
diced chicken
diced partially cooked broccoli

Mix together cream cheese, herbs, and sour cream. Spread on dough. Top with potatoes, chicken, broccoli, and cheese. Cook until cheese is melted.

*this makes a lot of sauce, so if you aren't making a lot of pizza I'd cut it down.(I did used the extra in our eggs for the breakfast burritos) This also makes a pretty thick pizza. I enjoyed it!
