Woohoo! Its Saturday! This Saturday was a special day because I was without kids for 6 hours. I needed a break. This past week was a doozy. (Do you use Google search for spell checking like I do?) I mentioned in my last post about all the baking, well there was also lots of cooking, and Dr. appointments, and preschool runs, and preparing for a special little man’s 3rd birthday. It was busy. So I made it out alive and decided to shop – all day. Well, most of the day. When I arrived home it was already 4:30 and the kids were getting cranky and whinny, so I needed something fast for dinner. Grilled Pizza.
I know I’ve posted this recipe before, but I’m posting it again because you really need to give it a try.
And the last time I posted it I didn’t do a very good job of explaining. This is everything you need – flour, dough, toppings, sauce, rolling pin, and grill. Heat the grill to medium high and make sure its well oiled.
Place the dough on the grill (sorry no pictures of this) for about 2 minutes. Then flip the dough on your cutting board grilled side up so the other side can be cooked as well. Add sauce. Try pesto – its amazing.
So what am I doing with the rest of my evening? Mark is away babysitting for some neighbors and I’m going to make some popcorn, drink a soda, and watch “Harry Potter.” (I just discovered these movies. Thanks Emily!)
1 dough round (store bought or homemade)
Toppings and sauce of your choice
Flour for rolling out dough
– Oil grill and heat to medium. Roll out dough into desired shape and thickness. Place dough on grill for 2 minutes (until grill marks appear). Take dough off grill and place on board or working surface grilled side up. Add sauce and toppings. Place back on grill for another 4 to 6 minutes, until cheese is bubbly and toppings heated.
Note on the bread recipe from last post: this is the site I found the recipe http://simplysogood.blogspot.com/2010/03/crusty-bread.html. I had several of you want to know more about this recipe. Please let me know if you tried it and if you tried any variations.
