Last chance grilled pizza....

The weather outside is not cooperating with my vision of what the weather outside should be. My vision is 78 degrees and perfect.  
Things are changing. Some people love the fall, but in my mind, although beautiful, autumn is a harbinger of freezing my tushy off.
 
So in these dwindling days of warmth, I can still use my grill without donning a parka. At least today I can.  

Here is a recipe for a grilled pizza....

Here is what I started with...



Sprinkle corn meal on a cookie sheet.

Take the dough, divide it into two pieces and press them into  free form shapes on top of the cornmeal.


I remembered I had some baby spinach in the fridge, so I chopped it up to add to the mixture.
I had some left over canned mushrooms, too.


Heated up the grill, turned it to medium heat and laid the dough carefully onto the grill.

When it looked like this on the bottom, I took it off the grill and put it back onto a cookie sheet, grilled side up.

I didn't use pizza sauce. I used Barbeque sauce.

I put the filling on top of the sauce.

I sprinkled some spices on top.

I put a little mozzarella chesse on it AND some blue cheese sprinkles. Put it back on the grill and grill til it's done on the bottom and the cheese is melted. (be careful not to burn it!!)

Serve with a salad and a glass of red wine or a beer.

Yum!

OOPS....forgot to say...I am ONE of those people who LOVE the fall and it's cooler temps. Having said that, this humid weather we are having the last few days is killing me!

We just watched Mario Batelli show about pizza.Very interesting show...he went all over the US finding different pizzas.Yours must have tasted a lot like the one baked in the wood fired ovens. Very crispy browned crust with a charred flavor. I love the free form style...Balisha

Yum, Elenka... That looks great and fairly simple. I'm sure your Sweetie enjoyed it!!!!!! I have enjoyed keeping up with him on his blog...

Thanks for your comment about what I said about life and death... I should finish off that statement by saying that it is easier to say and believe than to DO... ha
Hugs,
Betsy
