Summertime Fine / by Megan Tomino

I'M BACK!! You guys. It's been awhile. Recently my Instagram feed has been an overload of grilling posts from the likes of Bon Appetit - luckily for us, we get to grill pretty much all year round. When it comes to grilling most people reach for steaks and chicken thighs, but my favorite thing to grill is PIZZA.

Grilling pizza is so easy you'll never make it in your oven again. For starters, clean-up is a breeze. Since you're outdoors you can make a mess (and trust me you will make a mess). I like to go to the grocery store, get every type of pizza topping then create a build your own pizza bar. On this particular evening we prepped olives, prosciutto, salami, mozzarella, red onions, basil, baby kale, currant tomatoes, sun dried tomatoes, parmesan, crimini mushrooms and last but certainly not least, anchovies. (Side note: anchovies are my #1 most beloved topping).

So here's what you do. Make the dough. I use Roberta's dough recipe because it's the best and always comes out perfectly. Weigh out 8oz balls and let rest under a damp towel until everyone is ready to eat. Then let everyone go to town. Carefully throw the topped pizza onto a scorching hot grill (at least 500 degrees) and cook till the crust is crispy and the cheese is bubbling. Allow to cool for a few minutes before digging in!
