Take one homemade ball of pizza dough and one rusty barbecue...
and you get
Grilling the pizza on the barbecue as opposed to baking it in an oven, gives it this rich smoky, grilled flavor that is just perfect on a hot summer afternoon!
After rolling out your pizza ball into a flat circle, place on the grill, flipping back and forth until it you can see grill marks on the underside (this should take a few minutes). Then take the pizza base of the grill as you grill your toppings. In my case, I threw on some figs for a few minutes.
Then assemble your pizza and grill with the barbecue lid closed for 5 - 8 minutes.
The toppings on this particular pizza included: grilled figs, arugula, goat cheese and caramelized onions (although I forgot to make them so there not in the photo - but they're there in spirit!!)
We had a fun Carmageddon barbecue / pool party here (by the way, that was all hype as there was NO traffic in L.A. this weekend! A welcomed anomaly!!)
The boys had fun dressing up on a play date.....
And while Mr. P. was yucking it up at soccer and a birthday party, I took Doodlebop to see the new Winnie the Pooh movie. I think he liked the popcorn better than the movie.....
Hope you all had a great weekend!
