Grilled Pizza

It is that time of year yet again, when the grill and patio furniture get dragged out of hibernation.  Cooking and eating start to move outside as the days get warmer and longer.

Monday night I was inspired by a recipe for spinach and mushroom pizza.  The original recipe that I saw relied heavily on prepared/processed ingredients.  I switched it up a little bit by making my own crust and sauteing fresh mushrooms with garlic (DaGoof will not eat canned mushrooms).  I did use frozen spinach, tomato sauce and shredded cheese since I had these items on hand and I wanted to use them up.

I divided up about 1 pound of pizza crust into 4 smaller portions.  Easier to stretch and transfer to the grill.  After grilling for about 2-3 minutes on the first side I flipped the crusts.  Each crust was topped with sauce, mushrooms, spinach and cheese (mozzarella and feta).  Grilled for a few more minutes until the cheese melted.    

DaGirl was not crazy about the slightly charred bottom on her pizza, but everyone else chowed down.  I can't wait to grill some more pizzas.  How should I top the next batch?  Sausage and caramelized onions or  ham and pineapple or chicken and broccoli?
