Summertime heat? No probs here. We grilled it.
Here's the truth. I did not make this dough. Trader Joe's is really good at that.
I didn't make the dough, but I DID knead it. Even used flour and stuff. #legit
You could even go all CSI and find my prints. I totally killed this dough.
Before adding toppings, you'll pre-grill the dough. Then give 'er a flip and top al fresco with delicious arugula pesto, tomatoes and real mozzarella. Back to the grill it goes.
Ready to go.
Grilled to pizza perfection. A little misshapen, but hey, this is home cooking.
Grilled Arugula Pesto Pizza
1 packaged pizza dough (whole wheat preferably)
1/2 cup arugula pesto
1-2 tomatoes, sliced
1 ball fresh mozzarella, sliced
1 tablespoons fresh basil, chopped
Prepare dough according to package instructions. Place on a floured, rimless cookie shoot. Preheat grill until VERY hot. Gently slide pizza dough onto oiled grill and cover for 2-3 minutes. Use cookie sheet to remove pizza and flip grill-side up. Thinly spread pesto on grilled side of pizza dough and top with tomato and mozzarella. Reduce grill to medium heat and place pizza (dough-y side down) back on the grill. Cover and cook pizza until crispy, 4-5 minutes. Remove pizza from grill and allow to set 2-3 minutes before topping with basil and slicing.
