Grilling pizza is really easy, especially when you use a pre-made frozen pizza. This guide will show you just how simple it is.
Yesterday was the summer solstice – the longest day of the year. That means that Summer is officially here along with higher temperatures for a few months. Since I like to cook, it brings to mind the expression, “If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen.”
On that note, I discovered a simple and inexpensive way to keep my kitchen and house cooler with a surprising way of cooking pizza – on the grill. Today I am going to share with you how I do it.
For the pizza, I pick up a couple of Jack’s thin-crust pizzas at Walmart. I preheat my gas grill to 400 degrees.
Once my grill is ready, I unwrap my pizzas, discard the plastic wrap and cardboard, and place them on the grill. I set my timer for 7 minutes. When the time is up, I rotate my pizzas 180 degrees and then grill them for about another 8 minutes. (It’s important to check the temperature on your grill. It is easy for the temperature to fluctuate and you don’t want it to get too hot and burn the pizza. A slight char around the crust is normal.)
I remove them from the heat and let them sit for a couple of minutes. Paired with fruit or a simple side salad, they make a quick and easy meal that’s delicious. Plus, I did not have to heat up my kitchen.
Didn’t that seem easy enough?
