How to Grill Pizza

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.

Temp

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?

These little babies disappear quite quickly after I make them.  Another thing that goes quickly is NESTLÉ® DRUMSTICK® BUTTERFINGER® Drumsticks.  Need I say more?

Want to try grilling pizza on your gas grill?  Just do what I do.   Go to Walmart and pick up a couple of Jack’s pizzas in the freezer section.   It’s crazy at just how affordable they are!  While in the novelty ice cream section, pick up some NESTLÉ® DRUMSTICK® BUTTERFINGER® and Vanilla® Cones.

Get pizza dough roll it out with flour and a little olive oil on one side. Ore-heat the BBQ and put on the rolled out dough. After it gets form flip it and put you faviorte toppings on. Now that's BBQ pizza.

Grilled pizza is THE best!! My husband thought I was crazy when I first suggested it but now he's totally sold.

I've never grilled a pizza, but it looks like a great idea and so much better than heating up the kitchen when it's hot already. I could definitely go for one of those drumsticks, too.

I think I may like grilled pizza better than baked! These pictures look so yummy.
