Tired of pepperoni pizza? When we have the grill going, we like to make this recipe. The chewy from-scratch crust is topped with pizza sauce, mozzarella cheese, asparagus and ham. We love pizza and when it's made on the grill, it's even better.
I came up with this recipe one summer as a way to use up vegetables from our garden. Grilling the veggies first brings out their sizzling flavors. Try it with a sprinkling of olives or pine nuts before adding the cheese. —Susan Marshall, Colorado Springs, Colorado
Last summer, while we were building our new house, our grill served as my temporary stove. Among the recipes I experimented with was this crispy thin-crust pizza. It met with such approval, guests were eager to try it in their own backyards.
Here's the perfect pizza for cheese lovers. Served with a green salad, it makes a satisfying meal. You can use store-bought dough if you don't have a bread machine.—Christine Omar, Harwich Port, Massachusetts
"Since pizza is a big favorite with my teenagers, I like to keep these crispy snacks on hand," says Ruby Williams of Bogalusa, Louisiana. "Loaded with toppings, they go right from the freezer to the oven with little time and effort. And they're always a hit."
Pizza is such a favorite at our house that I make it at least once a week. When the heat and humidity are up there, though, the last thing that I want to do is turn on the oven. So I just move my recipe to the grill—the barbecue flavor mingling with the cheese tastes delicious. —Lisa Boettcher, Columbus, Wisconsin
A delicate peanut-flavored sauce is topped with cheese, fresh Asian veggies and juicy chunks of chicken to give these unique individual pizzas a deliciously different flavor. One bite and this Asian-inspired pizza pie will become a favorite.
Summer calls for a delicious change of pace from ordinary pizza. This colorful version puts fresh vegetables, cheese and a savory meat sauce on top of a crispy cornmeal crust. You will have a hard time eating just one slice!
