Pizza on the Grill

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

    This pizza had a great taste. I did use a pouch mix crust to save time. Looking forward to trying this crust recipe in the future. I also substituted onions for the green peppers. I used not quite 3/4 cup of BBQ sauce and thought it was a little too much. The next time I would use the 1/2 cup.

    I have made this recipe so many times I have lost is t-h-a-t good! I also make it in the oven. Set to 350 degrees. I saute my onions and peppers in a little olive oil before adding on top and my BBQ is 1/2 bulls eye original and 1/2 Heinz 57. Combo that with a good cojack cheese...MMMMMMM. Love this crust. Very different and everyone loves it. I also cook it on a pizza stone with parchment paper underneath, par cooking it for 6 minutes before adding toppings. If you love BBQ chicken, you will enjoy this.
