Enjoy Summer's Bounty with Grilled Pizza


Here’s a new baking trick to try now that summer is here — grilled pizza! You can use the same pizza dough you already use (frozen, pre-made or make your own using all-purpose or bread flour) but since grilling pizza uses direct heat, go lighter with the toppings. Try thinly sliced cheeses (mozzarella, of course, but also try grated fontina, smoked Gouda, or goat cheese), thin strips of fresh vegetables (baby spinach, summer squash, asparagus, spring onions – be creative and make the most of summer’s bounty) and fresh herbs (basil, rosemary, and thyme all work well).

Pizza on the grill keeps your kitchen cool and the final result is a crisp, lightly smoky crust with fresh ingredients. To grill your own pizza, check out the Wheat Foods Council's Grilled Pizza recipe. You can use this as a starting point and modify it with your own combinations – the possibilities are endless!
