The last Day of Summer and Pizza on the Grill

You know those days when the leaves turn all those pretty colors and it gets cold and chilly and you start to realize Fall is gonna come soon…

But then all of a sudden, there is this one Day where Summer is all back and you get out your shirt and shorts and just enjoy this one amazing warm day. Last Weekend we had one of those amazing Last Summer Days.

Grilled Pizza

So we decided to grill out one last time and we thought as a fitting finish to this pretty Day we make something we had never tried before, Grilled Pizza. We didnt know how it would turn out and we definitely had some trial and error with it, but in the End it was just absolutely delicious… in fact, so delicious that I just about forgot to take a picture of the finished thing, we just ate it all. So the only conclusion, you just have to try it yourself. I promise you, you won’t be dissappointed.

Since it was a Sunday (and all the stores are closed on Sundays in Germany) we had to use what we had in the fridge and pantry. So we ende up doing two different versions.

Number one is a very original Red Tomatoe Sauce – Salami Pizza

Number two was a little different, we made a White Ranch Sauce with Turkey Lunchmeat

Grilled Pizza

1 package active dry yeast
1 teaspoon white sugar
1 cup warm water
2 1/2 cups bread flour
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon salt

Toppings of your Choice
for the White Pizza:
– Ranch Dressing
– Smoked Turkey Breast Lunch Meat
– Mushrooms (out of a Can)
– Buttercheese

for the Red Pizza:
– Tomatoe Sauce
– Italian Seasoning
– Salami
– Mushrooms
– Gouda

1. Start your fire. Since we use real charcoal we start about 45min to an hour before we want the Pizzas to go on. The coal has to be all white and no flames should be seen, that is when they are the right heat. I can’t give you any tips on using Gas since we never owned a gas grill.

2. Will the fire is getting started go inside and in a medium bowl, dissolve yeast and sugar in warm water. Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes.

3. Stir in flour, salt and oil. Beat until smooth. Let rest for 5 minutes.

4. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and pat or roll into a round. Transfer crust to a lightly greased pizza pan, pizza sheet or stone.

5. Spread with desired toppings and put the Pizza on the grill. Since we dont have a BBQ and only an open Grill we used some tinfoil that we sprayed with some cooking spray to help melt the cheese.

6. Grill until the crust is nice and golden brown and the cheese is all melty. Cooking Time really depends on your grill, so check on it every once in a while. It took about 45min for ours, but it was worth it.

7. Enjoy the Goodness.

Grilled Pizza Last but not least, my Dad aka Teddlinskers grilling the deliciousness, with some Bratwurst (German Sausage | which can never be missed) and some Buffalo Chicken Wings that have been brushed with Moores Buffalo Wing Sauce. Which is in my opinion definitely the best out there.

    …and so I am laying on the grill recipes while there is still time. Not that the Southern husband won’t go out and grill in the snow…but somehow, it’s not the same. And along with this summer’s favorite grill recipe, which is Buttermilk Grilled Chicken , one of my top choices for the grill is grilled pizza.
