Food - Pizza on the Grille

Did you know that you could make pizza on the grille? Ok, so maybe you did. But here's the camp friendly version that doesn't require you to make rising dough and toss the crust like old Chef Boyardee. Here's our recipe for a fabulous pie. First up are the ingredients:

-Pita bread. Get the ones that are slightly bready.
-Lite Done Rite Italian Dressing
-Contadina Pepperoni Pizza Sauce
-Grated Mozzarella and Parmesan Cheeses
-Dried Oregano
-Red Onion, chopped finely
-Pre cooked pizza toppings of your choice

BBQ Brush or fork
Spatula or tongs
Large sheet of aluminum foil or large steel mixing bowl

Get your coals or fire hot. Make sure your grille is lubed up with oil. I prefer olive oil. Brush one side of each pita with the dressing. Toss, dressing side down, onto the grille and cook until it starts to brown a bit. Take off of the grille and brush the other side with a little bit of dressing. On the cooked side apply the pizza sauce, oregano, toppings, mozzarella, onion and top with a dusting of parmesan. Place back on the grille. If you are using a BBQ grille with a lid, close it. If not cover the pizzas with the metal bowl or the tented foil to melt the cheese. When cheese is melted your pizzas are done. Slice and enjoy.

    Excellent idea - we love camp pizza whenever we're back country or car camping!

    Ever try a canned cheeseburger?
