Grilling a Pizza

If you've never grilled a pizza, you're in for a treat!

Grocery-shopping yesterday at Costco, I picked up a 3-pack of thin-crust pizzas. It's our favorite prepared food; if we're too beat to cook from scratch, and all out of leftovers, we tart up one of those bad boys with extra cheese, garlic and whatever we find in the fridge, and 14.5 minutes later are on the road to satiety!

We always get thin-crust pizza; the puffy-dough is just a waste of time and carbos.

To might surprise, delight and doubtfulness, the pizza at Costco now had grilling directions on the back. We absolute HAD to try it ... not only because of the inherent outrageousness of the concept, but also because our Seattle area's having a heat wave and we don't want to fire up the oven.

So up to the roof we went, and got the grill cranked up to a crazy hot temp. On went the pizza; in a few minutes we turned it, and soon it was done to a crispy tasty goodness!

We enjoyed this newfound delight with our friend Gail Gorud, who had stopped by to talk about some interesting "Reddy Kilowatt" printers' blocks she has. We were able to tap her knowledge of housing and gardening to further our quests on those matters as well. She, too, had never heard of grilling a pizza but joined in the general verdict: Tasty!

If you were looking for a life lesson or a deeper bit of wisdom, I'm afraid I have nothing today. Please check back later! sometimes, you just have to sit back and enjoy the 'za!
