Easy Grilled Pizza

GrillePizza5

Grilled pizza is one of my favorite summer meals. It’s easy, involves almost no planning and it’s super quick. The first time I tried this I was thinking, there’s no way this is going to work! But it works and it works really well.

The ingredients for grilled pizza are the same as you’d use for a traditional pizza:

I like to prep everything inside and lay it out on a cutting board to take outside.  This seems to keep things contained a little better, and it’s easier than carrying a million things back and forth to the kitchen. It’s also a great idea to have everything prepped before you start – these cook quickly!

In a nutshell, you plop your dough onto the preheated grill. When the bottom is firm and has grill lines (after about a minute on the grill), you flip it over.    [Read more…]

15 min Gluten-free BLT Pizza

Have you ever had one of those nights that you literally had 15 minutes to get dinner on the table? I seem to have them a lot. We get home – it’s dinner time and everyone is hungry! This little gem is one of my favorites. Now that I discovered it, my family asks for it once a week. I hope that it becomes a favorite in your home too.

  • 1/2 cup of ranch (I make mine like this)

What to do:

  1. Preheat the oven to 375.
  2. Lay the pizza crust out on a pan.
  3. Cover with the cheese, bacon, and green onions.
  4. Bake for 5-7 minutes until all toppings are melted and lightly browned.

Mini Deep Dish Pizzas

I am really excited to introduce you to Kate, one of EaH’s new contributing writers.  I think you are going to love reading her posts and her recipes too.  Kate blogs at Kate’s Recipe Box I can’t wait to try these Mini Deep Dish Pizzas.  In fact, I may make up a batch and put them in the freezer for quick snacks and lunches.

Here in the suburbs of New York City, there is – quite literally – a pizza parlor on every corner. Getting a deep dish pizza is incredibly tricky, though. Everyone is fiercely loyal to New York-style pizza.

I first tried deep dish (aka, Chicago style) when I was in college. I loved the buttery crust and the chunky tomato sauce but quickly realized that if it was something I wanted on a regular basis, I’d have to make it myself.

I like making these mini-versions because they’re easy to adjust for different tastes. You can add any of your favorite pizza toppings in place of the green peppers. I usually make several different flavors in one pan, using whatever we have in the refrigerator – pepperoni and ham with pineapple are other favorites!

Here’s what you’ll need (olive oil, too, which didn’t make the picture):

Mini Deep Dish Pizzas
Ingredients
  • 6 Tablespoon + 1 teaspoon Olive oil, divided
  • ⅓ cup onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 can (14.5 oz.) petite diced tomatoes
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 1 ball (approx. 16 oz.) pizza dough
  • ½ green pepper, finely diced
  • 8 oz. mozzarella cheese, shredded
Instructions
  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large frying pan, until shimmering. Add the onion and cook for 5 minutes, until translucent.
  3. Stir in minced garlic. Cook for about 30 seconds, or until fragrant.
  4. Stir in diced tomatoes and Italian seasoning. Cook until slightly thickened, about 15 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
  5. Add 1 teaspoon olive oil to each well of a cupcake tin.
  6. Roll out pizza dough until about ¼ inch thick. Using a biscuit cutter slightly larger than the opening of your cupcake pan, cut out rounds of dough and push them into the cupcake pans. (If you don’t have a biscuit cutter, a large cup or small bowl would work too!)
  7. Add a heaping tablespoon of the tomato sauce to each pizza dough cup. Top with chopped peppers and shredded mozzarella cheese.
  8. Bake for 15-18 minutes, until cheese is bubbly and dough is lightly browned on top.
  9. Remove from oven and let cool for two minutes before removing to a serving tray.

Chicken Florentine Pizza

Every once in a while, I like a good cheater meal.  One that relies on a prepared ingredient to speed dinner prep.  This one uses two such ingredients – a jar of alfredo sauce and prepared pizza crust.  You could probably also count the bag of pre-washed spinach and shredded cheese too.

In fact, the only thing I really cooked for this was the grilled chicken.  If you’re in a big hurry, you could buy those grilled chicken strips from the meat section of the grocery.  I used the George Foreman to grill mine since the grill was covered with snow.

What can I say?  I like to cheat at dinner prep sometimes.  Call me lazy.

Here’s what you’ll need, if you’re a cheat, like me: [Read more…]

Pizza Pot Pie – Chicago Style

I fell in love the other night. 

Cruising around one of my favorite forums, I stumbled on a post titled “Pizza Pot Pie”.  My first thought was “yuck!”  But I clicked the message and read the description of the dish and my thoughts changed to “yum!”  Then I googled and found this site with pictures and I knew I had to make it for myself.  [Read more…]
