Pizza type 2 of 3 from my Dad’s birthday pizza fest was my parents favorite combo: Pepperoni, Pepper & Onion. The other two pizzas were a GRILLED HAWAIIAN PIZZA
and a GRILLED MEATLOVER'S PIZZA
. The dough recipe, GRILLED PIZZA DOUGH - FAST
, the Crushed Tomato Sauce and cooking method came from Pizza on the Grill
This pizza used crushed tomato sauce, parmesan cheese, diced roasted red pepper and diced onions, topped with Monterey jack & mozzarella cheese. The authors also have you make a spicy topping mix they add to many of there pizzas after they come off the grill, along with kosher salt & black pepper.
The pizza was wonderful, but also was a bit of a mystery. The first side burned after 3 minutes 30 seconds of grilling when the other pizzas cooked before and after at the same temperature took 5 minutes. The only thing I can think of is the strong winds we were having fanned the flames. Fortunately for me I was the only one bothered by the well done crust. Everyone else dug in and enjoyed the pizza. I liked the flavor the roasted peppers gave this pizza vs. plain red peppers. The sauce was better than jarred sauces and most of what you get out. All in all this pizza was a hit too, despite my misgivings about the well done crust on one side.
