#45: Grilled Eggplant Pizza Recipe 8/22/10

I’ve been told that grilled pizza is all the rage. So, I finally convinced Andrew we needed to buy a barbeque grill so we could get in on the fun. I was pretty nervous about attempting a grilled pizza because I have no experience grilling anything. In the case that we screwed this up, I created two pizza recipes this afternoon.

Eggplants and leeks came in our food collective this week. Andrew grilled these veggies and set them aside. I rolled out the dough, then sprayed it with cooking oil and laid it on a grill pan for about three minutes. Andrew and I carefully flipped the dough and then assembled the toppings, which consisted of marinara sauce, fresh oregano, Fontina and mozzarella cheeses, and finally the grilled veggies. After about four minutes on the grill we transferred the pizza to a different pan and set it on the top rack of the grill to let the cheese melt while we made the other pizza. Check out my next blog entry for details on the results!
