I’ve made this sauce countless times and people often comment on how good it tastes. I highly recommend adding this to your list of stock recipes.
This is a grilled pizza that comes together quickly with excellent results.
When I started making grilled pizzas, what I appreciated about this recipe (like many of Craig’s recipes) is it added a lot of flavor to the finished pizzas without the need for an extremely complicated recipe or lots of prep time.
The summer grilling season is approaching and I want to bring attention to one of my favorite grilling techniques, Grilled Pizza, made popular by chef Craig Priebe.
If you’ve ever eaten gourmet pizza made in a brick oven, you know how good the crispy, smoky crust is. Craig’s grilled pizza technique makes recreating this crust easy. I think you’ll be impressed with the results.
If you haven’t grilled pizza before, you should definitely give this a try.
I prefer using unbleached flour for my pizza dough because bleached flour has chlorine agents that remove nutrients such as beta-carotene from the dough. These natural nutrients add flavor, color, and more nutrition to your pizza crust. A little whole wheat flour results in a more robust and chewy crust.
I’ve been making my own pizzas at home for a couple of years now with very satisfying results. In the issue I was reading, an article titled “Perfecting Pepperoni Pan Pizza” caught my eye. A thin crust baked on a pizza stone is usually my go-to homemade pizza of choice because pan pizzas are usually doughy and too greasy. But according to this article, their version of the recipe solved those problems.
I figured I’d give it the recipe a try – with some modifications. I’m a big fan of Craig Priebe‘s method of grilling pizza. One of my favorite recipes of his is The Margheritan. Rather than go with pepperoni, I decided to top my pan pizza Margheritan-style. Aside from the use of fresh mozzarella and fresh basil, I followed the Cook’s Illustrated recipes for Pepperoni Pan Pizza (minus the pepperoni) and Basic Pizza Sauce.
Shown here are my finished pizzas. They were DELICIOUS.
