Y ou’re basking in sunlight. You’re rocking a novelty American flag tank top. And your fictional golden retriever, Johnny Rico, is doing backflips to impress your cute neighbor who was drawn to the intoxicating smoky aroma coming from your yard. Grilling season is the true most wonderful time of the year.
But all too often, we take the road most traveled and relegate our grills to steaks, or burgers, or sausages, forgetting the Wild West, pioneer, messing-around mentality that makes cooking outside so fun. Life’s too short to be basic and obvious. I urge you -- no I challenge you -- to get weird and throw some pizza on the grill this summer.
Grilling pizza isn’t easy, but nothing worth the effort (except for Easy Mac) ever is. The difficulty of pulling off a perfectly grilled pizza is what makes the end result so rewarding, and when you taste that deliciously char-kissed crust, you forget about any of the hardships along the way.
