Pizza With Honey Bourbon Sauce

Pizza With Honey Bourbon Sauce

I discovered how easy it is to grill pizza several years ago and I've made so many different combinations since! It's a great way to clean out the frig and use bits and pieces left over too. 

It's an easy process especially if you take a simple shortcut of buying fresh pizza dough. I get mine from the local pizza shop- most are happy to sell you just the dough ball. If you are going gluten free there are several gluten free pizza doughs that will work and of course the sauces are gluten free. 

I usually get a large pizza dough ball and divide it into 4 sections. Flour your counter top just enough so that the dough doesn't stick. I stretch the dough out by hand then finish with a rolling pin. I've never been good at "tossing" pizza dough!

Heat your grill using the low setting. Brush olive oil on one side. Place dough directly on grill oiled side down. As is cooks bubbles will form- this is fine. Grill to desired crispness. This will be the side the toppings go on. When done, remove from grill with side without the  oil up.

Now the fun begins. Brush the side without oil with oil and flip over. You are now ready to start building your creation! I start with sauce, my usual go to is Honey Bourbon Sauce. It's garlic, smokey flavor is perfect with most veggie and meat pizzas. Apple Rum Sauce is another great choice for meat pizzas.

 Start with spreading a thin layer of sauce. Follow up with shredded cheese. My fav is a combo of mozzarella, monterey jack and cheddar but you can use whatever you like. Then pile on the toppings. You can use just about anything- hamburger, sausage, bacon, ham, chicken, onions, red onions, peppers, mushrooms, spinach, whatever you want! I do a ham and pineapple one and use Pineapple Bourbon Sauce. So good! Don't forget to top off with more shredded cheese.

Once you have your toppings return the pizza to the grill. Depending on your heat it should only take about 10 minutes to brown the bottom and melt the cheese.

 Why not set up a pizza topping station with a variety of meats, veggies, cheeses and let everyone make their own unique grilled pizza!
