Pizza…On The GRILL!

Before I get to this fantastic dinner experiment tonight, first let me share with you my decadent Coffee Friday beverage…

It was a delicious Raspberry Iced Coffee with skim milk (not too much of it, just how I like it!  I hate when you can’t tell whether they just gave you a lot of skim milk or really cream) 😉

Don’t you love the super-cute coozie?  These are PERFECT for the warmer weather, since it keeps the cup from “sweating” all over the place! 🙂

OK, I’m not one to brag about my cooking skills very often, but I must say…this dinner was OUT-OF-THIS-WORLD! 😀

I bought some whole wheat pizza dough at the store over the weekend and planned on making some pizza during the week.  Since it was SO nice out today, I was really in the mood to use the grill.  So…pizza + grill…why not? 😉

First, I started by chopping up some veggies to roast in the oven.  Peppers, onions, halved cherry tomatoes, and broccoli.  Mixed with a little EVOO, S & P, and roasted in a 400 degree oven for about 15 minutes.

Then I split the dough into 2 to make “his” and “hers” pizzas.

Before putting anything on them, the dough went onto the grill (medium-high heat) for about 3 minutes; just enough time to get one side a little crispy.

Once, off the grill, it was time for the fun stuff! 😉

I started by brushing the grilled side of the dough with a little bit of garlic oil and a sprinkle of garlic powder.  Then I topped that with some diced tomatoes + Italian seasoning and a little grated Romano cheese.

Then it was time to separate the “guys” from the “gals”.  Cubed chicken for him, chopped fresh spinach for her.

After a little sprinkle of some part-skim mozzarella, it was time to add the veggies!  I took most of the broccoli & tomatoes, while he got most of the peppers & onions.

With another sprinkling of some mozzarella cheese & some dried basil, these puppies were ready to head back to the grill!

The excited chef! 😉

After only about 5-6 minutes, these babies were ready to go!

His + Hers

We both started with half of our pizzas…

And definitely went back for seconds.  We obviously had no problem dominating this stuff! 😉

The crust on this was amazing.  Chewy on the inside, crispy on the outside. 😀

Along with dinner, we both enjoyed a nice adult beverage to celebrate an end to our work week.  I first tried this beer a couple weeks ago and instantly fell IN LOVE with it!  My friends Eileen & Dan had brought it over a while back (January!), and I just ended up trying it last month.  I assumed, since they live about an hour away, that they bought it near them and I wouldn’t be able to find it.  WELL, wasn’t I psyched when Eileen told me she bought it at a store just down the road from MY house!?! 😀

The Blue Point Brewing Company brews a number of beers in addition to this Blueberry Ale.  I’m almost positive there will be another one (or two) of these consumed this evening!  Our friends Joe & Kate are coming over tonight to visit, and it’s always a fun time with those two! 🙂
