First grilled pizza in twenty years
« on: June 02, 2021, 01:46:10 PM »
I just made my first grilled pizza in twenty years, and the first time I have used a stone on the grill rather than the method detailed in Weberís book, of putting the dough directly onto the grate and cooking both sides before adding toppings.

I used store-bought dough, and toppings were Muir Glen Fire-Roasted crushed tomatoes to which I added fresh minced garlic, ground black pepper, and dried basil. I sprinkled homegrown dried oregano over the top, along with olive oil, grated Romano, andóbecause we discovered we were unexpectedly out of mozzósliced provolone. It didnít come out to New Haven standards, but it was quite good and I learned a few things. Once I get my technique down, Iím going to attempt a New Haven-style white clam pie. (Iíve already been scouting out littlenecks.)

It was good, but I must do better, or else the ghost of my great-grandmother Trofimena will come down and whack me with a wooden spoon. :) According to what my grandfather told me, after they arrived in New Haven from Italy in 1916, she used to make apizza in her kitchen and send my grandfather out into the streets to sell them, before Frank Pepe opened his famous pizzeria.

Very coolÖ..my wife is second generation Italian American and her Mamalina (grandmother) made pizza with olive oil, sardines and shaved Parmesan ONLY.  More of a Sicilian style being from Sicily.  Itís the only way some of her uncles would eat or make pizza.  Iíve never had it this way, but I would try it if she decided to make it.

Pizza looks good, and from personal history wooden spoons wielded by Italian grandmothers hurt !
