Grilled pizza is one of the reasons summer was invented, in my opinion. We all love pizza any which way, brick oven, wood burning oven, thin, thick. Even bad pizza is good pizza. But if you’ve never made grilled pizza you are in for a huge treat, and if you make it once, be prepared to make it again – it’s a serious crowd pleaser. My kids ask for it as often as they can. Store-bought pizza dough makes this a very doable weeknight dinner.
Buffalo Chicken, Blue Cheese and Spinach Grilled Pizza
Buffalo chicken wings rank up there with the country’s most popular bar snacks and we don’t have to tell you why. So, why not take those flavors and slather them over a grilled pizza? Are you in? Of course you are.

Roasted Tomato, Leek and Mozzarella Grilled Pizza
Katie WorkmanInstead of tomato sauce, or raw tomatoes, try roasted tomatoes for a change, and some nice rich concentrated fresh tomato flavor. Sautéed leeks provide a subtle hint of oniony flavor, and fresh mozzarella a beautiful creamy and melty finish.

3 Olive, 3 Onion, and 3 Cheese Grilled Pizza
Katie WorkmanThis is a fully loaded pie, but well worth every single ingredient, and very bit of indulgence. You can use different members of the onion family, different cheeses, and any combo of olives you like (there are many pitted olive combos available at supermarket and specialty food store olive bars). If you want more of a traditional pizza, you can brush the dough with sauce before adding the toppings, but you can also go for the toppings on their own – there’s no shortage of flavor in this grilled pizza. Skip the salt: there’s plenty in the olives and the cheese.
