10 Foods You Would Never Think to Grill

Think outside the oven. Put that pizza on the grill!
Think outside the oven. Put that pizza on the grill!

Pizza is a party favorite, so why not serve it at a summer barbecue? You'll want to cook your crust first, then add toppings. You can use either a pizza stone or just set it directly on the grill grates. Close the grill top for thorough cooking. Thinner crusts tend to crisp up better, so try your hand at flatbread pizzas. One of the trickiest things can be getting the raw pizza off the cookie sheet and onto the grates. A little cornmeal sprinkled on the dough will loosen it up, or you can run a piece of dental floss under the crust.
