Grilled Pizza! Amazing!

I just love grilling pizza. The crust is so crisp. We brush one side of the crust with olive oil and put the oiled side down on the grill. Once it is done we remove the crust, brush oil on the uncooked side and put our toppings on the cooked side. Back on the grill until the underside is crisp and the cheese on top is melted. The aroma of the grilling dough is wonderful. It reminds me of the school carnival when I was in grade school. Zuppardi's use to run the fried dough stand. Talk about food memories!

For toppings we cleaned out the fridge. The grilled eggplant and grilled yellow squash were from the other night. I did not do a post for that dinner. And the zucchini flowers I picked up at Bishop's Orchards. Goat cheese, shredded Mozzarella and of course Parmesan.

And speaking of the school carnival, I found a photo of my Mom at the St. Lawrence School Carnival with my brother's three children. The year was 1979!

looks wonderful... you have a lot of the same memories as I do. I always love to read your past stories. I also remember the zucchini flowers and have never made them. I really would love to have them again. Growing old sucks just so glad to have the experience of growing up in an Italian family. Watching all the seasons of the Sopranos again. makes me smile with a lot of the food similarities.. thanks great post!
