Dealing with the Texas summer can be a frustrating battle in many ways but the one that has been effecting me the most lately is our food budget. We live in an old house that is very poorly insulated so my air conditioning unit can’t keep the house below 83 during the day and turning our gas stove has just become not even an option. So we have been eating out more often then I can remember us ever doing. So I have had to get creative. Our charcoal grill has become my kitchen and I have tried to find unique ways to use it.
So I had this idea of making a pizza on the grill, on first thought it seemed rather original but after a quick browse on the internet I found that not to be so. But that is the beauty of the internet we read about other people’s experiences and we try and take from it and learn. So I set about creating my grilled pizza.
The dough: Well for me that was the easy part because I had a favorite whole wheat pizza dough recipe from Beth Hensperger’s book The Bread Lover’s Bread Machine Cookbook. I altered the recipe to accommodate those without a bread machine.
