Roasted Red Pepper Pesto Grilled Pizza #Recipe

 

Thank heavens Pillsbury Classic Pizza Crusts inspired me to try my hand at creating a grilled pizza… because truly, I had no idea what an incredible treat we were missing.  Grilled pizza crust turns out divine – just the right crispness and amazing flavor!

Of course, it helps to start with a great crust, and the Pillsbury Artisan Pizza Crust with Whole Grain is just the ticket.  Add a few primo, fresh ingredients and you have the makings of a truly delightful gourmet meal.

Roasted Red Pepper Pesto Grilled Pizza Recipe

Ingredients

  • Pillsbury Artisan Pizza Crust with Whole Grain
  • 1 Red Pepper, roasted and sliced (bell or long variety)
  • Buffalo Mozzerela, sliced thin
  • 1 Roma Tomato, diced
  • 4 ounces Pesto, (processed or homemade variety)
  • Olive Oil

Instructions

  1. At any time prior to creating pizza, roast red pepper in oven. Or optionally if you’d like a faster version, saute in a skillet or on the grill with drizzle of olive oil. (Tip: A few times a year, I roast 10-12 red peppers and then store them in freezer bags for quick use in recipes.)
  2. In a small bowl, mix pesto with 1 tablespoon of olive oil to thin.
  3. Preheat grill to a medium heat.
  4. Roll out pizza dough onto a sheet of heavy duty foil.
  5. Brush a light layer of canola oil on grill grate.
  6. Gently invert the pizza dough onto the grill rack and peel off the foil.
  7. Cook pizza dough until the bottom is fully cooked and lightly browned.
  8. Flip pizza dough over. Add preferred toppings.
  9. Continue to cook pizza until bottom crust is browned and toppings are cooked/cheese melted to desired consistency.

Grilled Pizza Crust

Once pizza crust is ready for toppings, use a basting brush to spread pesto evenly across the top crust, leaving a small edge around the outside.

Place mozzarella slices on crust, leaving approximately a one-inch space between slices.  Spread roasted red pepper and tomatoes evenly over the pizza.

Heat for 2-3 minutes or until cheese is melted.

Remove pizza from grill, slice and enjoy!
