  1. I can’t wait to experiment with pizza on the grill this summer! Love everything you put on this one. I’m looking forward to meeting you at the ZipList party at BlogHerFood next week! So excited!

    • Thanks for your comment, Lori. Can’t wait to meet you, either! We’re super pumped about BlogHer Food, too…it’s going to be so much fun!

  2. I saw this pizza on Instagram and had to check it out. It looks amazing and I’m with you that having a salad on your pizza is super yummy! It also makes dinner easy because you have everything you need right there on your pizza. No side salad is required. I’m also loving your pizza stone. I need to get me one of those since we’re a pizza making and pizza loving household lately. Have fun at the blogher food conference. I can’t wait to hear what you guys learn there. xoxo, Jackie

    • Hi Kelli, do you have a pizza peel? I’ve found that’s the easiest way to slide the unbaked pizza onto the stone. They aren’t terribly expensive, and they make great serving pieces, too!

    • If you dont have a pizza peel you can use parchment paper and slide the pizza and paper off your board onto the pizza stone. If you dont have a pizza stone, carefully put just your dough on the grill and cook for a few min. Then add you topping and finish cooking. To take it off i use a large spatula a slide it on to a pan.
