Pizzas on a grill? Is that even possible? With these Grilled Personal Pizzas, it sure is!
In many ways, Grilled Personal Pizzas are like a party: the smaller and more intimate they are, the better you can enjoy them! What’s great about making these pizzas is that their size makes them super easy to put together without you having to worry about making a mess. They’re also delightfully crispy and smoky, and pretty fun to make, especially when you flip the crusts over the grill!
Of course, you’ll find a lot of pizza staples on the ingredient list such as whole tomatoes, tomato sauce, oregano, olive oil, mozzarella, and pizza cheese. You’ll also be adding some white wine and unsalted butter to give your pizza sauce a nice texture and a subtle kick in flavor. With these, you’ll have that signature tangy-salty taste of pizza with an extra side of yumminess that has made it a favorite snack for many.
Thinly sliced heirloom tomatoes also give your Grilled Personal Pizzas some added flavor and a refreshing crunch. Fresh oregano topping your pizza lends that nice balance between spicy and sweet, letting you indulge in that subtle but earthy taste that’s also divinely aromatic. With the host of garden goodies featured, who’s not to say that pizzas aren’t veggies?
You’ll know your Grilled Personal Pizzas are done when the cheese is nicely melted and the crust is delightfully golden-brown. They may be smaller than the average pizza, but they’re definitely big on taste!
With delicious flavors and colorful ensembles, these Grilled Personal Pizzas will surely be a hit at kids’ parties or lunch gatherings with family and friends!Print
