Gaëlle, our French student, (on the left) invited a few of her friends over for pizza. She didn't tell them they would be making their own pizzas. They have never done this before and had so much fun.
I made a batch of pizza dough using the Pioneer Woman's recipe. It's easy peasy and so reliable.
All they had to do was pull off a clump of dough and shape their pizza.
Their topping choices were pizza sauce, pesto, olive oil, ricotta, mozzarella, and Parmesan cheese, roasted red peppers, pepperoni, sausage, taco seasoned ground beef, tomatoes, olives, onion, arugula, and fresh basil.
Once the dough is shaped, (the heart shape was purely unintentional but I do love our students) the dough is placed on the grill over medium-high heat.
Grill on one side only, then remove from the grill. The toppings will be put on the already grilled side then put the dough back on the grill uncooked side down to finish cooking.
Return the topped pizzas to the grill, uncooked side down and continue grilling until cooked through and a bit crispy.
Yppie Skippie, not one pizza landed on the ground.
We had a real feast and it was fun trying everyone's creations.
This and a green salad was all we needed.
Later they gathered around the firepit and made S'mores. I heard they were up until 3:00 a.m. Love having them around.
And that's that!
