Grilled Pizzas are the Easiest Summer Dinner
Make them outside on the grill or over the stove on a grill pan!
Have you tried your hand at homemade pizza yet? From professional-grade pizza ovens like the Pizzaiolo from Breville, to outdoor, wood- and charcoal-fired ovens like the Ooni, there are plenty of gadgets that recreate restaurant-worthy pizza in your own home. But, if you’re not looking to invest such a specific appliance, we suggest turning to the grill (both indoor and outdoor) to craft pizza with a thin, crisp crust and personalized toppings this summer.
During Larisa Alvarez’s class for Grilled Shrimp Pizza on the Food Network Kitchen app, she uses a grill pan on the stove, but this dish can be just as easily duplicated outdoors on a standard grill. This pizza comes together in just 35 minutes, and the ingredients list for this recipe couldn’t be easier.
Larisa starts by tossing the shrimp with sliced onion, olive oil and oregano before grilling. Since you’re going to bake your pizza (or let sit with the cover on a standard grill), you only want to get some nice color on both sides of the shrimp, using them to top your pizza. Next, she stretches prepared pizza dough at room temperature with olive oil and adds it to the grill pan until bubbles start to appear on top. After adding the shrimp and onion mixture, feta and tomatoes to the cooked side of the crust, she pops it in the oven for just long enough for the cheese to melt.
During the class, Larisa also ensures that substitutions like pre-cooked cocktail shrimp and naan are perfect for this dish and can even cut back on some of your cooking time. And, if you’re taken aback by the lack of sauce on this pizza — hear us out: The moisture in the tomatoes and creaminess of the melted feta create the texture of sauce, so you won't even miss it. You’ll love the rustic style of this pizza and how easily you can make it at home.
