Grilled Tomato Basil Pizza

This is one of the those meals that you can pretty much adapt to anything you like.  We grill up individual pizzas often and adapt them to whatever toppings someone wants, or quite frankly, whatever is available in the fridge on a particular night.  This is also a great entertaining meal – have people build their own with fun toppings and different creations.  We are able to fit about 8 pizzas on our grill at one time so it goes rather quickly when feeding a larger crowd.  I unfortunately don’t have very specific measurements for this recipe so know that most are ballpark figures and that you should adapt it to your own taste preferences.

Grilled Tomato Basil Pizza

4 Pita bread rounds, not the pocket kind (we use whole wheat pitas)
1-2 Tbsp. olive oil
2 c. sliced cherry tomatoes
1/2 c. basil, chopped
1-2 c. grated Parmesan cheese

On each pita bread, drizzle olive oil and spread around.  Top each with desired amount of tomatoes, basil, and cheese.

Heat grill to medium-low heat.

Place pizzas on grill and turn heat down to low.  Grill for approximately 10-12 minutes or until cheese is melted and pizza is hot through.  Watch the pizzas carefully – if you cook them on too warm of a heat, they are burnt on the bottom and not hot on top.  A low temperature and patience is key to these pizzas.

Husband Rating: I forgot to ask… TBD

Food for Thought:  We use the pita bread to make all sorts of pizzas in the summer – pepperoni and green pepper, Hawaiian pizza, etc.  It works the same way as the Tomato Basil Pizza.  Simply top the pizzas as you want and cook them on low heat.  It may take a bit longer for you to cook them with more toppings but they turn out delicious and the kids love having their very own pizza, especially if we let them put the toppings on themselves!

These also work in the oven as well if it is winter or you don’t have a grill.  Simply bake them at 425 degrees for about 10-15 minutes or until hot through.  Again, an easy way to make individual pizzas that the kids love – great for toddler lunches!
