Reviewed Grilled Pizza -Three Ways

Sep 13, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Perfect tomato sauce recipe . I already had dough but followed the grilling instructions. Grilled pizza is the best!! I roll my dough(with a little olive ) between 2 pieces of parchment paper, remove top piece then just flip it over onto the grill and remove second piece and grill as instructed. No sticking to grill grates no matter how thin I ro"

Super easy, very good. I made 1/2 the recipe, 12 mini muffins, using the Reynolds foil muffin liners (which don't require a muffin tin and are slightly larger than minis). After reading the reviews I decreased salt to 1/4 tsp, and used buttermilk instead of whole milk (because I had it on hand) and an extra pinch of honey. Baked only 10-11 minutes"

So simple and so good. I followed recipe, including cocktail sauce, exactly. The Tabasco sauce gives it just the right amount of heat. I did however place parchment paper on my baking sheet for even easier clean up. Trying to convince others to use this technique."

I like the concept of the little pizzas. I made the 2 inch circles then brushed with blue cheese dressing. Topped with small pieces boneless Buffalo chicken and cheddar cheese. Baked as directed. A ton of different little pizzas can be made at the same time. A hit for kids."

Extremely easy and very good!! I did use bacon instead of pork and a combination of 1 cup heavy cream, 1/2cup half and half and 1/2 cup whole milk to total 2 cups. I like it a bit thicker so didn't use 3 cups. (Also wanted to use up my heavy cream and whole milk). I think I will stick with this combination in the future. Thanks for great recipe!!"

Super easy and light in texture. (Same recipe found elsewhere, only self-rising flour was used therefore omitting the need for the baking powder and salt). Pour the heavy cream in gradually while mixing dough. Dough comes together very nicely and requires very minimal kneading. Made 10 biscuits with 3" cutter. I put in refrigerator for 30 minutes"

Very pleased with this recipe. I have made it several times though either increased the spices or added an additional teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice because it does need more flavor. I used a mini muffin tin and it makes 24. The kids loved them as well as the 18 month old. Great with butter!"
