Why throw pizza on the grill? Well, because 1) it just tastes good and, 2) you’ll be a hero. How’s that you ask? When the barbecue grill gets fired up there will inevitably be someone who shies away from hamburgers, those who pass on the hot dogs and that girl who thinks ribs are “too messy.” Pizza’s the common denominator. Everybody loves it. With its seemingly endless combinations of toppings, it’s the most versatile food there is and caters to the most discerning of palates. It’s a crowd-pleaser -- and when you’re entertaining, that’s your main job: keeping your guests happy.
What else makes pizza on the grill ideal? You can do it anywhere: Tailgating before the game, camping with your boys or just unwinding in your backyard. Also, grilled pizzas are thinner, crispier and not as overwhelmingly filling as their doughy, oven-baked brethren, which leaves you more room to do the one thing you love doing when you’re waiting for the game to start, out in the woods or relaxing in your yard.
