Grilled Bacon and Red Onion Pizza

Ingredients

  • Refrigerated pizza dough
  • 1/2 red onion, sliced thin
  • 1 4 oz packed fresh mozzarella, sliced
  • Fresh basil
  • 6 slices bacon, chopped
  • 1-2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 3-4 roma tomatoes, sliced thin

Directions

  • Cook bacon and crumble.  Here’s the instructions to cook bacon in the oven.  Have you ever done it that way?
  • Preheat grill to medium heat.
  • Roll out refrigerated pizza dough according to directions.  I usually split the dough into personal pizza size so every family member can add their own toppings.
  • Before placing on the grill, rub olive oil on one side of the dough so it won’t stick.
  • Place dough on grill for about 3-5 minutes.  Take off and flip over onto plate, grill marks up.
  • Rub chopped garlic onto pizza crust.  Add tomatoes, red onions, bacon, mozzarella, and basil.  (I like to use a zester for garlic.  It makes it very find and easy to spread.)
  • Place back on grill for 5-10 minutes or until done.

NOTE:  We like our pizza crust thick.  If you like yours thin, it won’t take as long to cook.

ENJOY!
