    LOLOLOL - that was so funny, jdouglas!

    Meredith - I have not cooked the actual dough on the grill so no personal advice there. I would think it would be quite messy and ooze through through the grates unless you use a grill proof pan. Sorry I am not more help on this one.

    I did a search for "How to cook pizza dough on grill" and there were a bunch of responses. If I were you, that's where I would start. :-)

    Anyone else cook pizza dough on the grill??

    Faye, that watermelon gazpacho is a bit too funky for me! J would think I was trying to poison her lol ;)

    But, who knew the naughty pups would enjoy watermelon so much??hahahahaha...

    Well I had the last of the chicken pot pie for lunch today and the boys polished off the meat pie last night. So I am not sure, maybe spaghetti. But we will definately have the baked peaches I didn't do last night.

    Dinner for us may involve pesto as I have an alarming amount of basil ready to bolt in the garden. What exactly that will be is TBD.

    Meredith, I have not done pizza on the grill myself, but there are a lot of instructions on the Internet for it. Basically, I think the grill needs to be well oiled. You cook one side on the grates, flip it over, put your toppings on the cooked (now upright) side, and when the dough is cooked through, you're done.

    There are other ways too using a pizza stone, in which case it's more of a baking process. I don't think you need to flip it.

    Again, I'm just passing on what I've read and am no expert on grilled pizza! I have been wanting to try it, though, so please report back how it worked out for you. :)

    We still don't have our kitchen remodel done so no stove or oven, however we did get more gas for the grill so we've used that every night this week! Tonight we are making home made pizzas with a dough ball from HT on sale weeks ago, onions, peppers and spinach from Aldi that past two weeks and cheese from HT B2G3 a couple months ago.

    Faye, I wanted to ask your opinion on cooking with the dough ball on a grill. Have you done it? I use your directions for cooking with them in the oven and it works great but if anyone has suggestions how to do it on the grill I'll take all the advice I can get ;)
