Pizza Payment



What a great weekend. Several months ago we had a new 8’ cedar fence installed in our back yard and our beautiful daughter and her boyfriend told us that they would be happy to stain it for us when we were ready. All we would need to do was buy the stain. Of course we jumped at the offer since aside from being an Elementary School Teacher she also has her own landscaping business on the side and has stained many a fence (well...and it would save me a whole lot of money)


Well after weeks of delays due to rains (which we desperately needed) they took on the monumental task today. After 9 grueling hours they were finished...and we were very.....very pleased.

   Seeing how hard they were working I offered up anything they wanted for dinner. Would you believe all they wanted was some of my homemade grilled pizza. You don’t have to ask me twice to fire up the grill.

   The first was a basic pepperoni pizza with fresh Mozzarella and Asiago cheeses, Garlic, Pepperoni, some Italian seasonings and fresh Basil.

   The second was pretty much the same except I also added some Ham and Red Bell Pepper.

  Most of the time I use a pizza stone on the grill which is preheated for about 15 minutes. My particular grill has 4 burners which run top to bottom instead of left to right. I like this configuration better since I can preheat my stone on high heat, then shut down or drastically lower the two middle burners a few minutes prior to putting the pizza on it. This will give you a nice crisp crust without burning.
