Roasted Garlic Grilled Pizza



This recipe is absolutely perfect for impressing any woman in your life.  Before you grill the pizza you will need to roast garlic, saute the onions, and saute the broccoli.  The real secret is buying your pizza dough fresh from any locally owned pizza shop.  Their dough is much better than your homemade (or store bought) dough will ever be, and generally will only cost you $1-$2 for a 16 inch pizza’s worth.

Note:  Do not use extra virgin olive oil.  Use regular olive oil.  Extra virgin olive oil burns at a very low temperature and will ruin the garlic and pizza



1 Ball Pizza Dough (Purchased from any local pizza shop)

1 Head Roasted Garlic

1 Heads Broccoli

1/4 lb Mozzarella

1 medium spanish onion

Kosher Salt (to taste)

Broccoli (to taste)


Directions:  Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Chop top off garlic head, drizzle with olive oil and salt, wrap tightly in aluminum foil.  Let roast for 1 hour.  Slice onions and roughly chop broccoli.  Saute in two different pans, until  onions are sweet and caramelized, and until broccoli is crispy and caramelized.  The onions will need olive oil and salt, the broccoli will need olive oil, salt, and a few pinches of sugar to caramelize.

Preheat the grill to 350 Degrees.  Roll out pizza dough.  Coat both sides in olive oil.  When grill is preheated, carefully place pizza dough on grill, and let cook (1-2 minutes) until well marked and crispy.  Pull pizza dough off and flip over so the cooked side is up.  On the cooked side, spread roasted garlic, broccoli, caramelized onions, and mozzarella cheese.  Place uncooked side of pizza back directly on the grill, and cook until well marked and crispy, 4-5 minutes.  Cool on wire rack 5 minutes and serve.
