Summer Party ~ Pizza On The Grill

Pizza Grilled
A LoveFeast Table summer party go-to, is baking pizza on the grill.  We have found that fresh and delicious prepped ahead toppings and good, ready-to-bake pizza crust are all you need to pull together a delicious foodie feast.  With a little prep, no dishes to do with the cooking done on the grill, there is more time to savor with your friends and family.

Planning ahead to please the crowd is a great way to make sure your party gets off to a great start.  Thinking ahead about the needs of both adults and children will make sure everyone feels special and planned for.

This plan is an easy entertaining way to celebrate Mother’s Day.  Just make sure Mom is enjoying a refreshing drink, a chair and doesn’t have to slice her own pizza!

Thinking ahead and adding small touches will make your party feel more relaxed, festive, and hospitable to your friends and family.

Here are some party planning ideas:

Fill Steel buckets filled with ice cold beverages with one in mind for adults and one in mind for kids.  

Prep a picnic table with easy garden flower filled mason jars to top tables layered with  burlap or bright fabric straight from the bolt. 

Prep ahead small toy favors, a tray of bubbles, chalk, yo-yos, jump ropes, beach balls for the kids.  This will get everyone excited and comfortable right from the start.  Bigger kids can help younger, and adults can enjoy some conversation.

Gathering together to choose your own pizza toppings as part of the gatherings festivities.  Every one young and old, can choose their own pizza toppings.  The conversation around the table is part of the fun. 

 

We hope these tips inspire you to make a Pizza on the Grill Party one of your summer get-togethers.

Here is a list of some of our pizza topping ideas and some easy directions on how to make Pizza On The Grill.

 

Grilled Pizza Recipe

1 pizza dough from Trader Joes (or make your own ~ we found it just as good and easier to buy)

Assortment of Ingredients:

Sun-dried tomatoes, Oven roasted tomatoes, Fresh tomatoes, Arugula, Fresh basil, Fresh Mozzarella, Parmigiano Reggiano, Raw Onions, Caramelized Onions, Mushrooms, Roasted Red Peppers, Artichoke Hearts, Olives, Pizza sauce, Garlic cream sauce, Italian Sausage (pre cooked), Marinated Flank Steak (pre grilled)These are some of our favorites…but there are so many more to use!

1. Fire up the grill, get it good and hot.

2. Roll out and slap out, Trader Joe’s Pizza Dough to desired size.

3. Have all your ingredients handy right by the grill.

4. Place dough on oiled grill for 3-5 minutes.

5. Flip the dough, add the ingredients you want on top, close the lid to your grill and cook another 3-5 minutes.

6. Pull pizza off the grill and slice.

Sometimes for dinner parties, we cut dough into thirds, give every guest their own pizza dough, they go down an assembly line picking out their ingredients and stand next to the grill man (or lady) to help make their own individual. This is a huge crowd pleaser!

We think a Grilled Pizza Party is the perfect way to enjoy a day of grilling with friends.  It would make a great Mother’s Day gathering as well.  We hope these tips help you enjoy a beautiful day savoring time with family and friends.
