The Grilled Pizza Party

To finish off the Week of Food, I present to you the Grilled Pizza Party.

For the last 5 years, a friend and his wife have hosted a grilled pizza party. The structure of the party has changed over the years, but basically each guest gets to make their own pizza with a wide variety of ingredients, and Sean (my friend) grills the pizza.

If you’ve never had grilled pizza, you have to try it. It’s amazing. The dough rises really quickly in the heat, and it has this nice crispy exterior. I literally ate my entire pizza in about 30 minutes; in fact, I was still full 6 hours later at dinner time.

Words cannot suffice how awesome this whole concept is, so here are some photos to describe it better:

First, pick your dough.

Second, smother one side with olive oil and put it on the grill.

  1. Schonell Pizza make the best pizzas I’ve ever had. They’re a local grilled pizza joint and the most surprising thing is, it’s located inside a university. My friends and I used to eat there once a week. Now, most of these friends have moved to different states but we still try and eat there whenever they visit Brisbane.

    They have fancy names for their pizzas; check their menu out: https://www.schonell.com/filelib/PizzaCaffe_Pizza_Menu_16May14_v1.pdf

    We usually get the “Histories Extraordinaires” (anchovies) and “Juliette of the Spirits” (prosciutto crudo). If we’re feeling particularly hungry and are in need of some comfort food, we’d also get “Lollobrigida” (4 different types of cheese).

  2. When David and I want to do something super fancy for brunch we do a grilled breakfast pizza. On the grill, we crack a few eggs and those kind of make the “sauce” and then add on Parmesan cheese, green onions, arugula, and bacon. It is fantastic! The eggs are nice and runny and the other flavors just balance each other out.
