Grilled Pizza

I know what you're probably thinking...
Grilled pizza?
It's possible, easy, and oh so tasty.

Summer Grilled Pizza

- fresh pizza dough (got mine at Publix)
- extra virgin olive oil
- 1/2 red onion
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 2-3 T butter
- cherry tomatoes
- goat cheese
- fresh basil
- balsamic vinegar, reduced
- salt and pepper

Fire grill up to medium high heat. Roll out dough on a floured surface and brush with EVOO and salt and pepper both sides. In a sauce pan heat EVOO over medium heat and add garlic until fragrant. Throw in slivered onion and butter. Cook until brown and caramelized and set aside. In another small pot reduce 3/4 c balsamic vinegar over medium heat for about 10 minutes. Slice tomatoes and remove watery membrane. Throw pizza dough on the grill and cook for two minutes on each side and then remove from grill. Brush grilled pizza crust with some more EVOO and then assemble pizza. Layer tomatoes and caramelized onions on bottom then sprinkle goat cheese and drizzle balsamic reduction on top. Place pizza back on grill, cover and cook for 5 minutes. Garnish with fresh basil and a little extra balsamic and enjoy!

*This is definitely something I'm going to be trying again. I'm thinking a margarita pizza next, yum!
