Grilled Pesto and Mozzarella Pizza

Authentic Italian-style pizzerias rely on scorching-hot wood-fired ovens to give pies their one-of-a-kind flavor and texture. Re-create that smoky, wood-fired flavor at home by cooking your pizza on the grill. The dough stays moist inside and char-grilled and crisp on the bottom, while the hot, bubbly cheese and toppings gain a distinct smoky essence.

The hardest part is letting it marinate for 15 minutes before you eat it.Mozzarella-Tomato-Salad
