Growing up in New England as many of my regular visitors will realize I have, one thing you know and know well is seafood. What you may not know is that it can be used on pizza to make a distinct pizza combination that will give you a nice change from the normal pepperoni and cheese or whatever combo you are use to. Most people don’t first go to seafood when thinking pizza and another thing many don’t come up with first is making pizza on the grill.
The grill is actually the perfect way to cook pizza it develops nice high dry heat which is ideal for making pizza, and in fact there are grill companies that have specifically developed modifications for normal grills to make them into pizza ovens because it is so perfect in many ways for pizza making. We have been making pizza on the grill for years and let me tell you it is a wonderful change of pace from the normal oven made kind. Now one of the drawbacks to our area is we are limited to the warmer months for doing this not February.
Now you don’t need anything to special to be able to use the grill for pizza a regular grill with a lid will work it might take a bit of setting up but any grill can be made into a pizza oven. I would recommend a stone that is flame resistant as a stone will make the most of the grill for pizza cooking. I am a huge fan of stoneware in general it is so nice at cooking something you cannot quite achieve with any other cooking material.
Now that I have introduced you to the grill for pizza and seafood as a topping combo now you have a whole new realm of possibilities for your next pizza adventure. There are plenty of different combos of seafood you can use and like any other meat pizza you can mix it with different veggie combos for an even broader range of trooping ideas. Things like mushrooms, peppers, onions, and even pineapple make wonderful additions to any seafood pizza. You can also use red sauce like on a regular pizza or the white sauce depending on your choice of toppings either will work well.
