If you have ever been asked the question what is your favorite meal? If you had one last meal to eat what would it be? If you over think this question you undoubtably will have an endless list of great foods and dishes you love from decadent chocolate desserts, grilled steak, large bowl of ice cream, pasta...
When I don't overthink this question the first thing that comes to my mind as being the last meal would be pizza and a glass/bottle of wine. There is something about the flavors of pizza that keeps you going back for more and more even though you know you are more than full.
The great thing about pizza is you can put whatever ingredients you desire on it. Myself, I love meditarranean flavors. I usually make my own dough, but recently tried this indian flatbread from President's Choice and love it. Cooks well on the BBQ.
1. What would be your last meal?
2. What are your favorite pizza toppings?
My Favorite Ingredients
1 stonebaked flatbread (indian flatbread or homemade pizza dough)
homemade pizza sauce
homemade basil pesto
zucchini, sliced thinly
cherry tomatoes, halved
white mushrooms, sliced thinly
red onion, diced
red pepper, diced
sundried tomatoes (did not have any this time)
black or kalmata olives, whole (pitted)
Spread a light amount of pesto on the crust. Then spread a desired amount of tomato sauce over the crust (i like lots). Then add your toppings.
Preheat grill to high until 500F. Then shut one side off and turn the other side of the grill to low. When the temp is at 400F turn the one sid eup to about med or low-med and maintain the heat.
Place the pizza directly on the BBQ on the side that is not on, and cook using indirect heat for about 10-15 minutes (crust crispy and toppings cooked).
Then to broil the pizza on a top rack (if have one) - crank both sides of the BBQ to 500F and let broil until browned and cheese melted, about 5 mins.
