Grilled Meditaranean Pizza

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.

Two Questions:

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)
feta crumbled

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.

It was great pizza.

I would have to say my favorite pizza toppings are, mushrooms, red onion, our homemade sauce, cherry tomatoes, hot and sweet peppers and low-fat turkey sausage grilled before sliced.

As for my last meal that is such a hard one first thing that comes to mind is a massive bowl of extremely spicy arrabiata pasta with sausage a glass of wine and a few lagers for dessert.

My last meal would be a plate of spanakopita, dolmades and corn on the cob----better throw in some garden tomatoes too for good measure. My favourite pizza toppings are basil and 3 cheese:D

WOW that pizza looks fabulous - yum!!

Oooh, great questions!! Here's my answers:

1.) My last meal would be EVERY SINGLE ONE of my favorite fruits and vegetables, as well as some of my favorite baked goods that I have made - fresh right out of the oven, of course :0)

2.) My favorite pizza toppings are portabello mushrooms, homemade, spicy tomato sauce, broccoli, roasted garlic and red onions (don't come near me after I eat pizza, haha), and a sprinkling of fresh basil.

I agree, there's something about pizza that makes you keep going back! As for your questions hmm. Favourite pizza toppings are potato, roasted garlic, caramelized onions, and aged white cheddar. No idea for last meal - maybe a big bowl of summer fruits, stuffed pasta with a white wine cream sauce, and some kind of yummy bread.
