Easy Dinner Idea: Grilled Pizza with Basil, Mushrooms and Mini Pepperoni

June 29, 2010


I recently saw a pizza grill pan last week in the window at The Cook Store, a wonderful neighborhood cooking store where I live. I thought to myself, “I want that!”. I received one for a present shortly thereafter, and I was very excited (thanks @jon_lewistwitter handle). I used it the other night when I was in a pinch as I was testing recipes for my upcoming book (Chipotle Pork Wraps with Slaw). ┬áMy kids didn’t want that for dinner so I threw this Grilled Pizza with Basil, Mushrooms and Mini Turkey Pepperoni together for them. I ended up eating both (of course) because it turned out so great!

Grilled Pizza with Basil, Mushrooms and Mini Turkey Pepperoni

Prep: 10 minutes
Cook: 10 minutes
Yield: 6 servings
1 (12-inch) thin or traditional pizza crust (I like Mama Marys)
1 tablespoon olive oil
3/4 cup marinara or pizza sauce
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup mini pepperoni slices
1/2 (8-ounce) container sliced fresh mushrooms
3 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
1 Crushed red pepper flakes, Parmesan cheese (optional)
1. Preheat grill to medium-high heat.

2. Place pizza crust on pizza grill pan. Drizzle olive oil over pizza crust. Spread with marinara and top with cheese, pepperoni, mushrooms and basil.

3. Cook on preheated grill over indirect heat 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly browned and cheese is melted. Top with red pepper flakes and Parmesan, if desired.
