Thanks to everyone who used our recipe builder to Create Your Own Grilled Pizza. Your creative grilled pizzas were the perfect antidote for anyone stuck in a plain-cheese rut. You showed us that with a little imagination (who says figs are just for tarts?) the grilled pizza possibilities are endless.
Here are our top 10 stand-out, gotta-make-this-ourselves grilled pizzas. Please vote for your favorite using the poll below.
|Rivi’s Huevos Rancheros is our kind of breakfast pizza: eggs, bacon, sauce, cheddar, avocado, and sour cream.||This Duck Proscuitto & Leerdammer Cheese Pizza by Jaclyne, won major points for its creativity and delicious-looking photography.|
|Featuring Canadian bacon; Capicola ham; pancetta; and of course, mushrooms, Schu1266’s The Meaty Mushroom is more than your average meat-lovers’ pie.||Peskyone’s Sally’s Spanish Pizza, with its free-form, whole wheat and cornmeal crust got the attention of our editors.|
|Not only was SarahJB’s recipe for Proscuitto, Goat Cheese & Caramelized Fennel Jam Pizza creative, the finished pizza was also gorgeous and the photos showed us how it all came together.||Arogers229’s Grilled Mushroom Pizza Recipe features field mushrooms, Cipolline onions, rosemary, bacon, and parmigiano.|
|Ackernackt’s Grilled Chicken White Sauce Grilled Pizza included artichoke hearts, green and black olives, peppercinis, and a three-cheese mix of mozzarella, provolone, and feta.||Jhalsall1’s Has’s German Pizza Pie is the perfect pizza for your Octoberfest celebration.|
|Npetruz calls his Pizza with Caramelized Figs, Prosciutto, and Heirloom Tomatoes, “Heaven on a plate.” We agree.||A classic pie, like Kristia’s Simply Delicious is the perfect way to showcase a flavorful homemade sauce.|
We’re going to tally the poll results on Friday, October 2, 2009 and award the lucky winner a KitchenAid stand mixer and a collection of Taunton Press cookbooks, including Pizza on the Grill by Elizabeth Karmel and Bob Blumer, Grillin’ with Gas by Fred Thompson, Absolutely Chocolate by the Editors of Fine Cooking, and Beef by John Torode.
As usual, we were impressed by entries from Denise Jones (Grilled Antipasto Pizza) and NJacobsons (FC-Inspired House Special), but since both have won previous gallery contests, neither was selected in our top 10. Ladies, please continue to inspire us with your work. We really appreciate it!
