Flat Bread Pizza on Grill Grates
July 18, 2013
I had made some melted onion and tomato pizza sauce I wanted to try. I also just got my Grill Grates to try pizza on for the first cook. I used two savory garlic and herb flatbreads I thawed out. They were partially baked.
This afternoon I seasoned the Grill Grated sprayed with olive oil while cooking a ham to make ham salad.
My toppings were Italian sausage, red and green peppers, onions and mushrooms with shredded cheddar and mozzarella cheese.
I put the Grill Grates on my Traeger with the bottom, flat side up, and set to 350 deg. I let it heat up for a half hour. The flat breads were on for 15 minutes and looked done. Using the bottom of the grill grates is like cooking on a flat frill.
I liked the pizza sauce and the crust was a nice even brown color. My wife thought the sauce needed a more tomato taste. I may add some tomato paste to what is left and freeze for later.
I really need to make my own pizza crust and try just a pepperoni and cheese pizza to get a feel for how the sauce tastes. I also need to have my son and his wife try it; they are my official tasters.
A layer of cheese, then the veggies
Some Italian sausage added then some more cheese
