Grilled Sicilian Pizza

Total Time
Prep 10 mins

Sicilians like their escarole sauteed with lots of olive oil and served with chewy bread to sop up the juices. This is a grilled adaptation of that idea! This is so good! It won't keep too long because of the greens, so eat it up! That won't be hard! Adapted from BH&G magazine.

  1. Top pizza crust with tomatoes, mozzarella cheese, and olives.
  2. Drizzle oil over all.

  7. Place pizza on the grill rack over the drip pan.

This pizza was amazingly good! We do LOTS of grilling but this was our first time attempting anything like a pizza and it was just fantastic. The smokiness of the grill really added something special to an already great combination of ingredients. We will definitely be doing this again - thanks for posting this winner!
