On the evening of our celebration of our 8th anniversary, we found ourselves in our hotel room watching “Good Eats” on the Food Network. Yes, I know, how insanely romantic of us! The reality is that when you live pretty simply, dinner out (minus kids), a movie (at the theater??? they still have those???), and cable make for a pretty good night. So there we were, watching, totally mesmerized as Alton Brown taught us how to make pizza on our grill.
Here is the recipe.
And Friday night, we made this dream a reality.
After flipping the dough, we added the tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, Parmesan, and fresh basil from a friend’s garden. Then it cooked another few minutes and was done!
And the result was (forgive me for this)…OMG. Wow. Oh man. Yowzers. It was so tasty and fresh and flavorful. For the next pizza we made the only possible improvement- we added bacon. And that was off the charts.
So there you go- we highly recommend the recipe and the whole experience was a lot of fun.
And you know- though it may seem a little lame how we spent our 8th anniversary with Alton Brown- I’m so glad that we are a couple that still tries new things. Together. And has a blast doing it. I mean, who knew that we would be pizza grillers? Makes me think the best is yet to come- and I’m not talking pizza. =)
