Bill that looks awesome. When I saw it I made the face the kid made in the movie Role Models when he saw the naked girl in the tent. :-D

Everyone,
I just purchased a new portable gas grill that carries like a suitcase. Today I tried grilling pizza using the method where you par bake the dough on one side directly on the grill. Add the toppings to the browned side and bake again directly on the grill. I'm happy to report some great results.  I also grilled a slab of London Broil which also came out great. Check it out!

petef -- What is that sauce and how can I make some?

      Title: Garden Fresh Tomato Pizza Sauce by pete
 Categories: pizza
      Yield: 1 pies

       1 cups        Liquid Tomato (from Garden fresh tomatoes)
       4 tablespoons Tomato Paste
       1 teaspoons   Olive Oil - Bertolli Classico
       1 teaspoons   Balsamic Vinegar
   1 1/2 teaspoons   White Vinegar
     1/2 teaspoons   Honey
     1/4 teaspoons   Salt
     1/8 teaspoons   Ground Red Pepper

Utensils:
   * Blender
   * Strainer
   * Large Rubber Spatula w/4" blade.
   * Large bowl for draining ground tomatoes into.
   * Chef's knife
   


Create Liquid tomato from Garden Fresh Tomatoes:

1.) Wash tomatoes. You will need 1 pound of tomatoes for each cup of liquid
tomatoes that the recipe calls for.

2.) Cut up the tomatoes into about 1 inch by 1 inch pieces and add to blender
to make the blender about half full. Pulse in 1 second intervals to grind up
and liquefy the tomatoes. Do not allow blender to run for more than one second
at a time because it will create a pink liquid by introducing too much air into
the mix.

3.) Place a wire screen type strainer over a large bowl and put in the ground
tomatoes. Then use a rubber spatula to stir and compress the ground tomatoes
into the screen to create the liquid tomato. Discard any leftover seeds, skins,
and pulp.

 Note: You can alternatively use a food mill for this step above.


Cook the Sauce

1.) Combine the liquid tomato and tomato paste in the pot and cook over med-low heat for about 15 to 30 minutes to reduce it to a pizza sauce consistency.

2.) Add the Olive Oil, Balsamic and White Vinegars, Honey, Salt, and Red Pepper.

3.) Stir often and cook about 10 minutes more on low heat.


---enjoy---

For kicks and grins, I made a couple pies by throwing the dough straight onto the hot grill (I'm guessing 600-650F? I didn't check), flipping it over, topping the side I just cooked, and when the other side looked done, I put it in a hot oven for a minute or two to finish it off.

65% hydration
3% yeast
2% Ischia culture

Dough had about 24 hours total rise.

First pie is pepperoni, second is red onions roasted with a little homemade smoked kosher salt and bacon.

Thanks for the nice words on the grilled pie.

It was good. Quite a different bite than my normal pie, but good in its own right. I prefer it to any pizza I've made in my home oven. That being said, it's probably not something I will do often.

What was the oven temp? 550? Just threw it on a rack I'm guessing?

Yes, 550 and convection on. I put the pie on a cookie tray to make getting it in and out easy, but I don't see any reason why you couldn't put it straight on the rack.

I made some ribs in the smoker a few days ago, and used the leftovers for a BBQ pizza tonight. The funny thing is, I had intended to make just one pizza with the small pile of pulled rib meat I had left. But when my guests saw the pile, they all wanted it on their pizza. So I only had a small amount left for the pizza I ate myself, and photographed.

The rub was 1 part sugar to 1 part salt (divided into 4 types - garlic, onion, celery, and seasoned). Plus other small amounts of spices, including cayenne.

The sauce was 1 part ketchup to 1/4 white wine vinegar and 1/3 molasses. Plus lot of other spices, including a generous amount of cayenne.

Pizza had mozz, rib meat, roasted scallions, a swirl of sauce, and hot peppers held in vinegar.

It was a fabulous pizza, and my guests were extremely happy.

John

That looks like the proper way to do a pizza with barbecue on it! No heavy under layer of barbecue sauce. Just what you need....I like it  :)
