Grilled Pizza: You Might Never Want Store-Bought Again
“As American as apple pie” is often heard to convey our deep and abiding affection for a bakery staple that is symbolic of everything entwined with our national identity and patriotic pride.
But as history proves, apple pie isn’t originally American at all. And given the run of popularity, we could just as easily claim that another import tugs at Americans heart strings and palates: “As American as pizza pie.”
Do we love pizza? Obsessed is probably a better way to put it.
According to the USDA, Americans spend $37 billion on pizza each year, or about 1/3 of worldwide pizza expenditures, consuming 100 acres of pizza every day for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks.
Yet despite our love of consuming the pie, very little gets made at home and even less is made on the grill.
Making grilled pizza is relatively simple, inexpensive, and yields a delectable pie with unique flavors and unlimited possibilities for toppings that rivals even the best and most inventive parlor-made creation.
