This delicious grilled pizza recipe will please your whole family!  Feel free to add your favourite toppings!

Servings: 
4 servings
Prep Time: 
10 min
Total Time: 
25 min

Ingredients

  • Pizza Dough for Grilled Pizza (Check out this recipe)
  • 1 cup pizza sauce)
  • 1 large tomato, sliced into 0.5 cm slices
  • 1 cup heirloom cherry tomatoes – halved
  • 4-6 oz of mozzarella cheese sliced thinly
  • 1 cup fresh basil
  • 3 oz fresh grated parmesan
  • Black olives, pitted and halved
  • Olive oil

Directions:

  1. Preheat barbecue on high with the lid closed for 10-15 minutes.
  2. Take pizza dough and roll it out into a thin circle about ½” thick.
  3. Brush 1 side of the pizza dough with olive oil.
  4. Open the barbecue lid and lay the pizza dough down on the side with olive oil.
  5. Brush the other side with a thin layer of olive oil.
  6. Grill pizza dough for 2-3 minutes. Use tongs or pizza peel to check how the crust is doing.  You are looking for grill marks, but avoid letting the dough get crispy.
  7. Once grill marks appear, but before dough is crispy, flip it over using tongs or a pizza peel.
  8. Now you can add your toppings to the grilled pizza crust.  Start by spreading a thin layer of tomato sauce and top with the parmesan and mozzarella cheese, tomatoes, and black olives.  Do not overload the pizza with toppings, especially cheese.
  9. Grill for about 5-7 more minutes (this will vary depending on the barbecue). Check on it often, and rotate to avoid any hot spots. The grilled pizza will be ready when the cheese melts and the edges of the pizza are crisp and well-done.
  10. Remove the grilled pizza using a pizza peel or you can drag it onto a plate using tongs. Sprinkle on the basil. Let cool for 3 minutes before cutting.

Enjoy!

Barbecued Ribs

Who doesn’t love the smokey tastes of barbecued ribs right off the grill?  Try out this simple recipe to get your barbecued ribs fix!

Servings: 
8 servings
Prep Time: 
5 min + 2-3 hours
Total Time: 
3 hours 25 min 

Ingredients for Barbecued Ribs

  • 1 /2 tbsp kosher sauce
  • 1 tablespoon dry mustard
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 8 pounds baby back pork ribs (8 racks) or St. Louis-style spare ribs (4 racks)
  • Low-salt chicken broth (optional)
  • 1 1/2 cups store-brought or homemade barbecue sauce plus more

Directions: First Bake the Ribs

  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Combine first 5 ingredients in a small bowl.
  3. Place each rack of ribs on a double layer of foil; sprinkle rub all over ribs.
  4. Wrap racks individually and divide between 2 baking sheets.
  5. Bake ribs until very tender but not falling apart, about 2 hours for baby backs and 3 hours for spareribs.
  6. Carefully unwrap the ribs; pour any juices from foil into a 4-cup heatproof measuring cup; reserve juices. Let ribs cool completely.

TIP: Ribs can be baked up to 3 days ahead (the flavor will be more developed, and the cold ribs will hold together better on the grill as they heat through). Cover and chill juices. Re-wrap ribs in foil and chill.

Directions: Second Grill the Ribs

  1. Heat a gas grill to high.
  2. Add broth or water to rib juices, if needed, to measure 1 1/2 cups.
  3. Whisk in barbecue sauce to blend.
  4. Grill ribs, basting with barbecue sauce mixture and turning frequently, until lacquered and charred in places and heated through, 7-10 minutes.
  5. Transfer to a cutting board; cut between barbecued ribs to separate.
  6. Transfer barbecued ribs to a platter and serve with additional barbecue sauce.

GLAZED BEEF MEDALLIONS

This classic combination of beef medallions and mushrooms is ready in minutes. With a little forward thinking, you can use Marinating Beef Medallions and marinate before cooking.

Servings: 
10 servings
Prep Time: 
10 min
Total Time: 
25 min 

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup barbecue sauce
  • 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 green onions, finely sliced
  • 1 tsp crumbled dried rosemary
  • 1 1/2 lb assorted mix mushrooms (button, crimini, portabello, shiitake, or oyster)
  • 1 sweet onion, cut into wedges
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 1/2 lb Beef Strip Loin Grilling Medallions (about 6), cut to 1 inch thin

Directions for Grilling Medallion

  1. Combine barbecue sauce, lemon juice, garlic, green onions and rosemary in bowl. Remove 1/4 cup (50 mL) for basting.
  2. Cut: mushrooms and into large chunks, keeping oyster mushrooms whole. Toss with onion, and salt and pepper to taste. Pan-fry in butter in nonstick skillet over medium heat for about 12 minutes or until slightly caramelized and liquid has evaporated. Stir in remaining barbecue sauce mixture; heat through.
  3. Meanwhile, season medallions with salt and pepper to taste. Grill over medium-high heat for 10-12 minutes, turning at least twice, for medium-rare doneness 145°F(63°C). Brush with reserved sauce occasionally. Let stand for 5 minutes. Serve each topped with pan-fried mushrooms.

Cook’s Notes: If using Marinating Medallions, pierce meat all over and marinate in 1/4 cup (50 mL) of the basting sauce for 8 to 12 hours in fridge. Discard sauce used to marinate and grill as above, skipping the basting step.
