You guys. . I have been waiting to share this recipe with you. After this fabulous grilled pizza, I was grilling pizzas for a couple of weeks straight.
And I finally get to share my homemade pizza dough recipe!!! It makes enough for 4 pizzas so make the entire batch and freeze some dough balls for later! Believe me, after this, you’ll be firing up that grill a lot!!!! Just to make this breakfast pizza!
Here’s my new love. . my new KitchenAid grill. She’s amazing. As are all of my other female countertop appliances and kitchen gadgets.
I might be eating breakfast pizza for the next month or so. Be sure to check out my post over at The Kitchenthusiast because I’ll be honest, making this pizza took a few tries. Grilling pizza on the grill isn’t completely easy. It just takes some practice and you’re sure to lose a few eggs in the process . . you’ll understand what I mean if you try this recipe.
And I hope you do. . because this pizza is AMAZING. And yes, there is pesto involved.
