Patio Pizzeria
Artisan Pizza and Flatbreads on the Grill
By (author) Karen Adler By (author) Judith Fertig


When the weather's warm, cooking outside on the grill is no chore. To broaden your grill-marked possibilities beyond chicken and steak, give pizza a whirl. Authors Karen Adler and Judith Fertig walk you through all the steps of preparing the perfect homemade pizza, and then cooking it on a hot grill. It's easy: smaller pizzas go directly onto the grates, cooking in a flash. Larger pizzas can go onto pizza stones or into pizza oven attachments built for gas or charcoal grills. And of course, the vegetable and meat toppings can be cooked on the grill, too, for a fully al fresco meal. Adler and Fertig even suggest grilled salads and sides to round out your meal, using up garden-fresh produce in the process!

With 100 versatile and easy recipes for flatbreads, bruschetta, and panini, and more, you can choose from the classic Pepperoni and Mushroom Pizza with a Kiss of Smoke and Spinach Artichoke Pizza with Wood Smoke, to the more exotic Thai Shrimp Pizza with Coconut and Chiles or Lebanese Flatbread with Feta, Za'atar, and Chives, as well as gluten-free and vegan twists. Put pizza on the menu (and on the grill) tonight!
