I have always loved the Twilight Zone. Rod Serling is a television writing icon. This morning, I read this article from Brain Pickings. I love new ideas. Be it in television, books, marketing campaigns, whatever. I like the fact that he says it all in 1:05. Great inspiration for the day.
“Ideas come from the Earth. They come from every human experience that you’ve either witnessed or have heard about, translated into your brain in your own sense of dialogue, in your own language form. Ideas are born from what is smelled, heard, seen, experienced, felt, emotionalized. Ideas are probably in the air, like little tiny items of ozone. That’s the easiest thing on earth, to come up with an idea. The second thing is, the harding thing on earth is to put it down.”
I’ve heard about it, just never tried it….grilled pizza.
When I grill something for the first time, I’m a big fan of just going by the book (or in this case recipe). Why reinvent the wheel? I saw the video from Bobby Flay and just used his recipe. I actually did two different kinds: Grilled Pizza with Hot Sausage, Grilled Peppers and Onions and Oregano Ricotta and Bobby Flay’s Margherita Pizza.
Pizza crust for me is always a pain-in-the-ass. Make it easy on yourself and just buy the packaged kind from Pillsbury or whoever.
When you put it on to crisp it up, it doesn’t take long if you have your grill temp on high. So, stay near to the grill. You will only have time for a couple sips of beer before you have to flip it.
We liked the way it turned out, but we will definitely make a few changes the next time, now that we know how the process works.
