Itsa me...Mario

Busy weekend in the household so I opted  for an old standby.  I dabbled in the pizza arts in college so I can throw a pretty mean pie!  

Grilled pizza with a bit of smoke puts store-bought and the national chains to shame. Give it a won't disappoint! 

      Smoked Cajun Pizza
  1. Dough ball (store bought for time's sake)
  2. Corn meal
  3. Pizza Sauce
  4. Mozzarella
  5. Homemade smoked cheddar (recipe for another time)
  6. Carolina Pride "Hot" Sausage
  7. Sweet onion
  8. Garlic
  9. Bell Pepper
  10. Shrooms
  11. Olive oil
  12. Liquid marinade for the chef

Primo at 400 degrees.  White oak chunks for smoke

Indirect heat set-up using Primo's "D" plates

Using corn meal to remove moisture, work dough to size of pizza stone.  Throw it in the air a few times for the  crowd!

Apply sauce and a thin layer of mozzarella, olive oil, and garlic

Arrange remainder of toppings starting with flat veggies and build your way up.  Top with pan-seared sausage and smoked cheese.  Finish off with another layer of mozzarella and olive oil

Grill for 20-25 minutes @ 400 degrees or until crust begins to brown.  Remove from grill and let your pie rest for 10-15 minutes.  Butter crust and sprinkle with parmesan for a nice touch.
