5 Reasons (and 5 Tips) to Make Grilled Pizza Now

5 Reasons (and 5 Tips) to Make Grilled Pizza Now

Grilled pizza was created more than 30 years ago by George Germon and Johanne Killeen at their restaurant Al Forno in Providence, Rhode Island. Flame-seared pies now turn up at innovative restaurants across North America—and around the world. So why is pizza even more irresistible when cooked on the grill?

Raichlen Predicts: BBQ Trends for 2015

Raichlen Predicts: BBQ Trends for 2015

2015 already? Seems like I just sat down to write last year’s predictions. Many came true, like really big steaks and cocktails get smoked. So here’s a look at my crystal ball for Planet Barbecue 2015. I write these words on a flight from Los Angeles to Miami. Which brings me to my first trend, for California often sets the agenda for grilling and American gastronomy in general. Wood-burning grills invade high-end restaurants: It used to be that grill restaurants were destinations in their own right. Now highfalutin Spanish, Italian, and even French restaurants are installing...

Pizza Hits the Grill

Pizza Hits the Grill

If barbecue traded on the stock market, I’d buy futures in grilled pizza. Flame-seared pies now turn up at innovative restaurants across North America—and around the world. Grill manufacturers sell a broad array of pizza accessories, from pizza stones to peels to cutters. The Companion Group—manufacturers of my Best of Barbecue and Planet Barbecue lines—recently created a new division called Pizzacraft, devote to the art of pizza on the grill. Wood-burning ovens are no longer the province solely...

PIZZA

NOT BY 'QUE ALONE: PIZZA PIES WORTH A DETOUR Yeah, we all love grilled pizza, but wood and coal oven baked pies rock, too. I'd make a special trip to Phoenix to eat the smoky pies at Pizza Bianco. Owner Chris Bianco is pictured with me above. Black olives, Italian salami, and homemade mozzarella. It doesn't get any better than this! On the other side of the country (New Haven, Connecticut) is another place that should be on your foodie...

PIZZA

PIZZA THE WAY WE LIKE IT Pizza the way we like it--made with organic flour and veggies and hot from a wood-burning oven! We're dining at Flatbread, a pizzeria on Martha's Vineyard (with branches in Portland, Maine; Burlington, Vermont; Portsmouth, New Hampshire; and elsewhere). A vegetarian's paradise. (This one's for Mrs. R. I ordered the homemade fennel sausage pizza.) Hot from the wood-burning oven. The only way to eat pizza!

Grilled Pizza

Grilled Pizza Steven met foodie and grilling enthusiast Peter Cravath at a book signing in Chicago several weeks ago. The photos Peter sent us of the grilled pizza he made for a recent weeknight supper show Peter's been putting his autographed copy of "How to Grill" (see pages 408-413 for this recipe and variations) to spectacularly good use. Grilled pizza was popularized in the U.S. more than 25 years ago by George Germon and Johanne Killeen...
