Pizza night is easy with store bought frozen dough, delicious sauce, and fresh cheese. Instead of heating up your kitchen, make the pizza outside in your wood pellet Traeger Grill!
Spring is here and that means more outdoor cooking. Yay! This also means it will soon be time to find ways to NOT heat up the kitchen. I am going to do my best to try not to heat my kitchen up too much this coming Summer. So… I’m kicking off Spring by making our traditional Friday night pizza on the Wood Pellet Traeger Grill instead of heating up the house.
- Cast iron skillet
- 2 Tablespoons of Olive oil
- Store bought frozen pizza dough, defrosted
- Locatelli Pecorino Romano cheese, grated
- Whole Milk Mozzarella cheese slices
- Botticelli Tomato and Parmigiano Reggiano pasta sauce
- Shaved Parmesan cheese
- Basil olive oil, to drizzle on top of the pizza
- Italian seasoning, to top pizza
- Preheat the Traeger Grill to high heat.
- Place 2 Tablespoons of olive oil to the bottom of a cast iron skillet.
- Coat the pizza dough with the olive oil and stretch it to fit the bottom of the cast iron skillet.
- Next, spread the sauce on top of the dough. Then add the Locatelli cheese, the mozzarella, and then top with shaved Parmesan Cheese and Italian seasoning to taste. Drizzle basil olive oil on top.
- Once the grill is above 400°, please the cast iron skillet pizza onto the Traeger grill. Close the lid, and set your timer to check the pizza in 15 minutes. My pizza took about 20 minutes to cook and it was perfect!
This will be how I cook my pizzas on Friday in the spring and summer seasons. 👍🏻👍🏻
