Grilled Pizzas

I feel like I should rename this the Ben and Jennifer cooking blog, because lately Ben has been cooking more than me! One of his most recent meals was grilled pizzas, grilled lettuce and homemade pita chips with hummus.

He got the pizza recipe from Men's Health. Here's the link. We made cheese only pizzas (for me) and cheese and onions pizzas (for those that like onions), both topped with fresh basil leaves. (Tip: do not put the basil on before putting the pizzas on the grill. Grilled basil tastes very different from fresh basil...and not in a good way.)

To make the grilled lettuce, slice a head of Romaine in half and drizzle a little olive oil on top. Add some kosher salt and ground pepper. Place these on the grill for 3-5 minutes (make sure you don't burn them!) Remove them from the grill and sprinkle with feta cheese and balsamic dressing. Ben also added cherry tomatoes and sliced onions to the lettuce before serving.

To make the homemade pita chips, Ben cut pita bread into triangles and brushed them with olive oil. You can add whatever spices you want (garlic or something spicier) and bake on 400 until slightly crispy (about 9 minutes).
