I thought that might grab your attention! Ménage à trois literally translated means "household of three." So get your mind out of the gutter! Nothing but food porn here! Hee hee hee.
In this instance I am referring to three kinds of pizza on the grill. Sounds like the makings of a summer Sunday night dinner chez moi!
This time I used Amy's recipe for the dough. You can find it on her blog, Familia Bencomo. I was in the mood to do a few different kinds of pizza. Traditional red sauce is good but it is always fun to mix it up. When grilling pizza things go REALLY fast sometimes so have all your toppings ready to go and standing by. I also find it works best to use a smaller size dough as it is easier to flip. I grill one side until beginning to be a light golden brown and then flip it and begin to add toppings.
I started with a chicken Alfredo pizza. On this I put Alfredo sauce first. Try making your own Alfredo. It is so easy and takes just minutes. You can really taste the difference. In most all recipes I have seen, it is simply an equal part of butter, cream and fresh parmesan. Salt and pepper to taste and add a little fresh ground nutmeg for that little extra... je ne sais quois!
Then I topped with mozzarella, chicken (left over from the night before) and carmelized onion and garlic (on only half as the kids would balk at it on their pieces.)
Secondly, I made one pizza with pesto and slices of fresh mozzarella. This one wasn't my favorite as the pesto was purchased and just not up to par. It was too salty or something. Not sure what the problem was. I need to just make my own as it isn't that hard at all.
Thirdly, to appease my kids favorite as well as my husband, I made a pepperoni pizza. Marinara sauce, mozzarella cheese, pepperoni... you know the drill on this one.
I cut the pizza up into small strips so it was easier for the kids and we could try all the concoctions.
We all had fun and it is a great family treat. Or try it with a group of friends. Have all the toppings ready and near the grill and let everyone top their own for "personal" do-it-yourself grilled pizzas! My old roommates and I did it all the time. Back in the good old days living on Balboa Island!
