Instructions:

  1. Preheat grill on high for 10 minutes.
  2. For each pizza, spread the sauce/oil on the bun, and then top with the ingredients in that order.
  3. Place on grill, over indirect heat (only half the burners on–pizzas go over the cold burners.)
  4. Grill until the cheese gets melted.

How to grill an onion slice:

Slice onion thickly. Slide a skewer through as shown. Brush with a bit of oil. Grill until finished.

Tasting notes:

  1. The Cheesy Garlic bread needed more garlic and maybe a bit more cheese.
  2. The Reuben was killer!
  3. The rest were all very good and simple.
  4. I found that toasting the bread before making the pizza (as in the previous recipes) is an unnecessary step.
  5. Using hamburger buns in this manner will allow everyone to make their own pizza exactly as they want it (or them?) All it will take is a supply of sauces and various toppings for a very simple pizza party.

  1. The Reuben sounds great, and I’m also looking forward to trying out the garlic bread (with extra garlic!).
