Birthday Pizza

Usually Friday night is pizza night (dough recipe) but my little girl turned 8 and asked for pizza for her party.  With the recent acquisition of the ceramic grill this also meant doing the pizzas one at a time.  After I did six “kid pizzas” (tomato and cheese) I turned my attention to the adults.

I purchased some fresh mozzarella and made four different adult pies.  Here is one with garlic, olive oil, basil, and cherry tomatoes.

And this one is a basil pesto with piquillo peppers pizza.  I made a “house sausage” and radicchio one as well but unfortunately that stuck to the peal a bit and wasn’t quite photogenic enough.  As was the case with the previous attempt the 650-675 degree temperature range churned out some great pizza.

  1. Good looking crust on that pizza. Good looking pizzas.

  2. Happy Birthday to your lovely daughter. I love her T-Shirt and peach sign necklace. Great pizzas.
    Have a happy day.

  3. Great picture of the birthday girl. Your feature on the “Big Green Egg” has a few of my friends in England pondering on whether to purchase one. They’re imported into the UK now and make a much better option than the traditional wood fired oven. As usual, a very excellent post.

  4. Looks awesome. Happy birthday to your daughter!

  5. Happy birthday to your daughter
    is that a harry potter cake?

    • Ten points for Gryffindor! Sorry, couldn’t resist. Yes my daughter is obsessed with Harry Potter at the moment so we had a Harry Potter cake done by a local cake expert. Is was wonderful.

  6. Happy birthday to your daughter! My son will be 8 next year – I love that you made each kid a special pizza. And they look delicious!

  7. Thank you all for the birthday wishes! They have tickled her greatly.

  8. I love to grill pizza – and I still have green egg envy.
