I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Pizza on the Grill

So this happened last week in Algonquin Provincial Park.
We got up close and personal with these guys!

This also happened

I know, not the same as seeing bears, but still...fresh pizza out in the woods!!

Pack a frozen ball of your favourite pizza dough, oiled in a ziplock bag. You can keep it in the cooler for about 24 hours. Let it come to room temperature (or forest temperature if you're out in the woods!) 

This is the link to the dough recipe I used

Have all your toppings ready to go. While the dough is still in the baggie separate it into 2 or 3 pieces and press out to form your pizzas.

Oil a piece of foil or use this handy dandy Cookina re-usable cooking sheet. Cut the plastic bag opened, brush the dough with olive oil and flip onto the oiled sheet in a BBQ that has been heated to 500F. Oil the top side as well.

After 2-3 minutes the dough will start to brown on the bottom and bubble on the top.
When good and crispy on the bottom use a pair of tongs to flip the dough over and top with sauce, cheese, pepperoni, veggies. Whatever you like.
Close the lid of the BBQ just long enough for the cheese to melt, a couple of minutes. When just about ready add any fresh herbs you have like these basil leaves.

Check the bottom for doneness and when it looks cooked remove to a plate.
Not as exciting as seeing Algonquin's famous bears, but pretty darn good!
