New EGGsperimental Fire Roasted Veggie Pizzas

Options
Howdy,

Last night I decided to try a couple of new pizza ideas I came up with on the Egg. I was making 2 different fire roasted veggie pizzas.

These are all the different veggies I cooked on the Mini while the Large was hard at work heating up the pizza stone.

For both pizzas I made a sun-dried tomato and basil pesto sauce by first toasting some pine nuts, then tossing them into the blender with some fresh basil, olive oil, sun-dried tomatoes, garlic and asiago cheese.

The first pizza I made was a grilled Asparagus & Artichoke Heart pizza with caramalized onions, toasted pine nuts and goat cheese.

The second pizza was a roasted onion, red pepper, mushroom, tomato and zucchini pizza topped with fresh Brie.

Our friends made a great deconstructed tomato, cucumber and avocado salad and we served it up with some wine and good times!!!

These EGGsperimental pizzas are going into the rotation. Loved them both!!! I can`t believe I have never tried grilling artichoke hearts before! I hit them with just a squirt of lemon juice and olive oil and man they were good!!!

If you want to see all the pictures of the Mini at work check out my full blog post here

Thanks for lookin!

    Yeah no kidding! If it can be cooked indoors, it can be cooked on the Egg! It will just taste better on the Egg!!!

    That sounds like a delicious experiment! Fire-roasted veggie pizzas can be incredibly flavorful and satisfying. It's great that you utilized your Egg grill to infuse a smoky and charred taste into the vegetables.

    While you haven't specified which vegetables you used, there are several popular options for fire-roasted veggie pizzas. Some common choices include:

    1. Bell Peppers: Roasting bell peppers over an open flame until the skin blackens and blisters can add a wonderful smoky flavor to your pizza here at vegetarische pizza

    2. .

    3. Eggplant: Sliced eggplant can be brushed with olive oil and grilled until tender and lightly charred.

    4. Zucchini and Yellow Squash: These vegetables can be sliced lengthwise or into rounds and grilled until they develop grill marks and become slightly softened.

    5. Red Onions: Grilling red onions can caramelize their sugars and bring out a sweet and smoky taste.

    6. Tomatoes: Grilling tomatoes can intensify their flavor and give them a slightly smoky profile, which can work well in sauces or as toppings.

    7. Mushrooms: Fire-roasting mushrooms can enhance their earthy taste and give them a meaty texture.

    8. Corn: Grilling corn on the cob imparts a smoky flavor and adds a satisfying crunch to your pizza.

    Remember to brush the vegetables with some olive oil, sprinkle them with salt and pepper, and adjust the grilling time according to the thickness of each vegetable slice.

    Feel free to get creative with your toppings and sauces as well. Consider using a base of marinara sauce, pesto, or even a garlic-infused olive oil. You can also add cheese, such as mozzarella or feta, and finish off with fresh herbs like basil or parsley.

    I hope your fire-roasted veggie pizzas turned out fantastic, and enjoy your culinary experiments on the Egg!
