Pizza on the Grill

Mushrooms, sausage, olives, and mozzarella
     Again this weekend, I was out of town on Friday night and Saturday morning, this time for an Outdoor School Student Leader training.  Mom sighed, "Your just growing up."

     Today dawned bright and sunny, a beautiful not-yet really fall day.  To capitalize on the weather, I decided to make pizza - on the grill.  Cy did it about two and a half years ago, and while it was a wild success then, my plan still scared Dad.  That one would put a viscous dough on a grate full of holes does, admittedly, seem like a bad idea, but dough is very nearly a solid, and it becomes crispy quite quickly when you start to cook it.
     My original plan was to make four pizzas, but we downgraded that to three.  One goat cheese and roasted red pepper pizza, one pepperoni pizza, and one mushroom, sausage, olive and mozzarella pizza.  All the pizzas were awesome, and Mimi called the mushroom-sausage pizza the best pizza she'd ever had.  While I wouldn't go quite that far, they were some really good pizzas.  Now, I have to get to homework.  While it may have looked, felt, and tasted like summer today, it is most definitely the middle of the school year, tomorrow is, after all, the first day of October.
