grilled bruschetta pizza recipeI remember coming home from college for a break and my mom telling me that we were having grilled pizza for dinner, I thought that she was nuts. Grilled pizza? Um, yeah, grilled pizza! She must have just been ahead of her time because grilled pizza is everywhere now. And for good reason. Something magical happens when pizza dough hits hot grates and leaves a little char on the crust of your pizza. I love the smoky flavor, and even better, I don’t have to crank my oven up to screamin’ hot in the middle of the summer.

When I went to Betty Crocker a few months ago, we were lucky enough to play with the new Pillsbury Artisan Pizza Crust before it hit store shelves. This new whole grain pizza crust is truly delicious and packs a nice little whole grain punch with 16 grams of whole grain per serving. I feel in love with bruschetta pizza at a local pizza place and I needed to create my own version. I am so glad that I did, because this pizza is a marriage of two of my favorite things. Bruschetta and pizza. This grilled pizza is a perfect way to celebrate the last of summer’s perfect tomatoes.
