Breakfast Pizza on the GRILL!!!!

The hardest part was transferring my round crust to the grill grates... apparently the ROUND got lost in the transition!

This was a lot of fun and pretty simple, I can't wait to try traditional pizza on the grill.  This was a pizza made with pizza dough, eggs, mozzarella, parmesan cheese, bacon, chives and flat leaf parsley.  It was really good.  As we were eating we were concocting a million possibilities... tomato, arugula, mozz, spinach, sausage... the possibilities are endless.  The recipe follows:

Preheat Grill 1/2 grill on High and 1/2 on Medium

1 Pizza Dough (For convenience sake I used a Betty Crocker Pizza Dough Box mix)
1 C Shredded Mozzarella
1/4 C Parmesan
7 strips cooked bacon, crumbled
3 large eggs
2 shallot cloves chopped
2 scallions
Flat Leaf Parsley
Salt & Pepper

Place prepared dough on a baking sheet with olive oil.  Gently stretch the dough to desired shape making sure that the dough is well oiled on both sides.  Do not stretch the dough too thin, 1/8 to 1/4 inch is ideal.

 Place the dough on the grill over the high heat side.  (This is not as easy as it sounds, next time I will try adding some cornmeal to my platter to make sliding the dough off easier).  Cook the dough without touching for about 2 minutes or until grill marks appear on the bottom side.  The dough can then be flipped over and put on the medium heat side to be dressed.

Gently crack open three eggs on the top of the pizza and close the lid for 2-3 minutes until the eggs begin to set.  Once eggs are set, add cheeses, bacon, shallots, scallions, salt, pepper.  Slide the pizza over to the high heat side and cook an additional minute or two.  Top with Chives and flat leaf parsley before serving.  VOILA... ENJOY!
