Grilled Homemade Pizza

Pizza Night is always a big hit at our house.
We used to just call for pizza delivery but having fresh ingredients on hand and using what we have available makes a big difference in flavor, quality and budget. My boys love being involved in the kitchen, especially when they have the chance to customize things to their liking.

Early in the summer, we tried making pizza on the grill and it quickly was added to our usual dinner rotation. Who knew how fast and easy it was to make?!
