Caprese Pizza with Bacon

Pizza on the grill? Yes, you’ll be hooked, once you try our Caprese Pizza with Bacon. With a homemade basil pesto, fresh mozzarella and bacon, it’s a late summer masterpiece (when tomatoes and basil are at their peak).

Ingredients
6 slices bacon
4 oz (113 mL ) fresh mozzarella or bocconcini cheese
1 lb (454 g) white pizza dough
2 tsp (10 mL) extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 cup (125 mL) Basil Pesto for Pizza*
1 tomato, sliced into 1/4-inch(5mm)thick rounds
2 tbsp (25 mL) sliced fresh basil

Preparation:

Cut bacon slices in half. In skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until still slightly chewy, about 8 minutes. Transfer to paper towel–lined plate; set aside.

Drain and pat mozzarella dry; cut into 1/4-inch (5 mm) thick rounds. Arrange on separate paper towel–lined tray; pat dry.

On lightly floured surface, roll out dough to 16- x 12-inch (40 x 30 cm) rectangle; transfer to lightly floured pizza peel or inverted baking sheet.

Brush with oil. Place, oiled side down, directly on greased grill over medium heat. Grill, uncovered and watching carefully to avoid burning, until bubbles form on top and grill marked underneath, 3 to 6 minutes.

Slide pizza peel, 2 wide spatulas or inverted baking sheet under pizza. Flip pizza; close lid and cook just until set, about 1 minute. Transfer to lightly floured pizza peel or inverted baking sheet. Reduce heat to medium-low.

Spread with pesto; top with tomato, bacon and cheese.

Slide back onto grill. Close lid and grill until bubbly and underside is browned, 3 to 8 minutes. Sprinkle with basil.

1/4 tsp (1 mL) salt
1/4 tsp (1 mL) pepper
1/3 cup (75 mL) extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 cup (125 mL) grated Parmesan cheese
1 garlic clove, minced

Preparation:

In small dry skillet, toast pine nuts over medium heat, shaking pan often, until light golden, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer to food processor and let cool.

Add basil, salt and pepper; finely chop together. With motor running, add oil in thin steady stream until pureed. Pulse in Parmesan cheese and garlic. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate in airtight container for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 6 months.)

Every recipe is great, the first week I made 4 recipes and they were all wonderful. Had a party with a couple of different recipes including an amazing red patato and radish salad. Everyone wanted the recipe. Great gift, great recipe book, really my favorite ever.

Ever heard of a memory dump? This is a recipe-dump. Also, it is like the third or fourth edition/revision, although that info is buried in the back of the book.
barbecue collection? ok, maybe sort of, kind of.
a lot of recipes having nothing to do with grilling.
their skimpy intro on the basics talks about gas vs. charcoal. hello!? how about wood grilling? really.
a 2-page cover on `the basics'? ok, ok, that's how it was as done a million years ago.
hey, check out cooks illustrated grilling cook book, or 'Charred & Scruffed (Adam Lang); or seven fires (Francis Mallman).
even the recipes, hey, there are some good ones, but who has time to sift through 300-400 recipes, giving only lip service to grilling. beets? ok, a recipe for beet salad. well, how about grilling beets?
cauliflower? nary a mention.
nice recipe for grilled radicchio, but really, that's it?

Best Barbecue book around. June 27 2013
By peggy Chase - Published on Amazon.com

This cookbook is not only beautiful, but it actually has recipes that are simple, yet delicious. The pictures are superb and the recipes are written so even a non-cook can follow them. I have made many dinners from the recipes and they have all exceeded my expectations. Give it a try, you will not be disappointed.
