The weather has been so nice the past few days with warm temperatures and sunny skies.  I decided to take advantage of this much needed change by firing up my grill.  It was a night of the boys coming and going, so I knew they’d be hungry once they hit the door.  My dinner choice was perfect – grilled pizza!  I picked up some prepared dough, got several toppings ready and made some pizza sauce.  Making a pizza on the grill may seem intimidating but truthfully, it’s really, really easy and the outcome is crazy delicious!
