This Neopolitan Pizza can be made in the oven or on the grill. The best recipe we have found so far is Neopolitan Pizza published by BrowneyedBaker. Cento’s San Marzano has one of the best tomato flavors around creating a soft, mellow and amazing sauce. This brand of tomatoes can be hard to find but they are well worth the hunt. We have made this pizza both in the oven and on the grill; our favorite is the wood fired. We convert our 22″ Premium Weber grill into a pizza oven with use of the Kettle Pizza insert. The secret to a successful wood fired pizza is getting the temperature over 600 degrees. This recipe takes homemade pizza to a new level, turns your kitchen into sensory overload station and makes you an artisan pizza maker. Hope you try it and enjoy. 2JAKS
We purchased the Weber’s Greatest Hits recipe book from Lowe’s and have been trying the Fan Favorites. Colonel Stewart Navarre, Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton, California submitted this recipe to Weber’s grilling contest in 2006. Last night we made Combat Steaks; they were tender, flavorful and mouth-watering. We made two small modifications to the recipe/directions; we used strip steaks instead of ribeyes and melted the blue cheese in with the mushrooms before topping the steak.
Check out the recipe on Weber’s site; they also have a pdf of the recipe here.
