Grilled Pizza with Bacon, Strawberries, Rhubarb Jam, Red Onions, Gorgonzola Cheese

At the peak of strawberry season, I made this pizza on a whim. The result was a winner of savory and sweet, all at the same time. You can substitute the jam for pepper jelly and add peaches instead.

6 ounces pizza dough (at room temperature)

8 ounces bacon (cooked until crisp)

½ cup rhubarb or strawberry jam

1 ½ cup sliced strawberries

½ cup Parmesan cheese

1 cup Mozzarella (shredded)

5 ounces Gorgonzola (crumbled)

1 small red onion (sliced thin)

1 Tablespoon fresh thyme (chopped)

2 tablespoons olive oil

Heat your BBQ grill really hot.

Roll your dough into a 14-inch circle, and brush with olive oil.

Grill one side only for about 1-2 minutes.

Remove from grill and brush the other side with olive oil and spread the jam over the dough. Sprinkle the Parmesan over the jam. Next, layer the mozzarella, the strawberries, red onion, bacon and thyme.

Top with the Gorgonzola.

Put back on the grill or on a pizza stone on the grill and grill until bubbly. About 12 minutes. Keep an eye on the bottom of the crust so it doesn’t burn. Enjoy!
