You may have already read that I love to grill. When I loved in Georgia and didn't have to shovel my way to my grill through 2 feet of snow, I grilled year round. Now, I am limited to days without snow on the deck and when the wind blows under 25 miles an hour.

 

But I love to grill everything. Even pizzas. So, this recipe looked easy, tasty and it is cooked on the grill! Fantastic! What do you think? Sound good to you?

Thanks to Martha Stewart for this recipe!
