Grilled Pizza Bolognese.
  • 1 lb of ground beef
  • 2 Tbsp. of butter
  • ¼ Cup of yellow onion, minced
  • 2 Garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 Large Carrots, finely diced (about 2 cups)
  • 2 cups of fresh spinach, chopped
  • 28 Oz. can of crushed San Marzano tomatoes
  • 2 Tbsp of tomato paste
  • Salt and Pepper
  • ¼ Parmesan cheese
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Pizza dough
  • Pizza crust seasonings (garlic powder, onion powder, oregano, salt and pepper)
  • Mozzarella
  • Flour for dusting
  • Red pepper flakes, optional
  1. In a stockpot, brown the ground beef until cooked through. Remove from pot and set aside.
  2. Melt butter in the same stockpot and sauté onion, garlic, carrots, and spinach for 10-12 minutes until softened.
  3. Stir in the ground beef, crushed tomatoes tomato paste and season with salt and pepper. Stir in parmesan cheese and red pepper flakes (if desired) and simmer the sauce for 30 minutes while you prepare the pizza.
  4. Pre-heat your grill to high heat and place your pizza stone on the grill to heat up.
  5. Stretch out your pizza dough on a lightly floured work surface (a cookie sheet works well), season the crust with spices (garlic powder, onion powder, oregano, salt and pepper).
  6. Top the dough with the Bolognese sauce (there should be enough for several pizzas or leftover for other meals – it freezes well too!). Then place slices of fresh mozzarella on top of the sauce.
  7. Cook on the high-heat grill for 7-9 minutes, until the cheese and crust are golden brown.
