4 Delicious Desserts to Grill This Spring

Spring is approaching and so is grilling season! We here at G&B Energy love grilling because it’s fun and expands your options for meals.

Here are 4 fun desserts for you to grill this spring:

delicious Grilled Smores PizzaGrilled S’mores Pizza

Prep time: Cook time: Total time: Serves: 6-8


Ingredients

  • 1 package refrigerated pizza dough
  • 1 cup Nutella
  • ⅔ cup crumbled graham crackers
  • 1 cup mini marshmallows
  • ⅓ cup chocolate chips + 2 tbsp
  • 2 tsp cornmeal or flour for handling

Directions

  1. Preheat pizza stone for 10-15 minutes on medium high heat. You can test that the stone is ready by using a drop of water over the stone – the water should evaporate immediately.
  2. While the stone is heating, prepare the pizza dough as directed on the packaging and place on a pizza peel dusted with cornmeal (or flour).
  3. Spread the Nutella over the pizza dough leaving a ¼ – ½ inch border around the edge of the pizza dough. Sprinkle approximately ½ of the graham crackers over the Nutella followed by the marshmallows and chocolate chips.
  4. Decrease the heat on the grill to low (approximately 200-250F). Sprinkle the top of the pizza stone with cornmeal and transfer the pizza to the stone with a pizza peel. Close the lid on the grill.
  5. After 5 minutes, open the grill cover and rotate the pizza to allow for even cooking. Close the lid and cook for approximately 5-7 more minutes until the marshmallows and pizza crust are golden brown.
  6. Top immediately with remaining chocolate chips and graham crackers. You can also drizzle with chocolate sauce.

Notes

To avoid sticking, ensure that the pizza stone is well heated prior to adding your pizza and don’t forget to sprinkle the pizza stone with cornmeal {or flour}. It is also a good idea to rotate the pizza stone half way through cooking to avoid burning.
