If you think your customers are tired of having the same old burgers and hotdogs on the barbecue, why not branch out your menu choices and start offering pizza on the barbecue! It’s true. Barbecued pizza is a hot trend that’s not going away anytime soon, and when you offer it as a menu option, your customers will thank you!
Before you start to vision the mess on your kitchen’s grill, here are a few tips on making pizza on a barbecue. With a little bit of planning and creativity, you can make pizza on your barbecue and experience a number of advantages. When you put pizza on the grill, your customers will be able to enjoy a delicious meal that has been grilled to perfection and offers a distinct smokey taste that you just can’t get from oven baked pizza. The secret? Par baked frozen pizza dough.
Par baked dough is exactly what it sounds like, dough that is literally only half baked. You can make it a number of ways, but purchasing prepared par baked dough in advance will be your biggest time saver, and it won’t eat into your profits either because it’s very affordable. Par baked dough is prepared as usual, but is only cooked for half of the time to give the yeast only half the time in the oven. The other half of the time will be spent on the grill.
Raw dough for your pizza will work well in the oven, but not on your grill. Thus if you have an already made par baked frozen pizza shell to put on the grill, the only other thing you need is your pizza garnish and a whole menu selection of pizza toppings. After that, you just need to put it on special in your restaurant, and watch your profits soar from the trendy menu choices you offer!
