Grape Pizza

I saw this on a Food Network show about pizza and tried to make it at home. The restaurant was Pies and Pints, they used a wood-fired  oven. I have used a grill in the past because I did not want to heat up the house. For "Girls Night" I used the oven. It is such a delicious combination. The perfect bite is one with a grape, some blue cheese and rosemary. YUM! I used fresh rosemary from one of my shrubs. I admit I like the grilled version a little better, but the oven does a fine job too. A great meatless meal for Lent, but would make a great appetizer too.

Grape Pizza
Serves 4


1 can or roll of pizza dough
1 cup pizza blend cheese (mozzarella and provolone)
1 Tbsp fresh rosemary needles
1-1/2 cups red grapes, halved
1/2 cup blue cheese


Prepared on the Grill:
Pre-heat one side of a gas grill to high. Unroll dough and spray with olive oil cooking spray. Grill dough for 2-3 minutes over direct heat until you see nice grill marks. Flip and move to the indirect heat. Top with cheese blend, rosemary, grapes and blue cheese. Grill until crust is done and cheese is melted. Remove from grill and cut into 8 pieces.

Prepared in the Oven:
Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. Grease sheet pan with a little olive oil. Roll crust out on to sheet pan and pre-bake for 5 minutes. Remove from oven and top with cheese blend, rosemary, grapes and blue cheese. Bake another 8 minutes until edges of crust are golden brown and cheese is melted. Remove from grill and cut into 8 pieces.

  1. You are on a roll making my mouth water. I'm digging the idea of sweet grapes paired with funky (I mean that in the best of ways) blue cheese and woodsy rosemary. Thank you for sharing this week!

    1. Thanks! Michelle, Try the grill first. That is the best way. Have a great week!
