 Pizza with Canadian Bacon and Artichokes | www.tasteandtellblog.com

Is anyone else kind of freaking out that September starts this week?  And that Labor Day is right around the corner?  Which means that fall is coming, and summer is leaving us.   Don’t get me wrong – I love fall.  It’s probably my favorite season.  But I feel like we should still have weeks of summer left.  And yeah, as I was cleaning out my son’s closet last night, I found a huge bag full of clothes for my daughter that my sister in law had given me months ago.  All summer clothes.  All that she will be grown out of by next summer.  I have no idea how that bag ended up in my son’s closet, but I’m hoping for a few more weeks of summer-like weather so that she can at least wear those clothes!!

One thing that I think it is perfect weather for is grilling.  I know that typically, summer is “grill season”.  And while I totally agree, I kind of like grilling the most when the weather cools down a little bit and you can spend some time outside, grilling while the kids play in the backyard.  And now, since the days are kind of cooling down, the evenings are mostly perfect grilling weather.

So how about a pizza showdown?  A grilling pizza showdown?  If you are a regular reader, you know that I’ve been trying to get more comfortable on the grill this year.  One thing I have been wanting to try is grilling pizza.  So when the folks at Pillsbury asked if I’d like to participate in a pizza grilling showdown using their new Artisan Pizza Crust, you can bet that I said yes!!  It was actually easier than I was expecting, although I still need a little bit of practice.  (Yes, my edges got a little bit overcooked, but that’s what grilling is all about, right?? :))  I saw a pizza topping combination forever ago that I had been wanting to recreate at home, and I knew that this was the perfect opportunity.  Canadian bacon.  Artichoke hearts.  Fresh tomatoes.  And lots of cheese – both mozzarella and feta.  This was definitely a winning flavor combination in my book!!

    Although I love autumn as well summer seems to have passed us by. Lets crank up the barbecue and get in out last meals while we still can.

  6. I’m going to miss summer. It definitely wasn’t long enough this year. Love the way you topped your pizza.

  7. Sasha says:

    This would probably be pretty awesome with bechamel sauce, a la Artichoke Pizza in NYC. Have you ever had it? It’s heavenly.

    WAAAAAHHHH I don’t want summer to end!! Actually I kinda like fall, but despise winter, that’s the problem. BLEH! This looks delicious. I love that you’ve started photographing all of the ingredients. I’d do that, but I am lazy bones. 🙂

  9. We love grilled pizza and the combination of canadian bacan and artichokes sounds wonderful!

  10. As much as I love fall, I will say that summer flew by way too quickly and I can hardly believe that my kids are already back at school! Grilled pizza is one of the things I relish about the grilling season and this flavor combo sounds wonderful, Deb!

    I bought a 12″ UNglazed ceramic tile at local hardware store, and use it on my grill like an oven stone w/ a little cornmeal. It cost me $2.69 and the crust doesnt get burned like it can with foil only. Just a tip!
