It’s Pizza Night! My favorite night of the week. Pizza is a food group in our home because everyone loves it and it keeps my family satisfied. As a pizza enthusiast, I have tried it all ways.

But, my favorite way by far to enjoy pizza is by grilling it. It doesn’t have to be grilling season to make grilled pizza either. I have been known to be standing in 40-degree weather grilling pizza just for a slice of perfection.

There is just something about the wood-fired crust that gets me every time!

So where did grilled pizza originate from? Here is a little history lesson. I have done some research and all the history of grilled pizza points to Al Forno in Providence, Rhode Island. Chef-owner Johanne Killeen and her late husband and co-chef, George Germon, admired the simplicity, elegance and seasonality of regional-Italian cooking.

George learned about grilled pizza from his fishmonger, who recalled how they would make grilled pizza in his hometown in Italy. George liked the idea, experimented to create his own style of grilled pizza for his restaurant and the rest is history.
