a bbq recipe.


for me, the ultimate summertime bbq session is making pizzas with friends.
za parties are just the best on the grill, 
especially when someone knocks your socks off with a new creation.
i discovered this balsamic reduction pizza last night at my dear friend molly's.
she's a doll and offered her recipe which is sure to win over everyone at your next dinner party.

balsamic reduction pizza
 - pick up pre-made dough from your favorite pizza spot. 
my personal favorite is mountain high pizza pie

to make balsamic reduction sauce...
- add 2 cups of balsamic vinegar and 1/4th cup of brown sugar to a sauce pan
- bring both to boil, then reduce to a simmer
- stir often for 10 to 15 minutes until sauce thickens and ready to drizzle on pizza

meanwhile...
- cook up some bacon strips and dice up once cooled
- caramelize yellow onions in the bacon grease 
(or just olive oil)
- slice a few pears to add as a topping

when reduction sauce is ready...
- spread dough out evenly and pour sauce evenly
- add chopped pears, bacon, and onions
- sprinkle with a little blue cheese and a little mozzarella

once pizza is ready...
- light one side of the grill and brush the other side with olive oil
- place the pizza on the oiled side and cover
(you don't want direct heat under the pizza or it will burn)
- cook until the crust starts to turn golden brown and rotate if needed

enjoy the goodness!  
here are a few other recipes from my favorite ladies of the mountains: here, here, here, here, and here
