Memorial Day Recipe: Grilled Pizza

Kick off Summer with a Grilled Pizza

Memorial Day Weekend is traditionally a time to gather with friends and family but this year has made every normal activity different. We may not be able to gather with friends and family but we can always try fun, new recipes at home, enjoy games in the backyard with our family and maybe talk a walk in the park after dinner.

This Grilled Pizza recipe is a fun, new twist on a family staple. It is easy to prepare and delicious to serve this weekend. Enjoy!
