Enjoy Pillsbury Pizza on the Grill {Prize Pack Giveaway}

Pillsbury logo
The information and prize pack have been provided by General Mills through MyBlogSpark.

When it comes to homemade pizza, it's no secret that Pillsbury Pizza Crusts are an easy and delicious way to save time and energy while still ending up with a fantastic result.

But did you know that you can get creative with them in more ways that simply various tasty recipes? In fact, with summer here, Pillsbury knows that families are spending as much time outdoors as possible... so, at your next barbeque, go ahead and enjoy your favorite pizza right on the grill!

grilled pizza recipes

Concerned that grilling pizza might be a bit difficult? I was.

Fortunately, Pillsbury has clear, easy to follow instructions for how to grill pizza, so I simply gathered our ingredients, pulled up the photo directions and was ready to go.

Pillsbury ingredients

While my husband warmed up the small grill, I sprayed a large piece of heavy duty foil with cooking spray and unrolled the dough.

Pillsbury pizza dough

Next, when the grill was hot and ready, I simply flipped the whole sheet of foil over so that the dough was directly on the rack and peeled away the foil.

For more savvy grill-users, the rest of the process should be pretty straightforward. Simply let the dough cook until the bottom is golden brown; flip the whole thing over and let it cook for a few minutes; remove from the grill to add sauce, cheese and toppings; and return to the grill to finish cooking.

Unfortunately for us, we unknowingly let our grill get far too hot, therefore ensuring that the dough would char on the outside while still staying uncooked on the inside...

...and, ultimately, ended up pretty much a failure.

That being said, I'm actually still pretty eager to try this method again! Pillsbury has so many delicious grilled pizza recipes that I'm sure with a little more practice we could be enjoying any number of their tasty ideas:
In addition, Pillsbury doesn't only want to give you ideas and recipes for tasty meals, they want you to win one of five brand new grills in their Pillsbury Pizza Pinspiration Sweepstakes!

Pillsbury sweepstakes

That's right! Simply create a Pillsbury Pizza Pinspiration Pinterest Board, pin at least three pizza recipes from Pillsbury.com, and head to Pillsbury.com to register your board. But hurry! This sweepstakes ends July 31st at 11:59pm, so get pinning!

For more information, examples and ways that Pillsbury can turn your next summer meal into a party of its own, visit Pillsbury.com and connect with them on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram and YouTube.

Plus, thanks to their generosity, one person will soon be grilling with the best of them, because...

One lucky person will win a Pillsbury Grilling Prize Pack*!
