Grilled Blue Pizza Recipe

Ingredients

  1. Onion Jam:
    2 tablespoons butter
    1 red onion, sliced thin
    Pinch salt and pepper
    2 tablespoons white wine
    For topping:
    4 small blue potatoes
    1 tablespoon butter
    1 shallot, minced
    1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
    1 cup milk
    Pinch salt and pepper
    ¼ cup freshly grated parmesan
    Pizza dough
    Crumbled blue cheese to taste

Directions

  1. Make onion jam: Sauté the onions in butter until soft and caramelized, about 15 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Add the wine and cook until dry. Reserve until ready to use.
  2. Meanwhile, place the potatoes into a small pot. Cover with cold water and bring to a boil and then reduce to a simmer. Cook until a skewer pierces easily into the potato, 12-15 minutes. Drain and place the potatoes into the refrigerator to chill.
  3. In a saucepan, melt the butter. Add the shallot. Cook for 15 seconds. Add the flour and stir with a wooden spoon until combined.
  4. Add the cold milk and whisk until smooth. Cook over low for 20 minutes whisking occasionally. Season with salt and pepper. Add the parmesan and whisk until combined. Set aside.
  5. Preheat a grill to medium temperature or about 450 degrees. Divide the dough into 4 pieces. Roll out each piece into whatever shape you choose that is about 1/8” thick. The more uneven and rustic the better. Place onto the hot grill. Cook until the bottom is just set and there are nicely golden grill marks.
  6. Flip over and spread the pizza with some of the cheese sauce. Top with some of the onion jam and sliced blue potatoes. Close the lid. Remove when the potatoes are hot and the crust is golden. Top with some of the crumbled blue cheese. Slice and serve.
