Molto Buono Grilled Pizza with Crab, Artichoke, and Bacon

Share on FacebookRetweetShare on PinterestShare on Google PlusMore

Grilled Pizza with Crab, Artichoke and Bacon is a mouthwatering twist on traditional pizza.

When I first grilled it up for my Baltimore-born Sicilian grandmother she looked quite skeptical, but after her first bite, she leaned over and asked, “What’s the recipe, Beck?”

This grilled pizza is perfect folded over like a sandwich and eaten with your hands or slice it up and serve it as a tasty and stylish appetizer at your next party.

When grilling with savory Blue Crab crabmeat it’s important to note that it can dry out very quickly. To prevent this from happening make sure to drizzle it with a little of the artichoke marinade. Another scrumptious option would be to add a dab of ricotta cheese to the crabmeat and lightly mix it before placing it on the pizza.

Sure you can use King or Snow crabmeat, or even chopped shrimp or lobster meat, to dress up this pizza even further. Definitely serve this with a robust Chianti.

  • If you are using a charcoal grill, prepare the fire for medium high heat.
  • If you are using a gas grill, turn it on medium high heat.
  • Place a pizza stone on the grates leaving a little space for the bacon to cook.
  • Make sure the grates are well-seasoned.
  • Prepare the pizza.
  • On floured surface, turn out the pizza dough.
  • Begin rolling out the dough with a floured wooden rolling pin to form a 12-inch circle or four 4-inch squares no thicker than ¼ inch.
  • The crust should be very thin. Lightly spray the pizza pan with the olive oil spray.
  • Transfer the rolled-out dough onto a pizza pan.
  • Swirl the marinara sauce around the center of the pizza, leaving a ½-inch bare ring around the outside.
  • Lightly spray the exposed crust with olive oil.
  • Cover the pizza with the shredded cheese, crabmeat and artichoke slices.
  • Make sure the crabmeat is covered with a little of the artichoke liquid to prevent drying out.
  • Carefully place the pizza on the pizza stone and lay the bacon directly on the grates.
  • Cook the bacon for about 4 to 5 minutes per side until it is cooked and slightly crispy.
  • When the bacon is done remove it from the grill and chop it up and place it directly into the pizza even if it is still cooking.
  • Grill the pizza for 15 minutes, or until the cheese has melted and the crust is cooked and golden brown.
  • Depending on your grill, this cooking time may vary.
  • When the pizza is done, remove it from the grill and serve immediately.
  • For the Pizza
  • 1 tablespoon flour, if necessary when rolling out the pizza dough
  • 1 store-bought pizza dough for an 12-inch pizza (or homemade)
  • olive oil spray
  • 16 ounces store bought marinara sauce (or homemade)
  • For the Toppings
  • 16 ounces shredded mozzarella cheese
  • ½ pound fresh Blue Crab backfin crabmeat, picked through for shells, or King or Snow crabmeat
  • Handful of marinated artichokes quarters, sliced thin. Reserve a little of the marinade to drizzle on the crabmeat.
  • 3 pieces of your favorite bacon. If you are watching your weight, turkey bacon is fantastic.
