Priebe's passion for grilled pizza is illustrated in his first cookbook, in which he shares recipes from the Atlanta grilled pizza restaurant he ran for years. Also included are recipes for piadinas (which he describes as folded Italian sandwiches) salads and desserts. He has adapted his recipes for the home cook and explains how they can be made on outdoor grills (charcoal or gas) as well as indoor grills of all kindsfrom cast-iron skillets to panini presses. His detailed, step-by-step instructions on rolling out dough, building the dishes and physically putting them on the grill are easy to follow and are accompanied by color photographs. His pizza recipes, broken down into meat, chicken, seafood and vegetable varieties, are fun and innovativesmoked sausage with honey mustard and coleslaw, chicken and plantain with coconut sauce and crab with orange and beet salad, to name a few. Recipes for piadinas (made with grilled unleavened flatbread) and salads are less inspired but still enticing such as the PAT piadina, with pancetta, arugula and tomato, and escarole salad with lemon. Sweet and satisfying dessert recipes call for both pizza and piadina dough, and are grilled versions of traditional favorites like the apple tart and Grasshopper Pie.

My kids gave me this book as a present and it's one of the best presents ever. At first I kind of frowned at the idea of grilling pizzas. However, having now prepared many of the recipes in the book, I've totally changed my mind. They are absolutely delicious and, once you get the techniques down, very easy to make. I do recommend using a bread machine to make the dough and, while the dough's forming, you can prepare the other ingredients. I guarantee that once you get into grilling your own pizzas, you'll never eat any others.
Exceptional book about grilling a pizza! Even if you do not have a grill, other methods are described. Very thorough explanations! He used his imagination in putting flavors together. Why not you? Explore the book and your creativity!
