Yesterday we had our friends over for lunch. We had BBQ pizza. I made a basic pizza dough then let everyone make their own pizzas. The kids had a lot of fun trying out new combinations. We then put the pizzas onto a hot pizza stone in the BBQ and cooked for 7 minutes each with the lid of the BBQ down. All of the pizzas tasted great and we had such a lovely day sitting outside in the warm sunshine.
Garlic and Parmesan cheese for starters.
