A Very Primo Pizza Party
Outdoor Pizza on a Primo Ceramic Grill
Over the Labor Day weekend we visited our Duluth friends John and Liz. We missed Liz as she was out of town on a girls weekend, but we had fun with John, his fishing buddy Clint, and John’s son Tyson. Saturday evening was our treat, a pizza party. John has a new Primo Grill, and we were very interested to see how it would do as a pizza oven. Verdict: 100% success! Take a look and see how easy it is to throw your own pizza party. I guarantee it will be the best pizza you’ve ever had.

Note: this is an unsponsored post (hint, hint!). I was very impressed with the performance of the Primo grill, and I’m a huge fan of the Artisan Pizza book and the Emile Henry stone. Note: you can use the stone and your artisan bread skills in your home oven with great success. Also, I have had good success on a Weber grill, although getting the balance between a perfect crust and well browned toppings is much easier on the Primo.
Primo Grill – One of several brands of high quality ceramic grills. They are an investment, but worth considering for a dedicated outdoor cook. I don’t own one, yet…
Artisan Pizza & Flatbread in 5 Minutes a Day – revolutionary approach to pizza and bread crust. This book is all about pizza, flatbreads, and variations. A pizza bible.
Emile Henry pizza stone – Sturdy and thick, the glazed top allows you to bake more than just bread. Get the biggest one your stove/grill will allow.
Northern Waters Smokehaus – great charcuterie and smoked fish. Look them up when you visit Duluth. They also make killer sandwiches!
Duluth Farmers Market – in its 100th year (wow!), a friendly group of local food producers.
