Have you tried grilling pizza dough before? If not, you have a new assignment for the week. I promise you will not be disappointed.

I like my pizza or flatbread thin and crispy.

We normally stick with traditional pizza favors {cheese, pepperoni, and veggies}. Last night, I decided to change it up some. Recently, I tried a flatbread with Gorgonzola, Caramelized Onions, and Arugula. I wanted to recreate those flavors at home with a this Grilled Flat Beer Bread. I decided to skip the Gorgonzola and used Feta. It’s a strong flavor that can overpower your dish. The Feta has a light flavor that paired well with light flavor beers. With the combo of sweet onions and earthy mushrooms, this was a winner. A drizzle of balsamic vinegar completed the dish.

This is a great appetizer for entertaining. You can make the dough and caramelized onions ahead of time. You can shape the dough and place on a lightly greased piece of parchment paper. When you’re ready to eat, place the bread on grill and remove the paper. Once finished, top with desired topping. I wouldn’t recommend cooking the bread ahead of time. Warm, fresh, dough is always better. You can also setup a topping bar and allow guest to top their flatbread with whatever topping they desire.

Tequesta Brewing Company- Der Chancellor

Recently, we talked about how I’ve never used a TBC beer on the blog. Huck decided that was unacceptable and went to the brewery to pick up some beer. I asked him to get the Der Chancellor. I wanted a light flavored beer for this recipe and this German Kolsch was perfect. They just so happened to be brewing Chancellor that day, so Huck asked for some Spent Grains to add to the recipe. If you’re a homebrewer, this is a great way to use all those leftover grains, and add texture to your recipes.

It’s no secret around this blog, we love Tequesta Brewing Company! If you follow me of Instagram, I’m sure you’ve noticed we go there weekly, and my office has TBC growler Friday, every Friday. They’re my favorite brewery, and they make some of my favorite beers.

If you’re not lucky enough to live a couple miles for TBC, I recommend any light flavor American Wheat, Lager, or Kolsch for the dough.
