Who doesn't love a summer barbecue? And yes, dads especially. So why not surprise them on their day this year with something a little more adventurous than a hamburger on the grill?
Sure, everyone loves a good steak and a few corn on the cob. But try grilling a pizza!

Pizza was invented over an open flame, so it only makes sense that you'd get a wonderful crispy crust on your barbecue.
Canadian chef Bob Blumer even co-authored a book last year devoted to pizza on the grill.
For more ideas, take a listen to food columnist Julie Van Rosendaal on the Calgary Eyeopener.
