From Sunrise to Supper on a Hot June Day

You know you're in for a hot one when the sunrise looks like this. . .

John made deep dish pizza -- baked on the grill. . .
A very nice way to end a hot June day!

Yes it was a hot one yesterday. After months of being cooped up I have taken up residence on my covered deck. However, yesterday it was close to 100 here and I had to be carfeul. I love the looks of that pizza. Yum. Your photos are wonderful. Thanks for sharing. I love visiting your blog.

Never a good sign when the sun looks like that, although it's sure pretty. It's been hot, hot, and humid here as well for a week. That pizza looks so good! Your husband is a gem, I think. :-)

The pizza looks wonderful. Does John share his crust recipe and baking recipe?

Very nice photos. We had 97 degrees in the last two days. Last night and early this morning we had lots of rain and storms. That deep-dish pizza sounds great. How do you bake it on the grill?

Vicki, I would be very interested in trying that baked pizza. Can you share the recipe? That's a new one on me.

Back in May of last year, I did a post on John's deep dish pizzas --

You can bake them in the oven at 400 for about a half an hour but John used the gas grill -- heated to 400 -- to keep the extra heat out of the kitchen. One warning. He put a cookie sheet below the grill surface to act as a baffle -- you don't want the flames in direct contact with the springform pan bottom.

Yes, Tammy, he is a gem!

Baking that pizza on a grill is a great idea. No oven heating up your house! That sun rise is a definite sign of what the day holds in store for you. No rain here either - and yet flooding is coming our way.

The meal looks enticing and tasty. I love pizza especially the deep pan type. That sun looks so hot. Larry tells me they are having a heatwave in Tennessee right now and since I'm not used to the heat, I'm almost glad I'm in England. We are having a drought over here, officially, in the south east. The temps. are about 70 degs. on average and that's just right for me.

Beautiful shot of the sun. The pizzas look great. At my house it is too hot to turn on the stove and make a dinner -- cold sandwiches fill the bill. -- barbara
