Grilled BBQ Filet Mignon Pizza

Pizza on the grill is much better than I thought.  Although I still need a little help finding the perfect dough; and I suspect one of the pizza parlors like Homemade Pizza Co would be the next place to go, store bought dough was easy.  Today, I am in love with pizza on the grill.  I feel like the flavor that comes off the grill justifies doing an untraditional combination of ingredientes.  So I did filet mignon with cheddar, sweet caramelized onions and portabella mushrooms.  I realize I didn’t discover this combination, but I think it is my new favorite pizza flavor.

Before you can even get started on the grill, chop or slice a sweet onion ( it depends how you like it) and sauté them in a pan with some butter, a little salt and olive oil.  Cook  until they caramelize.

So I used a premade thin dough from Dominicks.   First, season the filets and coat them with olive oil before putting them on the grill.  I cooked my filet to medium rare and sliced them thin.    For the sauce, I used Sweet Baby Rays on the dough (but do not spread too much).  After cleaning 2 large portabellas mushrooms, dry them and slice them as well.   Give them a light coat of olive oil and lightly grill them. I only left them on the hot grill for about 1-2 minutes per side.  I didn’t want them to shrink.

Once you have all these pieces:

  • Sliced medium rare filets
  • Sweet caramelized onions
  • Lightly grilled portabella mushrooms

Then you can assemble it. I turned the grill down a bit, so the dough didn’t over cooked.  This will also ensure that the ingredients including shredded medium cheddar cheese meld together. It took about 12-15 minutes for it to cook completely.  I forgot to take a picture so this is someone elses.  Let me know if you have dough suggestions.
