Chef Tip:
> To grill sausage and pizza, prepare an outdoor grill for direct grilling over medium-low heat. Grill sausage, covered, 15 minutes or until cooked through and browned. Increase heat to medium-high; grill pizzas, covered, 5 minutes or until bottoms are browned, rotating pizzas occasionally.
