Daphne Oz shares some simple, approachable tips and a delicious grilling recipe.
In some ways, grilling is one of the easiest ways to cook food. Although the method might seem difficult because of the fire, the reality is that the grill does all the work. But, cooks have to let that happen.
Simply stated, Oz said to resist the urge to flip. According to Oz, “It’s tempting to keep flipping food around on the grill — but you really don’t want to touch it too much to maximize flavor with char and sizzle. You don’t need to constantly flip — or press!!! — food down. Just sit back, relax, and get ready to eat!”
While this idea doesn’t necessarily mean that the cook should imbibe into too many 5 o’clock fuzz cocktails, the reality is that grilling doesn’t mean stare at the flames. Similar to the old concept, a watch pot never boils, the food isn’t going to cook better by standing over it.
During the cooking demo, Oz created the delicious grilling recipe for Grilled White Pizza with an Everything Bagel Crust. While she recommended this food as a starter, it could be a meal, too. Grilled pizza could a Friday night summer favorite.
Although some people might consider pizza that super indulgent treat, it doesn’t have to be a gluttony of goodness. With a few swaps, that pizza is void of all those pesky “g” words.
Oz said, “I also like to keep it in balance – when I’m eating healthy, I still want those meals to be memorable and celebratory. This is the perfect example of how you can have your pizza and eat it too.”
The recipe for the Grilled White Pizza with an Everything Bagel Crust is available online at WW, Weight Watchers Re-imagined.
