Two weeks ago, Our Virginia Home had the opportunity to try a variety of food products by EVOL foods. In our first review of Evol Foods, we cooked pizzas in the oven. We decided the 4th of July was the perfect opportunity to try them on the charcoal grill. With temperatures reaching the upper nineties and a household full of people, we were able to keep the indoor temperature comfortable by cooking outside instead. We received three pizza varieties to try on the grill:
- Meatballs & Mozzarella
- Four Cheese & Basil
- Chicken, Spinach, and Ricotta
For the first pizza that we cooked on the charcoal grill, we placed it directly on the center of the grill. However, the heat was too high and we burned the bottom. For the second pizza, we used foil underneath the pizza. Although we tried to keep the heat down on the grill, this can be difficult to control when using charcoal. The second method worked a lot better because it helped disperse the heat.
EVOL founder Phil Anson said in his video tutorial, you don’t want to place your pizza directly over the flames. As you can see in the photo, this is one of the mistakes that we made.
After we finished grilling, Matt suggested that using hardwood may have been a good alternative to charcoal. We wish we would have thought about using some of our cherry wood. I think this would have tasted really good with the Four Cheese & Basil pizza.
EVOL Foods – Makers of a Healthy Pizza
I think it was a surprise for some of our guests to see ricotta cheese on a pizza. It actually tastes really good and compliments the spinach very well. It was also nice to provide an option that was healthy and introduce a product that has natural and organic ingredients. Each of the pizzas are available on a stone-fired pizza crust and have only ingredients that you’ll recognize:
Chicken, Spinach & Ricotta: Fire-grilled white meat chicken, spinach, ricotta cheese, roasted garlic, homemade tomato sauce, sprinkled with an Italian cheese blend and chopped basil. Natural, 14g Protein, 2g Fiber (per serving)
Meatballs & Mozzarella: Italian meatballs, mozzarella cheese, homemade tomato sauce and chopped basil. Natural, 18g protein, 2g Fiber (per serving)
