If you plan on staying in this weekend to veg out with pizza and a movie. why not make it more exciting and grill your own pizza. Trust us, it's the new totally hip thing to do. Impress your friends and family or even just your own tastebuds. We like Framed's recipe for Grilled Pizza with Bacon and Rosemary. Mostly because it had bacon and she takes pretty pictures.
