Have you ever had a grilled pizza? Nestled in Providence, Rhode Island is the famous grilled pizza place, Bob & Timmy’s. Grilling a pizza is definitely a unique way of preparing it. They start by soaking the dough in olive oil and then begin grilling it before adding any toppings. Your tastes buds can immediately tell that it was grilled by the smoky flavor of the crust – which is no thicker than pita bread.
Their grilled pizza has made Bob & Timmy’s popular enough to support two restaurants in the Rhode Island, and I dined at the Federal Hill location. I enjoyed being able to eat on the outside patio there, and I believe the one in North Smithfield has a similar option. My pizza was their Great White, but I think I would have been better served to order one with traditional red sauce. I did, however, enjoy the nice gooey cheese on it. Overall, I liked Bob & Timmy’s, but I don’t think I am as big of a fan of the charcoal-grilled crust as some others may be.
