Doing a par-bake on the pizza crust allows you to put a pizza with toppings on it into the the Foodi Grill.
Consider experimenting with sauces other than red sauce for the pizza. I enjoy using ranch salad dressing as a base layer for the pizza at times and also like using olive oil with a teaspoon of fresh minced garlic.
