Grilling is manly. Pizza is awesome. So what do you call it when you put them together? Mawsome? Mansome? Awsly? (Probably not “Awsly.”) Whatever it is, it’s perfect for Father’s Day!

This Father’s Day, take the pizzeria outdoors and experience pizza like never before. These mansome recipes helped win Chef Craig Jones the title Grill Mayor from Food Network in 2012—and they bring pizza’s crusty, cheesy, satisfying greatness to another level. One of these recipes is sure to be just right for the dad in your life: healthy Mushroom-Artichoke, meaty Salami, Sausage & Bacon or flavorful Thai Chicken.

“The bottom line is to just get creative,” says Craig. “Use dried fruits for sweetness. Try an Alfredo sauce for a different twist. The point is to just have fun.”

Tip: To grill pizzas like a pro, you’ll need a pizza stone and pizza peel (the wide paddle used by pizza chefs to pull pies out of the oven).
