Pizzology is one of our favorite treats – they support lots of local farms (and breweries!) by using locally and seasonally-sourced ingredients as much as possible. They have this grilled romaine salad that is so delicious. I attempted to recreate it last week, and it was so easy! I used romaine, but I think you could easily use red or green leaf lettuce too – just remove the outer leaves for a regular salad, so that you’re left with the tighter cluster of lettuce.

Grilled Romaine Salad
A Pizzology Copycat


1-2 heads of romaine
2 tbsp olive oil
Juice of one lemon
Fresh herbs (if available) – we used basil and oregano because that’s what we had in the garden
Handful of cheese (optional) – we used feta above, but any blue cheese or Parmesan would be delicious too
Salt and pepper to taste


Preheat grill until it reaches at least 350 degrees. Wash and thoroughly dry the lettuce. Cut the romaine hearts down the middle, but not all the way, so that the base keeps them mostly intact. Drizzle the romaine liberally with olive oil and salt and pepper. Grill for a few minutes on each side until slightly charred. Remove from grill, squeeze the lemon juice on top, garnish with fresh herbs and cheese if desired. Serve immediately.
