Pizza on the Grill

Last night, we tried out a recipe from Pizza on the Grill. My husband chose "Grilled Pineapple and Pancetta" pizza. I thought it was really good. By the time I got around to taking a picture, this was all that remained of it. We will definitely be using this combination again.
{Grilled Pineapple and Pancetta Pizza}
modified by me
4 oz pancetta, sliced 1/4" thicked, or slab bacon, diced
1 can pineapple rings, drained
1 Tbsp vegetable oil
sprinkle of sugar
3 green onions, roots trimmed
sprinkle kosher salt
1 ball pizza dough (I used Trader Joe's ready-made pizza dough)
1/2 C Onion Marmalade
6 oz Camemebert cheese, sliced

Cook the pancetta in a small skillet over med-high heat until crispy, and drain on a paper towel.
Brush the pineapple rings and green onions with oil. Sprinkle the pineapple rings with sugar and the green onions with salt. Place directly over the heat on the grill. Grill 3-5 minutes per side, until the pineapple is well marked and the onion are limp and charred in spots. Chop the scallions.
Roll out the pizza dough, drizzle each side with oil and place on the grill. [The book recommends and indirect heat cooking method. I found that my grill worked best with both burners set to low.] Close the lid, wait 3 minutes without peeking. Check the crust, if necessary, continue cooking for a few minutes, until the crust is well-marked and nicely browned. Remove the crust to a rimless baking sheet, cooked side up.
Spred the entire crust with onion marmalade. Top with cheese. Arrange pineapple, and sprinkle with pancetta and green onions.
Finish grilling, with the lide closed, about 7-10 minutes until the cheese is melted.

{Onion Marmalade}
makes 1 Cup
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 Tbsp unsalted butter
3 large yellow onions, thinly sliced and rings separated
1 tsp kosher salt

Heat the oil and butter in a saucepan pan over medium heat. When the butter bubbles, add the onions and salt. Cook, covered, for 20 minutes, stirring occassionally. Remove cover and cook until the onions are golden in color, about 20 more minutes.
