Homemade Grilled Pizza


I know grilled pizza sounds hard, but it really isn't! Jacob and I tried it for the first time tonight, and loved it. I especially liked that I didn't have to use the oven and heat up the house.
  • Make sure your grill is clean! You don't want your pizza to stick. 
  • Turn grill on to medium heat.
  • Mix up your favorite pizza dough. This is my all time favorite recipe. It's super quick and easy and oh so tasty!
  • Roll out dough on a lightly floured baking pan or stone. We made two smaller pizzas so they would be easier to handle.
  • Brush olive oil lightly onto both sides of the dough. You don't want to overdo on the oil or you will have flare-ups!
  • Gather all your toppings. We used sauce, pepperoni, mozzarella cheese, onions, and parmesan cheese. The onions didn't get quite cooked, so next time I will grill the veggies a little before putting them on the pizza.
  • Take pizza dough, toppings, and spatulas {pancake turners as we call them} out to the grill.
  • Lightly spray grill rack with cooking spray.
  • Carefully pick up pizza dough a lay it on the grill. Don't worry, it will not fall through the grate!
  • Close lid and cook for 1 1/2 minutes or until the bottom is browned and there are bubbles on top {like pancakes get}.
  • Use pancake turner and flip the dough over.
  • Working quickly, slap on your toppings and close grill lid. Cook 1 1/2 minutes or until bottom is browned and cheese is melted.
  • Carefully remove pizza to the baking pan or stone you used to roll the dough out on.
  • Cut into wedges and enjoy!

I think this is such a great idea! I've always seen chefs do this on TV, but I've never actually tried it myself. But it looks easy enough that I really should take a chance sometime!
