Grilled Pizza Recipes

One of my favorite ways to cook pizza is on the grill. This is the closest you can get to wood fired pizza without a wood oven. There is nothing more impressive at an outdoor BBQ that throwing pizza on the grill either as an appetizer or for the main course. just remember to keep an eye on it or it will burn fast.

Grilled Pizza Recipe

1 recipe of Pizza dough seperated and tossed into 4 shells or 4 store bought pizza shells thawed

Heat the grill to medium high and brush the grate well with olive oil so the dough doesn't stick. brush the dough well with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.


Sun dried tomato sauce:
place about a cup of sun dried tomatoes, 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil, 3 cloves garlic and season with salt and pepper in an food processor. pulse to puree.

Pesto Sauce:
Put 1-2 cups fresh basil leaves, 1/2 cup pine nuts, salt & pepper to taste and 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil in food processor. pulse till smooth.

Spread a thin layer of either sauce listed above on the pizza dough and top with fresh slices of tomato and fresh mozzerella cheese (I prefer to get fresh mozzerella and slice it for the pizza rather than shred it) top with any of your favorite toppings (fresh is always best for this pizza recipe) and place directly on the grill. If you prefer a lighter crust, you can preheat a pizza stone or layer of brick plates on the grill. cook for 5-10 minutes turning with a metal spatula every few minutes. (be sure to check the bottoms for burning) the tops should not brown much but the crust will crisp well. allow to cool for 2 minutes before slicing and serving.
