Grilled Pizza

My family and I love pizza, who doesn’t?!?!? I usually make my own pizza at home. This year we even started using the grill to make it. It’s very easy and very tasty. But I can’t stress enough it’s all in the prep work. You MUST be prepared with all your items before your dough hits the grill. Grilling pizza goes very fast and very easy to burn.Here are the steps I used.

1. A few hours before making the pizza I minced up garlic to infuse my olive oil. You will be brushing the dough with oil so it doesnt stick to the grill. So why not add another layer of flavor?!?!

2. I used store-bought pizza dough and cut into thirds to make personal sized pizza.

(I really want to try to make my own dough next time, I’ll keep you posted on how it comes out.)

3. Using flour I rolled out and stretched to dough. Placing them on a tray dusted with flour and wax paper in between each little pizza.

4. Gather up all ingredients. This part is personal preference. We use sauce, cheese, grilled veggies, ham, salami, pepperoni, leftover grilled chicken, and  BBQ sauce(instead of red sauce, my son prefers this.) Don’t forget your olive oil too.

5. Make sure your gill is hot. We turn the grill down to  low heat so the dough cooks through and doesn’t burn. Brush one side of the dough with the garlic infused olive oil. Place on the grill and brush the other side of the dough. Close lid and put a timer on for two minutes. After the two minutes check dough to see if it needs to be flipped. It should have nice grill markings on it.

6. As soon as your turn your pizza top your pizza with your desired toppings.

7. Shut the lid and put the timer on for another two minutes and check, cheese should be melted and the crust should have nice grill marks.
