Making a 12″ Grilled Pizza is so simple….

Grilled Pizza is one of the easiest things to make.Nothing beats the smoky flavor of pizza crust topped with cheese & your favorite toppings.

Here’s what you need:

For the crust:

 

For the topping:

Here’s what you want to do:

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour and salt and mix well.
  2. Make a well in the middle and add the yeast.
  3. Add 1/2 of the water into the well and wait about 30 seconds.  Stir everything together while adding the rest of the water and the olive oil.  Fold the dough into itself.
  4. Knead the dough for 3-4 minutes, making a smooth ball that bounces back at you when poked.  If dough is too sticky, add tiny amounts of flour into the dough until it isn’t sticky.
  5. Allow dough to rest for about 15 minutes. If you are going to make this ahead and use the next day, cover the dough and keep it in the refrigerator.  Allow the dough to return to room temperature before stretching it out.
  6. Preheat the grill to about 400º F.
  7. On a floured surface,  flatten the ball of dough out starting from the center, and pressing outward.
  8. Once the dough is flattened to about 12″ in diameter, it is ready be set into a pan, put on a stone, or right onto the greased grill grates itself.

  9. Coat the bottom of the pan or the top of the pizza stone with a layer of cornmeal.  Grease the grill grates if you are not using a pan or stone.
  10. Set the dough in the pan, stone, or grates for about 2 minutes to allow the dough to begin to cook. **** If you are grilling directly on the grates, after the dough gets a bit firm after the 2 minutes, flip it over before putting on the toppings.
  11. Top the dough with the sauce, cheese, oregano, and any other topping and allow to continue grilling for another 8-10 minutes.   ****If you are grilling directly on the grates, the grilling time might be much shorter.  Watch your pizza so that the crust won’t get burned.Grilled Pizza is one of the easiest things to make.Nothing beats the smoky flavor of pizza crust topped with cheese & your favorite toppings.Grilled Pizza is one of the easiest things to make.Nothing beats the smoky flavor of pizza crust topped with cheese & your favorite toppings.
