Grilled Pizza

My Fiance and I invited a few friends over awhile back to see if we can grill pizza! I was a bit hesitant but it worked out perfectly!!!

Things you need:
Outdoor grill
Pizza Dough (we got ours from Trader Joes!)
Pizza Sauce (we used tomato, pesto and bbq sauces)
Cheese (your choice!)
Toppings (we had chicken, onions, salami, mushrooms, basil, peppers... this can be endless)
Olive oil
Basting brush

If you are using a store bought dough like we did make sure you read the directions because the dough itself may need to be out in room temperature for a while before you use it. Start up your grill and it should be at about 300-350 degrees.

So what you do is flatten out your dough for your pizza. Rolling pin is great! Do not roll it out too thin or you might have trouble transferring it to the grill.

Before you place your dough on the grill make sure you spread olive oil on both sides of the dough with a basting brush so that your dough does not stick on the grill. Once you have done that you may put your dough onto the grill.

What I might try next time is maybe instead of olive oil... I might try butter and sprinkle some garlic salt so that you have a nice garlic bread to go with my pasta!

Once on the grill you will see that dough is cooked. It is pretty fast. Once one side is cooked flip it over and cook the other side. While the other side is cooking you can now put your sauce, cheese and toppings. Close the lid of the grill for a bit so that the cheese can melt and TADA you are finished!
