Want that pizzeria taste without having to go to a pizzeria? This grilled pizza recipe will have you grilling pizza year-round. You'll never want to bake another pizza in your oven!
You may want to partially cook some of your toppings because this recipe will only heat the toppings and melt the cheese. For the pizza pictured above, I tossed some green and red bell peppers, onions and mushrooms in a little olive oil and roasted them on a baking sheet at 400° F. for 20 minutes before using them to top the pizza. I also finished it under the broiler for a few minutes to brown the top.
Here's what you are going to need:
Pizza Dough (I just bought pizza dough from the local supermarket in the bakery section but a good Italian bread dough recipe will work great.)
For the sauce:(this will make enough sauce for 2 large pizzas...if you are only making one pizza, you can always freeze the leftover sauce for next time)
1 can (15 ounce) crushed tomatoes
1 teaspoon basil
1 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon of garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1/4 teaspoon of pepper
1 cup of mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup of Parmesan cheese
whatever toppings you like (you may want to partially cook some of your toppings because they really only get heated on top of the pizza)
Here's what you need to do:
Preheat your grill with the lid closed to between 500-600 degrees F.
Have all of your topping ready and next to the grill for quick assembly.
While the grill is preheating, roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface.
Lightly flour the top of the dough and gently roll it onto your rolling pin.
Brush you grill grates with canola oil and roll the dough off of the rolling pin and onto the grill.
Close the lid and cook until nicely browned. This will only take a few minutes.
Brush the top lightly with Olive Oil and flip.
Quickly top your pizza with your favorite toppings or remove it from the grill, top and return to the grill. Close the lid.
Check the bottom after a couple of minutes.
