Grilled Pizza

As you know, the hubby and I got ourselves a new grill for our anniversary.  We've been addicted to it ever since.  We've probably cooked 90% of our meals on the grill since bringing the bad boy home.  It's not like we didn't have a grill before, we did.  And we liked cooking on it.  But this new one is gas and the old was charcoal.  And sometimes after getting home from a hard day's work, we just didn't have time to wait for the charcoal to get ready.  Now we don't have to wait and I love it.

We grilled homemade pizzas the other day and I don't think I've ever made a pizza more delicious.  I believe we will be doing it again, and very soon.  Father's Day is this weekend, wouldn't a family "build your own pizza" cookout be fun?!

What You'll Need: 
  • Pizza crust, divided into small sections for individual servings
  • Olive oil
  • Sauce
  • Cheese
  • Pizza toppings (we used sausage, pepperoni, red onion, and canadian bacon this time around)
What You Do:

Preheat grill.

Shape the dough into rounds, either stretching it by hand or using a rolling pin.

When the grill is hot, have all of your toppings in an assembly line nearby.

Begin by coating one dough round with olive oil and placing it oil side down on the grill.  Drizzle the top with oil now.

After two to three minutes the crust should be set.  If not, give it another minute or so.  When the crust is set, remove it from the heat and transfer it to a plate, flip it over so the cooked side is up, and add the toppings.

Repeat the process with the rest of the dough rounds.

Grill the topped pizzas until the crust is set and the cheese is melted.
