Grilled Pizza

I’ve read articles about grilling pizza for years. We finally gave it a go. I don’t know if I’ve said it before but pizza may be my favorite food. I can eat it daily. To make life easy we used Trader Joe’s pre-made pizza dough. A 1 pound ball produces one large regular crust pizza with a crispy outside and soft inside or two thin crust pizzas. We had 2 balls one white and one wheat so we tried both sizes. It was much easier to make two small pizza’s… being able to flip raw dough onto the grill without making a mess takes mad skilz.

What we made:
Wheat pizza dough with onions,peppers, shrooms, buffalo mozz and tomato sauce.
White pizza dough with tomato sauce, buffalo mozz, fresh basil, crushed black pepper and sea salt.

Step by Step Instructions

The directions say to brush the raw dough with olive oil before grilling. We used olive oil mixed with crushed garlic cloves to add a little zing.

It was time consuming to make but well worth it. The pizza turned out delicious. Just like those fancy artisanal pizza joints with brick ovens.

  1. I have been making grilled pizzas for probably 7+ years now and dont worry your speed will improve in making them- like anything you develop a feel for it and learn about the hotspots on the grill-

    Your pies look great(that always makes laugh when I type it) like you have been making them for a long time- I always finish the pies with a drizzle of olive oil-

    In no time you will be scrapping the trader joes dough and making your own-They do make a good dough though-

  2. Kahuna, Thanks for the words of encouragement. I hope to make pies that look as good as yours in the near future.

  3. Love the white dough pizza, not too thrilled with the wheat pizza dough
