Grilled pizza seems to be all the rage nowadays, but I’ve never had the opportunity to try making it myself. I’ve heard from other people about either how easy it was to make or how much of a disaster it was. I decided to give it a go and hope for the best. I must say I was a little nervous when the dough first went on the grill, but boy was I really happy with the end result. I was lucky enough to have some fresh tomatoes from my father-in-law’s garden, but you can use whatever ingredients you have on hand. I also went with store bought dough to save on time (which I haven’t had much of lately), but if you’ve got the time you can make your own. Grilled Margherita Pizza
- store bought or homemade dough
- generous amount of olive oil
- toppings of your choice
Preheat grill to 300 degrees. Divide dough into two portions. With a rolling pin on a lightly floured surface, roll each portion into two 1/4″ thick pizzas. Coat one side in olive oil and place directly on grill grates for about 5 minutes or until dough begins to rise. Once dough has risen, flip pizzas over and coat other side with olive oil. Cook for about 5 more minutes. Remove from heat and add toppings of your choice to each pizza. Add back to the grill until cheese begins to melt and the bottom crust has browned.
