Grilled Pizza

Grilled Pizza
from Our Best Bites

pizza dough
your toppings (cut, sliced, shredded, etc) including sauce (have all of this ready on one tray to make it easier.)
some olive oil

1. Preheat grill to a medium heat.
2. When your dough is ready, roll it out with a rolling pin. (Several small pizzas is easier to flip on the grill.)
3. Once your dough is flattened out, drizzle olive oil on one side and brush it around.
4. Place the oil side down on the grill and shut the lid. (You'll want the heat to stay inside so it acts like an oven. The timing all depends on the heat of the grill and the thickness of the dough. But it usually only take about five minutes or less. Have a spatula ready to lift up the dough and check it. You;ll want to see nice brown grill marks, but avoid burning it. If you can tell your dough is cooking too fast and too hot, you may want to use indirect heat.)
5. Ok, now you have to work fast on this next part. (I actually took my dough off of the grill and placed on a plate while I topped it with the toppings.) As soon as you flip it, grab the tray with your topping and put them on the cooked side right away. Shut the lid again and leave it shut. The second side cooks pretty fast. (If the crust is done but the cheese isn't melted, place on a upper rack if you have one.)

*Oh my gosh! These were absolutely delicious! Next time I will do sliced Mozzarella cheese like Our Best Bites did. The dough was awesome! It was so soft on the inside, yum! Definitely a new favorite pizza and a staple dough!

Yum, I've got to try grilling my next pizza. P.S. That banana cream pie recipe comes from Our Best Bites.
