Making Pizza on the Grill

Last summer was the first time I made pizza on the grill. I watched several You Tube videos and read a few websites before starting. Making pizza on the grill reminds me of stir frying in that you should have all your ingredients at the ready, because like stir frying, the actual cooking part is a pretty quick process.

If you haven't tried pizza on the grill yet, you really must! I make my own dough, my own sauce, and I even mix my own Italian sausage. You can use whatever your favorites are. 

When grilling pizza, you first cook the dough for several minutes on one side, then you flip and add toppings, return to the grill and finish. I like to make individual pizzas as they are much easier to handle. I also don't bother rolling them out to a perfect circle, I prefer the more rustic look. :) 

Hope you try it!

Interesting blog. Just yesterday a friend of mine was talking about how great is pizza on the grill. I have never tried or even heard about if before that. Now I really want to try it! Thanks!

I just made grilled pizza yesterday for the first time. It was soooo easy and delicious. Everyone loved it and we'll be making it again very soon. I also watched several YouTube videos first.

F&H Mom - You really have to try it, it's fabulous! PecosLady - doesn't it rock?? :) 400luv - oh bummer. Well grills are pretty cheap, just hold on to the recipe, then you make it when you get one :)

What a wonderful idea, Amanda. I would not have thought of pizza on the grill but now you are opening new horizons.

I love making grilled pizza! It is great for individual pizzas, but If you want larger ones, just roll them out on waxed paper, or the serving tray you will be using. I have some large, round, solid piza trays from Target and I just oil the side of the bread facing me, flip the tray (containing the oiled bread) onto the grates and remove the tray. A couple of minutes later, the 'toasted' side can be managed by tongs to be flipped and dressed, while the bottom 'toasts'. Yum!

I made naan on the grill last summer and this looks awesome! I'll give this one a try on a "too hot to cook inside" summer day. Probably be great for rising dough too. :) thanks.

barbara - on a boat? That's awesome! Thanks Chaya, hope you try it! DA Cook - Great idea with the round pizza pan! I have one of those too, never thought of using it for that though. DUH. Brilliant! Sarah - perfect for a hot summer day, that's when I made them too. Today is perfect, it's almost 90 here :-O

I'm jealous, I haven't been able to do any grilling since I moved into my current apartment. I go out to the park with the bf and he likes to use those disposable grill pans. Those pizza's must have a smoky flavor. I want them!

I have a cast iron grill pan, but never thought to try it with the pizza. I wonder if that would be an option for you?

About Me
My favorite things to cook
I love baking, especially cookies and cakes. :) I love cooking too, but I like to experiment, which can occasionally mean take out! ;)
My favorite family cooking traditions
I grew up in the convenience food era. My parents were divorced and I was a latch key kid. There weren't a whole lot of home cooked meals in my childhood, but lots of packaged and frozen goods. I try to make dinner every night for my family, though sometimes it's take out due to sports activities, etc. I'm envious of those that have their grandmother's recipes, I don't have anything like that.
My cooking triumphs
i've created a few recipes of my own, one I even won a contest for :) I love experimenting and finding new ways to combine flavors. I feel triumphant every time I bring something to my neighbors, they always give me rave reviews!
My cooking tragedies
I try to prepare whatever I can early in the day, so that the hectic afternoon is less... well, hectic! I tend to be pretty frugal, so I'm always pantry diving. I also menu plan every week, it saves me from A) running to the store in the middle of the week and B) getting take out.
