Easy Cheesy Pizzas on the Grill

READY IN: 17mins
Recipe by Ppaperdoll

From an old Pillsbury cookbook. I suppose you could use your own pizza crust recipe as well. Toppings can obviously vary according to taste.

Instead of refrigerated pizza crusts, I used frozen bread dough that I had thawed and rolled into the individual portions. The foil method of grilling really helps to prevent burned crusts on the grill. We added onions and mushrooms to our pizzas and had a very simple dinner on the patio with tossed salads.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (10 ounce) canrefrigerated prepared pizza crust
  • 12 cup pizza sauce
  • 1 12 ounces pepperoni, thinly sliced
