Grilled Pizza

"This was so much fun!! and so good!! Can't wait to do it again. Stretching the dough instead of rolling it makes it nicely uneven, creating crispy textures. We topped with sliced tomatoes, sliced mushrooms, tender crisp asparagus and parmesan cheese, sprinkled with oregano and thyme. We just used one dough ball. from the local newspaper."

directions

  • to make the seasoning: In a small ssaucepan combine all the seasoning ingredients. Whisk over low heat just until warm and oil becomes fragrant. Remove from heat and let rest for 2 hours at room temperature.
  • The Pizza bread: Lightly flour the back of a 15 x 10 inch baking sheet and one of the pizza dough balls. Stretch out the dough to the size of the baking sheet. Place the stretched dough on the back of the baking sheet.
  • Stir the seasoned oil and liberally brush the surface of the dough. Turn the baking sheet (like a big spatula) with the dough directly onto cooking grate. Remove the baking sheet and liberally brush the top side of the dough with the seasoned oil.
  • Grill over direct medium heat until the underside of the dough is marked, 1 to 3 minutes. Don't worry if the crust bubbles, it will deflate when turned over.
  • Slide the dough onto the baking sheet and flip the ungrilled side onto the grill. Brush the top with more oil and continue to grill for 3 to 4 minutes.
  • Remove from grill and cool slightly on a cooling rack. Add toppings, return to grill, close lid and grill to desired doneness (cheese melts etc.) Repeat grilling procedure for 2 remaining balls of dough.

    How low/high do you set the grill? My 3-burner gets very hot.

    Excellent flavor! I used another recipezaar recipe for the dough itself, and italian-herb seasoned hamburger with diced salami and chopped tomatoes for the topping, under mozzarella/cheddar blend. The seasoning and method of this recipe were wonderful - with one word of caution. ***Please make sure you don't have even small puddles of the olive oil seasoning on your pizza crust when you flip it - I did, and the resulting instant fireball from my gas BBQ grill removed some of my eyelashes and required a haircut on my bangs to even out the burned edges! Possibly, I'm a dork... but it just didn't register beforehand. sigh. I'm still giving it 5 stars, how's that for a great tasting recipe?!

    I can't believe I have waited 7 years to review this AMAZING pizza! The seasoning alone needs 5 stars. The seasoning MAKES this pizza! It's pretty much what I'm reviewing since I'm a 'lazy' cook. I cheat and use Pillsbury pizza dough. I also don't return the pizza to the grill, since I'm not grill savvy... I throw it in the oven to finish it off after adding seasonings. But the seasoning.... oh my. Who cares about how the pizza is finished. Brush your dough with the mixture, grill, it, and do the rest as you please. Delish!!!

    I made this recipe using my BakerStone oven on my grill and cooked it from frozen dough in under five minutes! I have an indoor model I used on my gas stove and cooked a pizza from raw dough in 2:28! I shredded some asiago on top as well for a little different flavor profile.

    I used different toppings because of what I had on hand, but wow, was this good! The crust will cook VERY quickly, so make sure you keep an eye on it. I burnt my first round, but they still tasted good. I love that you get the flavor of the barbecue and don't have to heat the house with the oven.

    As everyone has mentioned, the seasoning is everything. I didn’t bother heating mine up, just mixed it, and it was great. I used my own homemade sourdough dough and it grilled perfectly. I ended up finishing my pizza under the broiler after adding the toppings- olive oil smokes at pretty low temperatures and my electric grill was smoking like crazy after grilling 2 pies. Broiled for 4 minutes and it was delicious.

    Make sure there are NO globules of oil on dough before flipping.
