DIRECTIONS

  • For the dough: in a medium bowl, combine the yeast sugar and water.
  • Whisk until all the yeast is melted.
  • Let stand for 5-10 minutes.
  • Add two cups of the flour, salt, pepper, garlic and olive oil.
  • Stir with your hands until the dough holds together.
  • Transfer the dough to a lightly oiled surface (use oil not flour as it lends a crunchier crust). Knead until the dough is smooth about 8-10 minutes.
  • Shape into a ball and let stand in an oiled bowl covered in a warm place for about an hour or until the dough doubles in size.
  • Punch down the dough and transfer again to a lightly oiled surface.
  • Divide the dough into to equal pieces.
  • Stretch the dough with your hands until the dough is about 1/8 inch thick.
  • Slide the dough to a lightly oiled baking sheet.
  • Slide the dough onto the grill and cook uncovered directly over a medium heat until the grill marks are clearly visible.
  • Brush the dough with olive oil.
  • The crust may bubble but that is ok as it will deflate as you turn it.
  • Turn the dough and brush again with olive oil.
  • Top first with your cheese choice as the cheese will melt evenly being put on first.
  • Next add you sauce and then toppings.
  • Grill for about 5 minutes more or until cheese is melted.
  • It is best after you add the toppings to close the grill and view every three minutes until the cheese is melted.
  • I did not specify a quantity for the cheese as everyone likes different amounts of cheese.
  • Let the pizza rest a few minutes before cutting it.
  • I added minced garlic to my olive oil for brushing.
