Kitchen Tip Tuesday:Grilled Pizza

I'm reposting this Kitchen Tip Tuesday from last June. While I'm not quite ready to heat up the grill, there are many of you in other parts of the states and countries who are and this is a keeper. 
Head over to Tammys Recipes for more tips.
 I had seen grilled pizza on TV a few times and thought hmmm..that sounds good and interesting. But I'll admit, I was a little nervous about trying it myself. But try it I did and it was wonderful. The key though is having everything ready to go because once the crust is on the grill, it doesn't take long.

I was so pleased with how it turned out!

Our grill with the ingredients ready to go. Make sure your grill is pre-heated. Brush grids with vegetable oil. I was a bit nervous about the dough drooping through the grids so I used tin foil and sprayed it with cooking spray. If you didn't catch my post last week, you can use a cut onion rubbed on the grill to keep things from sticking as well.

Use whatever ingredients you feel like using. Keep in mind these cook fast so they might not be perfectly hot. You can stick them in the oven for a bit after they're done grilling to finish cooking. I didn't, and it was just fine. Dough placed on the grill. It can't be too thick or it will not cook all the way. This is the recipe I used: 1 1/4 c. warm water 2 c. all-purpose flour 1 c. semolina flour (I didn't have this so I just used 3 c. regular flour) 1/2 tsp. white sugar 1 tsp. salt 2 tsp. olive oil 2 tsp. active dry yeast Place ingredients in the bread machine in order given and set to dough setting. When done divide into 4 pieces and form crust. (It doesn't have to be perfect. The more rustic looking the better) It starts to puff up and will begin to brown on the bottom. Watch this carefully so they don't burn. They cook very quickly. Maybe about 10 minutes on each side.
When lightly browned, flip over.
immediately begin adding the toppings. You need to work quickly because the bottom will begin to cook immediately.
YUM-O. I make my own sauce with tomato sauce, Italian seasoning and crushed garlic.
Close the grill to melt cheese and cook toppings. Use the lowest heat possible.

  1. Wow, those look delicious! Wish I had come to dinner at your house!

  2. WOW! Those did turn out great looking! They look yummy too! :)
    You have inspired me! Maybe I will be bold this summer and try this feat as well. :)

    Thanks for sharing!

  3. I am sooo trying this! It looks delish.

    Thanks for the compliment on my blog!

  4. We grill pizza all the time. I posted about it a couple of weeks ago. I don't bother with the foil though. It gives it a crisper crust if you don't and my husband likes that. Plus it cooks quicker. Thanks for sharing how you do it.

  5. your pizzas look so gourmet! Great job!
    we grill pizza fairly often, too ~ if you've recently cooked burgers, even plain cheese pizza is delicious & has a meaty flavor to it!
    Also - if your crust is plenty done, but the rest isn't quite - you can just turn the grill off & leave it closed to finish cooking the top.

  6. That looks delicious! I am drooling now.

  7. What pizza dough recipe did you use? I use one from a Webber Grilling cookbook so the recipe is designed for the grill. It is a little different then my normal pizza dough. I have the recipe on my blog. I have never had trouble with it falling through. But the foil probably keeps it from getting to done, so it might be better with the foil. Especially if your family does not like it crispy.

  8. You did post the recipe. I meant where did it come from? I am having one of those days. :) I think I have spent too much time reading online today. :)

  9. That looks great! I think I saw Bobby Flay grill pizza's on television once, now I know it can be done. We are having pizza tomorrow so I might be brave enough to try it.

  10. These pizzas look really delicious. Seriously. We love to grill. It is one our favorite ways prepare our food in the summer. I am definitely going to try this. Thank you so much.

  11. those look amazing! I can't wait until we have a grill and can make pizza that way... right now all we have is a george forman -- not sure that would work too well.
