Grilled Pizza

Grilled Pizza with Tomatoes, Cheese and Broccoli
Grilling pizza has been on my to do list for awhile. I finally got around to trying it and I have to say it’s a winner. Grilling pizza gives it that smokey “grill” flavor that you just can’t achieve from the oven. My pizza is topped with tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese, sliced tomatoes, broccoli and onions.

Pizza Dough (Makes 2 Pizza’s)
1 1/2 cups warm water
1 packet of active dry yeast
3 1/2 cups flour
2 Tbsp olive oil
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon sugar

1) In a mixer bowl add water and yeast. Let it sit for five minutes. Stir to dissolve.
2) Add in oil, salt, sugar, flour.
3) Knead with the dough hook attachment for about 10 minutes or until the dough is smooth and elastic.
4) Lightly coat a glass bowl with oil and form dough into a ball. Place the dough in bowl and cover tightly with plastic wrap. Place in a warm place and allow to rise for 1-2 hours. It should double in size.

How to Grill Pizza

1) Preheat the grill. (I have an electric grill and there is no temperature control. If you can adjust the temperature, use high heat)
2) Prepare your toppings and have them ready to go.
3) Divide the dough into two equal pieces and roll each piece out to about 1/2 inch in thickness. Brush the tops of dough with olive oil and place each one on a lightly floured surface to transfer to the grill.
4) Carefully slide one of the dough rounds onto the grates.
5) Close the grill lid and cook for 2 minutes or until the bottom is starting to brown and the top is forming air pockets.
6) Remove from the grill and add desired pizza toppings to the cooked side of the dough.
7) Slide the pizza back onto the grill and continue cooking for 2-3 minutes or until the bottom is browned and the cheese is melted.
8) Allow to rest a few minutes before slicing.Rustic Grilled Pizza
