Grilled Pizza Recipe

I found this recipe on GLU - I've been wanting to try pizza on the grill - This last weekend of my vacation might be a great time to try it!

Pizza on the Grill

OK, we made this technique today, only we did my version.

Pizza Dough: Refrigerated brand - cut it into 2 pieces before rolling with a rolling pin. We used the full amount and it was too much to grill at one time.

Set one side of grill of medium heat instead of high - make sure you use Pam cooking spray on the grill so it doesn't stick. We used Olive Oil - Pam. Before you turn the pizza over spray the uncooked side with Pam. Turn the heat to low - be really fast putting on the sauce toppings and cheese. Close the lid - keep checking the bottom to make sure it's not burning!

Eat and Enjoy!



Pizza Dough

Combine:
1 cup warm water
1 tbls. Sugar
1 pkg. active dry yeast (2 ¼ tsp.)

Mix:

3 ¼ cups purpose flour
1 tbsp. salt
Add: 2 tbsp. olive oil

Combine water, sugar, and yeast. Proof until foamy, about 5 minutes. Mix flour and salt in bowl.Add oil to yeast mixture once it has proofed, then pour into flour mixture. Knead on low speed or by hand for about 10 minutes. Place dough in a lightly oiled bowl, turning to coat. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 2 hours. Punch dough down and divide into 4 balls. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise in a warm place for about 1 hour.

Your grill should be set on high on one half and low on the other.

Roll out dough on a dry work surface, dusted with flour. Shape it into a 10-12 inch circle to rectangle. Do not worry if it is perfect. Wipe oil on grill, drape the dough on the hottest part of the grill using your fingertips to lift the edges. Use tongs to move the crust around if the grill has hot spots. The dough will puff and develop grill marks. Flip the pizza and move it to the cool side of the grill. Brush with olive oil and add toppings of your choice. Slide pizza back to the hot side of the grill, close and cook until cheese is melted.
