Grilled Pizza Recipe
We love homemade pizza at our house. We try to make it once a week. But in the summer we make is a little less often because when it is hot outside, the thought of turning on the oven is not very appealing. We recently got a new barbequer and it came with a pizza stone insert. Up until this point I had never thought to grill pizza. It is genius really. We still get our homemade pizza and we don’t have to turn on the oven! If you have a grill and a pizza stone already, you are already halfway to having yummy grilled pizza.
Dough for Grilled Pizza
I usually double the recipe. It makes 3 medium or 2 large pizzas. After I have it all spread out, I add my favorite sauce. I actually use Hunts canned spaghetti sauce.
Grilled Pizza Ingredients
Then I added some shredded mozzarella. I add chopped red pepper, chopped basil leaves, diced marinated artichoke hearts, and feta cheese. The Neapolitan brand artichokes are my favorite.
To help the basil not get bured and crispy, I add more mozzarella cheese to the top. Plus, who doesn’t love extra cheese?
This is where my husband takes over. The grill is his baby 🙂 He pops the stones in the grill and lets it do all the work. Don’t let the grill get hotter than 400 degrees and check it often. It will cook faster than your oven.
It was the best pizza I think we have ever made at home! It was cooked to perfection. And better yet, our house stayed nice and cool.
Have you ever tried grilling pizza? What are some of your other favorite things to grill?
When I am not cooking for my 5 hungry guys, I am usually found DIYing something. Here are a few of my most recent projects.
I revamped my tiny dining room.
And I am working on putting the finishing touches on our new basement bathroom. Here are the shelves I built.
