Grilled Pizza

  • Pizza crust dough, either homemade or bought ready made
  • Fresh vegetables (olives, peppers, mushrooms, spinach, tomatoes)
  • Olive Oil
  • Garlic
  • Mozzarella Cheese
  • Fresh tomato sauce or spaghetti sauce


Brush grill grate with garlic flavored olive oil. Carefully place one piece of dough on hot grill. The dough will begin to puff almost immediately. When the bottom crust has lightly browned, turn the dough over using two spatulas. Working quickly, brush oil over crust, and then brush with 2 tablespoons of tomato sauce. Arrange 1/2 cup chopped tomatoes, 1/8 cup sliced black olives, and 1/8 cup roasted red peppers over crust. Sprinkle with 1 cup cheese and 2 tablespoons of basil. Close the lid, and cook until the cheese melts. Remove from grill, and set aside to cool for a few minutes while you prepare the second pizza. (You can make a couple of smaller ones or a large one depending on the size of grill.
