Pizza on the Grill

September 2, 2008 | Appetizers, Pasta & Pizza

My newest culinary inspiration came from my desire to create a kids’ cooking class this summer. I figured pizza on the grill was perfect for a group of boys and girls, ranging in age from 7 to 13. In the words of the youngest boy in the class, “This pizza is great!” It’s been so easy and delicious that I find myself making this once a week. Here’s my recipe – you can of course adapt it for whatever ingredients you like, so I’ve given some ideas at the end.

Total time
 
Recipe type: Appetizer,Pizza
Serves: 10-12
Ingredients
  • 4 pounds pizza dough (you can buy the premade dough from Whole Foods)
  • 1 cup pizza sauce
  • 1 cup pepperoni slices
  • 1 cup italian sausage, browned and drained
  • ½ cup basil leaves, torn
  • 2 cups mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
Instructions
  1. Cut dough into 8 half-pound balls and press each into a 12 inch crust on a cutting board; rub top side with olive oil.
  2. Preheat grill to medium high. Gently lay dough onto grill surface, spreading out dough into desired shape as you lay it down. Cover and let cook for about 3 minutes or until golden brown on the first side. Check every 30 seconds and pierce any bubbled that may form in the crust.
  3. Using tongs, turn crust over and quickly spread toppings onto crust: sauce first, then sausage and pepperoni, finishing with basil leaves and mozzarella cheese. Close grill cover and cook an additional 2 minutes or until crust is cooked through and cheese has melted. Remove to a cutting board and cut with a large chef knife or pizza cutter.
