How to make Grilled Pizza

Easy Grilled Pizza Instrustions

   If you want to save time you can buy prebaked pizza shells such as Boboli pizza crusts. If you choose to use fresh dough you will need to roll the dough to your desired thickness, and then either grill first on a baking sheet or bake in the oven until the dough consistency is durable enough to handle direct heat on the grill(about 6-8 minutes at 400 degrees). 
   Prepare all of your toppings prior to grilling. I like to have all of the vegetables sliced thinly so they don't require much time to become tender. Slice any meat toppings thinly also unless they are fully cooked. Try using fresh mozzarella as it is much lower in sodium than your average bagged shredded mozzarella. 
    Before you begin grilling your crust,be sure to brush dough with plenty of olive oil before placing directly on to grill (to prevent sticking).  Grill for 4-5 minutes on one side over medium heat (350 to 425 degrees F.) Flip crust over and top with your favorite sauce (white or red) and add toppings. Close cover and cook until cheese is melted and topping are cooked until desired doneness.

Pizza can be grilled over propane or charcoal, I prefer propane(it has a much cleaner taste) but charcoal can provide much more flavor.
