  A new summer favorite
I have heard a lot about grilled pizza. And so I decided it was time to give it a whirl. I started by making dough. You may notice in the recipe that it says 3 Tablespoons of yeast, that was mistyped, I used 2 packets so if you use the jar, do an equivalent, about 3 teaspoons I think. I don't know why I was so afraid of making pizza dough from scratch. It really is so easy and tastes so good. Well, I made 2 pizzas, one for me and one for Funkbobito. I went with olive oil, fresh mozzarella, tomatoes and basil, your typical margherita. Funkbobito had pepperoni.
We rolled out the dough, preheated the grill to medium, oiled up the grates and threw on the crusts. After about 5 or 7 minutes (we have gas, so easier to control the heat here), we pulled off the crusts, flipped them over and put all our toppings on. We dropped the heat on the grill to medium-low and put the pizzas back on. This time we closed the lid and checked every couple of minutes until the bottom was nicely golden. It only took about 5 minutes tops. The results were great. Sorry there were not pictures of the pies whole, we just couldn't wait to cut into them and give em a try. If you have a grill, this is definely a must try meal.
Yay!! My misprint is your treasure - glad this turned out to be good. Hopefully the cooking "itch" will hit you agian!
Most commercial pizza ovens are sort of like giant grills, so that makes sense. Never really thought about it before! I'll have to try it out now.
Looks delicious!
