Introduction: Grillin Pizza

Pizza Contest

Finalist in the
Pizza Contest

Its one of the best tasting ways to make a pizza, and its really easy.

Step 1: Dough and Ingredients

Pizza Dough is easy to make. Lots of recipe's out there, here's mine. 

3 cups flour
1 cup water
1 Tbs oil (Olive or canola)
1 Tbs yeast
1 Tbs sugar
1 tsp salt

Mix all dry ingredients and add wet. Mix well and knead dough for 5 minutes. Form dough into a ball and place in a a lightly oiled bowl, cover and allow to rise in a warm place for 1 hour.

Dough can now be punched down, divided, flattened and shaped to make pizza.....

TIP: Right after mixing, dough can be bagged and refrigerated or frozen for future use.

Get everything ready to go and staged out. Grilling pizza goes pretty fast.

Ingredients:
Sauce (I use store bought in a squeeze bottle....its my favorite)
Cheese
Meat
Various toppings
Corn Meal (very important)

Utensils:
A pizza peel or large cutting board
Spatula
Silicone Brush (or a spoon)
A grill....

Step 2: Here We Go!

Get your grill hot. Around 450 or so.

Step 3: Ready-set-GO!

Sprinkle the cornmeal on your paddle so your dough slides easy and put your dough directly on the grate.

Close the lid and cook it for 2 minutes...no peeking!

Step 4: Pull It!

Step 5: Flip It!

Step 6: Sauce It!

Step 7: Cheese It!

Step 8: Meat It!

Step 9: Do a Little Onion Dance!

If you like a lot of veggies it helps to saute them on high heat in a skillet first for a minute or until they just start to get translucent. Otherwise you may get a watery puddle on top of your pizza....ewww.

Step 10: Back to the Grill Again!

Back on the grill for two more minutes.

Step 11: Done!

Check the bottom...if its golden brown with light char marks and the cheese is all gooey and bubbly its done...if not give it another minute.


Times will vary from grill to grill due to temperature variations.

Step 12: Enjoy!

That's it. Easy, quick and yummylicious!

    Mmmm... never heard of grilling pizza before, but it's a great idea!

    It is really easy. If you like pizza and know how to light a grill you can do it. Go on, be a pizza hero and grill up some pizza for family and friends ;)

    I bet this would taste great!

    Its very tasty. The crust gets that smokey flavor to it. Its also fun to do when company comes by. The grilling process gives that "Wow" factor. You will then be hailed forevermore as the "grill master extraordinaire".

    I really like your main image. I encourage you to look at the Pizza Art I make for Pizza Thursdays here at Instructables HQ. Also, I am totally going to try this in a few weeks when the weather starts being better for grilling.

    Thanks...yeah, I made that for a Christmas Exchange gift at work. Months ago I grilled pizza at work and everyone went bonkers over it. So I whipped that up in photoshop (my nickname at work is Capt'n Tony) put it on one side and did the step by step on the back, laminated it and stuck it on a pizza peel and stuck a spatula and a pizza cutter on it. Was a big hit.

    Love your Pizza Art!
