With summer here, you and your family want to enjoy the outdoors as much as possible. So, for your next casual weeknight meal, why not grill pizza on the barbecue?
You can start with your own homemade pizza crust, like my recipe for Whole Wheat Pizza Dough. Or you can use a ready-made pizza crust like Pillsbury Classic Pizza Crust!
Recently my family and I enjoyed making pizza on the grill. Here's how we did it:
First of all, I don't own a barbecue - yeah, I know, it's just never been on our must-purchase list; other things always seem to take precedence. But I do have an indoor grill we received as a wedding present, so I used that. But if you have a barbecue, please use it!
First, take your Pillsbury Classic Pizza Crust or your own dough, and roll it with a floured rolling pin on a floured surface. Spray both your grill and a large piece of aluminum foil with canola oil spray.
Place your pizza dough on the aluminum foil, and place the aluminum foil on the grill.
Check the bottom of the crust as it cooks to make sure it doesn't burn. Turn it over with a spatula once the bottom is nice and brown. (I let mine go just a little bit too long.)
Cook the other side for just a minute or so. It will cook more later. Remove the crust and aluminum foil from the grill. Add your sauce and toppings - I have a tomato sauce hater, so I used alfredo sauce and three kinds of cheese - mozzarella, cheddar, and parmesan.
Turn the grill down to low and put the crust and aluminum foil back on the grill. Cover and cook until the sauce is hot and the cheese is melted. (I covered mine with a stockpot lid.)
And voila, you have yummy grilled pizza made at home!
