Oh this is divine!! Grilled pizza is my new favorite. It is super easy, fun and DELICIOUS! You can get really creative too. I think this would make a fun party menu. Your guests could build their own pizzas from bowls of different toppings.

Use your favorite crust recipe or try this one,
Crust Ingredients (from About.com):
4 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cup warm water (about 110 degrees)
2/3 cup whole-wheat flour
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 package active dry yeast
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon sugar
Preparation:
Combine water, oil, yeast and sugar in a small bowl. Let stand 5 minutes or until it bubbles. Mix flours and salt together thoroughly in a food processor or mixer. Add water mixture while blending. Let mix for 2 minutes. Knead briefly on a lightly floured surface. Place in a large oiled bowl and let stand in a warm place for 2-3 hours. It should double in size.
Once the dough has raised, lightly flour two cooking sheets. On a floured surface roll out 1/4 of the dough into a circle about 1/8 inch thick. Place on cooking sheet. Repeat process until you have four rounds. Place one pizza on a clean, oiled and preheated grill. Grill pizza crusts for about 1 minute on until the bottom is brown. With tongs, gently flip it over and grill for an additional 30 seconds. Remove from grill and repeat with remaining pizzas. Let cool. Top with your favorite pizza toppings and return to a preheated grill for about 2-3 minutes. Watch carefully to avoid burning. It’s best to grill one pizza at a time.
Try your favorite toppings. I did one Margarita pizza with fresh tomatoes, garlic and basil with fresh mozzarella and Parmesan. It was great! The other one pictured is fresh garlic and Gouda chicken sausage, zucchini and sweet red pepper with fresh mozzarella and Parmesan.

    Mmmm that Gouda Chick. one looks awesome! :P I first saw a grilled pizza on Grilling with Bobby Flay. Been in love ever since. I can't really think of a better way to do it. I must say that I've gotten hooked on using traditional pesto or a sundried tomato pesto for sauce. Oober delicious.

    Love the blog!

    What a coinky dink! I just made grilled pizzas last Thursday! YUMMMMMM! I didn't take them off the grill to put the toppings on, just had everything right there ready to go and worked fast.

    I hate with the crust on my pizza isn't crispy. Grilling is a great way to keep this from happening. This pizza look wonderful, as does the rest of your blog.

    I'm not sure how I found this site, but so glad I did! We did grilled pizzas and let the kids pick their own toppings. So fun and so good! Thanks for sharing.
