While I was trying to figure out what to make for dinner tonight, the thought of grilled pizza came to mind. I knew right away that just one pizza would not feed all of us nor would it satisfy what we all like on our pizzas so I decided to make 3:
Grilled Veggie Pizza (for me)
Pepperoni Pizza (for Scott)
Three-Cheese Pizza (for the kids)
Even though these are pictures of my particular pizzas, you could switch them up and make every type of pizza in the world.
Pizza dough kit
1/2 cup hot water
Toppings of your choice
Directions: Preheat to low and CLEAN grill. Mix pizza dough according to the directions. Roll out or shape into a good-sized pizza. Put dough on grill for 6-8 minutes or until you get good grill marks. Turn pizza over, add toppings, and grill for another 6-8 minutes. Cut and serve.
Here’s what you’ll need for Grilled Veggie Pizza (or other veggies)
For the Veggie Pizza I did not use any pizza/marinara sauce but brushed olive oil and garlic on the dough.
Use a garlic press to press out 2 garlic cloves into some olive oil. If you do not have a garlic press, chop up the cloves and then smash them up a bit.
Make the dough according to the package directions. This particular brand just called for 1/2 cup of hot water.
Cover with a lid for a couple of minutes to let it rise a bit. Roll out and shape.
You can do this for all of the pizzas. Brush on the olive oil and garlic.
Put your chosen veggies on the grill.
Put the pizzas on the grill. If you are using olive oil/garlic, put the side you just brushed face-down.
When they have cooked for 6-8 minutes, turn them over and put your toppings on while the bottom side is grilling. (Also, brush on the other side with olive oil/garlic.
Here’s what you’ll end up with:
Grilled Veggie Pizza
Here is a closer look of the pizza crust that I used. There are others available (even a gluten-free one).
Hope you enjoy these as much as we did!
