I have been seeing grilled pizza recipes quite frequently, but since my Husband much prefers a charcoal grill it was hard to convince him to get out the gas grill. I finally convinced him and the results were very delicious! The fresh flavor combination of tomato, basil, and mozzerella is undeniable. Grilling the dough made it extra crisp, which Joe really enjoys.
1 recipe of your favorite pizza dough
2 pints grape tomatoes
1/4 cup fresh basil, chopped
2 gloves garlic
1/4 cup olive oil, plus more for drizzling
2 cups mozzerella cheese, shredded
salt & pepper to taste
1. Roll out your pizza dough on a floured surface to your desired shape. I rolled mine out into a rectangle in order to fit on the grill better.
2. Heat oil over low heat, grate garlic into the oil being careful not to burn garlic. Once garlic flavor is infused into oil, transfer to a separate dish and set aside
3. In a medium skillet add grape tomatoes and drizzle with olive oil. Heat until tomatoes burst. Once tomatoes are burst use a potato masher to mash tomatoes into a sauce. Stirl in basil and add salt and pepper to taste.
4. Brush reserved oil on one side of pizza dough. Place dough – oil side d)own – on a hot grill. Grill for 3-4 minutes. Transfer to a baking sheet, brush olive oil on opposite side and place oil side down. Layer ingredients on the grilled size of the dough (tomato & basil mixture & cheese). Place on grill until cheese is melted approximately another 3-4 minutes.
