Grilled Pizza

You can enjoy homemade pizza without heating up the house this summer.

Start with my Pizza Dough that is an adapted version of Betty Crocker's.

2 1/2-3 Cups flour
1/4 Cup Sugar
1 tsp Salt
2 1/4 tsp SAF Instant Yeast(you can find this at WinCo, Macey's, or specialty bread stores)
3 Tbsp Olive Oil
1 Cup very warm Water

In a stand mixer, mix 1 cup flour, the sugar, salt and yeast. Add oil and water, mix until smooth. Add enough remaining flour until dough is soft (not sticky) and leaves sides of bowl. Knead for 5 minutes. Cover loosely and let rest while you prepare your toppings (you can leave the dough in the fridge one night, but no longer).

To Make Your Pizza

Divide dough into 3 equal portions. Roll dough to 1/2 inch thick or a little less. Place on preheated grill. cover and cook until you can see grill marks on the bottom. Flip crust. Thinly spread olive oil, then sauce and toppings. Cover and cook until the cheese is melted.

*For a smoky flavor, soak a plank of cedar or other hardwood in water while preheating your grill. Place the wood on the grill next to the Pizza while cooking.
