Total Time: 2 hours 30 minutes including homemade crust!

Prep Time: 2 hours, 15 minutes

Grill Time: 15 minutes



Yield: 2 8-10” personal pizzas

Crust:

1 t. active dry yeast + 1/2 C. warm water + 1 pinch white sugar

1 t. salt

1/2 T. olive oil

1 1/2 C. all purpose flour OR whole wheat flour OR whatever you have on hand

1 clove garlic, minced

1/2 T. basil

1/2 C. olive oil

1 t. garlic minced

1/2 C. tomato sauce

1 t. oregano,1 t. basil, 1 t. garlic powder OR whatever spices you want in pizza sauce

Toppings: Whatever your taste buds prefer!

1/2 C. chopped tomatoes

small can sliced mushrooms

pepperoni

onion, chopped into slivers OR green onion diced

1 C (8 oz) shredded cheese – mozzarella or whatever you have

To make the crust, dissolve yeast in warm water with a pinch of sugar and let sit 5 minutes to proof (foamy). Mix in salt, olive oil, flour, minced garlic and basil. Knead for 5-8 minutes. Dough should be stiff but not too sticky. Form into ball, let rise until doubled – 1/2 hour to 1 hour depending on temperature. Punch down and knead again. Let double again. To make two “personal pizzas”, separate dough into 2 pieces & roll out to about 8” round (or whatever shape fits on your grill – we can do 2 at once).

Turn grill on and heat to about medium to medium high heat. You’ll need to experiment with the heat since every grill is different. Brush the bottom of the crusts lightly with olive oil with garlic mixed in. Put dough on grill and grill for just long enough to get the bottom a bit browned. Then, brush the top with olive oil/garlic mixture. Using two spatulas, flip it over so the browned bottom is now on top. Spread pizza sauce and toppings on top – thinner layers of toppings seem to work best to get the entire pizza cooked before burning the bottom. Close grill lid and bake until the cheese is bubbly. On our grill, the initial crust grilling takes from 2-5 minutes and the pizza grilling takes another 10 minutes. Watch it closely so the bottom crust doesn’t burn! If you have trouble, you may need to place an upside down metal pan on the grill to get the pizza farther from the flames. Enjoy!
