i've seen others do this too. i've been doing it for a little while and wanted to show a friend of mine from work. i hope nobody minds all the pictures. its in the grilling section so it rarely gets a look...anyway here is how i do it.

the sauce is whole tomatoes, FRESH basil, fresh garlic, olive oil, oregano, k salt, cracked black

the basil and garlic is divided, half goes in the sauce and half goes in the cheese mixture

after sauteing half of the garlic in olive oil, i cut off the tops of the tomatoes, crush them, and into the pot. add the basil, some oregano, k salt, and pepper. sauce is done



now onto the dough...wifey made the dough earlier in the day. one dough recipe makes 4 pizzas. nothing fancy, just your basic pizza dough recipe, flour, yeast, salt, oil, water...mixer...rest...mixer...rise. take dough out, work a few times and reform ball

then quarter.

begin to work into circle, but just get it started and let it sit for a minute or two

when ready, roll it out almost as thin as you can make it. i like to have it a little over an 1/8" and then i give it a light layer of olive oil

next is the sauce

then the cheese. the cheese is a mixture of mozzarella, parmesan, and romano cheeses. i use shredded and bagged mozzarella, but i shred the parm and romano from a block. there is the basil and garlic from earlier, as well as some oregano and crushed red pepper

onto the grill next. i've preheated the grill and stone to 500+. any higher than 550, and the crust burns before the pie is done

pizza goes on and in 6-8 minutes, its all done



i hope you liked my friday night project. -bobo

Great Friday project! Thanks for the pics.
When I first glanced thru, I thought the stone was a pizza, was wondering what kind of cheese was black..... Embarassed Oh, I see, it's a stone...duh.
Anyway, I love pizza on the grill, particularly in the summer when we want to keep the heat outside and the A/C inside.

Good job!
Weldon

zilla, i have done pizzas on my weber kettle with limited success. i haven't got the heat right yet. do you put the lump directly under the stone? or is the stone heated indirectly by the lump? or are you not using a stone at all?...thanks. bobo

You are so right about the high temp and short cooking time bobo. In Australia most grillers come with a solid plate as well as a grill plate. This makes it a lot easier to cook pizza. I just centre my stainless steel solid plate in the grill , pre heat and then pop the pizza in. It works a bit like a commercial pizza oven.

My family likes thick crusts and that's what they get!

Great looking pizza, makes me hungry just looking at it. I do mine a bit different, after my wife rolls out the dough I rub one side with evoo and slide it right on the grill grates at a medium heat. Once that side has lightly browned I flip it over, lightly coat that side with evoo and then add my ingredients and continue to cook at medium heat until the bottom is nicely browned and the topping are coocked. HHHMMMM, might just have to make some this weekend Smile

Pizza is one of my passions. Go to pizzamaking.com forum for a lot of pizza grilling information including using BGE. Br careful though, pizza making is like barbecue, it is addicting.

I'm with The-Cook-Shack on this one, exactly how we do ours. Gives the dough a great taste.

Wow! I'd never thought of cooking pizza on the grill before now. Your photos are making me hungry though. I am going to have to give this one a try eventually. Thanks for sharing!
