Recipe Notes

OIL YOUR GRATE! 

This is one step that can not be forgotten. Make sure you generously oil your grate on your grill. I put a little oil on a paper towel right before I place on the pizza. 

DO I COOK THE TOPPINGS ON THE GRILL TOO? 

NO, for the next step you will remove your grilled pizza dough to a baking sheet. From here you will want to add all your toppings and bake. 

WHAT KIND OF SAUCE DO I USE FOR GRILLED PIZZA?

  • marinara
  • pesto
  • alfredo sauce
