Ingredients

  • 1 cup hot water
  • 1 Tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 Tablespoon shortening
  • 1 Tablespoon yeast
  • 2 cups flour
  • ½ cup olive oil or avocado oil
  • 2 Tablespoons garlic
  • toppings

Instructions

  • Combine 1.5 cups of flour and remaining ingredients, putting yeast in LAST. Mix dry ingredients, pour in hot water until well blended and sticky. Slowly adding flour until dough forms a ball and pulls away from the side of the mixer. (about ½ cup more -1 cup)
  • Divide dough into 4-6 equal balls
  • Four a surface and roll out dough till very very thin.
  • Preheat grill to med-high. Oil the grates and gently lay the dough on the grates. Grill for about 2 minutes each side. The dough will come off easily when cooked but will stick when its still dough. Flip when one side is cooked and cook the other side for 2 minutes.
  • Remove from grill when cooked place on baking sheet. Add toppings and bake or broil until the cheese is melted.

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? 

Any of your favorites! When i am using a gourmet combo I like to keep it simple with just olive oil and garlic. BUT this is your pizza you can go crazy how YOU want. 
  • olive oil and garlic 
  • marinara
  • pesto
  • alfredo sauce

WHAT ARE GOOD TOPPINGS FOR GRILLED PIZZA?
