Grilled Margherita Pizza

Internet Address:
  • 1 Pizza Dough
  • 4 Roma or On The Vine tomatoes, sliced
  • 2/3 cup regular mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 1/3 cup smoked mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • Your favorite marinara or pizza sauce
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil (use oil of good quality)
  • Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, grated to taste (for topping)
  • Fresh basil, chiffonade (for topping)
  • Sliced scallions (for topping)
  1. Preheat grill to medium heat. 
  2. Place dough on grill rack, close lid. Dough will take 5-7 minutes. Check it occasionally for bubbles.
  3. Once the bottom is golden brown (or at least not burned...ours don't always get golden brown I guess), flip the crust over. This can be tricky and may require two spatulas, depending on the size of your crust. 
  4. Turn heat down to low or move pizza(s) to top rack if your grill has one. Spread a thin layer of marinara sauce on the cooked side of the crust with a spatula. 
  5. Then, place the toppings on top of the sauce(tomatoes and both mozzarella cheeses). Close lid. Check after five minutes, cook until cheese is melted. 
  6. Garnish with Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, fresh basil (or scallions), and drops of extra virgin olive oil. Serve and enjoy!
