Dough Twice Tonight....Homemade Pizza on the Grill

The finished product.....Pretty delicious if I do say so myself....though I had to pick the pepperoni off my pieces
 Not so long ago, I went to Africa (and it was amazing and I want to go back--just saying).  On our way, we spent the night in New Jersey where I learned just how good grilled pizza can be.  It was the first time I'd ever had it and it's really good.  Crispy crust on the bottom, yet still a little chewy....perfect texture in my book....and for those of you who know me, texture is a big deal.

I tried pizza on the grill a few weeks ago and it was really good--however, I bought the dough from the pizza place by my house and they charged almost as much as a whole pizza would cost for the dough alone.  (And for the extra couple dollars, I should probably just have them make my pizza.)  So I have been keeping my eye out for pizza dough recipes.  And then my cousin happens to post about his homemade pizza so I borrowed his recipe tonight.  (I'll share it if he says it's okay -- but it's pretty standard: flour, salt, yeast, water, sugar, olive oil)

After I finished my apple dumplings, I started on the pizza dough.  It was pretty easy (my hands got a good workout from kneading the dough) and turned out great.

Transfer the pizza onto the pizza stone that had been heating on the grill

After a few minutes on the pizza stone, pull it off and put it on the grate and cook for a few more minutes until it's finished to your liking


  1. Looks amazing! Can't wait to try it! I definitely need your dough recipe though...Tamra

  2. Glad to hear you enjoyed it!
