There are a lot of ways to make pizza. You can cook it in the oven, you can cook it on the stovetop, and you can even cook it on the grill. But what is the best way to grill pizza? Keep reading to find out!
- Preheat your grill. You want the temperature to be between 450-500 degrees Fahrenheit. If you have a pizza stone, put it on the grill while it's preheating so it has time to heat up as well. (If you don't have a pizza stone, no worries! Read on for tips on how to make do without one.)
- While your grill is preheating, roll out your dough on a lightly floured surface. If you don't have a rolling pin, you can use a wine bottle or a can of soup. Once your dough is rolled out to about ¼-inch thickness, transfer it to a piece of parchment paper. This will make it easier to transfer the dough to the grill later on.
- Now it's time to add your toppings! Choose whatever toppings you like best—just be sure not to overload your pizza so that the dough won't be able tom support all of the toppings and cheese. Once you've added your toppings, slide the pizza (still on the parchment paper) onto a baking sheet or cutting board so that you can transport it to the grill easily.
- Carefully place the pizza (parchment paper and all) onto the preheated grill. Cover the grill and let the pizza cook for about 8 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and bubbly and the cheese is melted and gooey. Use a spatula to transfer the cooked pizza back to a baking sheet or cutting board, then slide it onto a wire cooling rack so that the bottom of the crust doesn't get soggy from sitting on a solid surface. Slice and serve immediately!
Pizza lovers rejoice—grilled pizza is here! And there's no need for a fancy wood-fired oven, either; all you need is an ordinary backyard grill and some easy-to-follow instructions, and you'll be grilling up delicious pizzas in no time at all. So fire up that grill and get cooking! Your taste buds will thank you later.
