Grilled Pizza a la Foodie Mommie
- 1 ball of pizza dough, either whole wheat or white, whatever you like. You can use my pizza crust recipe, or your own!
- 1 cup shredded cheese (your favorite kind for pizza. I use mozzarella and parmesan but you can use any kind you like depending on the type of pizza you are making).
- Your favorite toppings - I made one pepperoni and one with mushrooms, red peppers and cut up meatballs- do not use more than one cup if the toppings are heavy.
- 1/2 cup of pizza sauce - I used Trader Joe's brand this time but oftentimes I make my own. Sometimes I do BBQ chicken pizza on the grill and when I do that I use BBQ sauce instead of pizza sauce.
Spray your grill generously with cooking spray so that your crust does not stick. Form your crust into a round about 1/4 inch thick. Place on the grill and grill on one side about 5 minutes or until it lifts easily and flip over and grill the same amount of time on the other side or until you can lift the crust up and it is no longer "flimsy." Using a large spatula (or I use the Pampered Chef Mega Lifter), remove the crust from the grill and top with the sauce, toppings and cheese. Using the large spatula (or Mega Lifter), carefully place the pizza back on the grill and close the lid so that the cheese melts and the toppings heat through. Remove from heat when cheese is melty and bubbly and pizza is heated through. Using the same instruments as before, remove the pizza from the grill, cut with a pizza cutter or sharp knife and eat! YUMMY!
Until next time, happy and HEALTHY cooking and EATING!
