Here is one of my favorites for a Friday Flashback!

Pizza on the Grill

One of our easiest and  favorite summer dinner is pizza on the grill.


The dough was made in the Cuisinart, but it you don’t make bread dough—no worries. We have used frozen dinner roll dough balls. Thaw the dough, rise, and use two for each pizza.

Pizza Dough

1 pkg active dry yeast

1 teaspoon sugar

1 1/4 cups warm water

3 1/3 cups flour

1 1/2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon olive oil

Dissolve yeast and sugar in warm water. Let stand until foamy, about 3-5 minutes.

Insert dough blade. Place flour and salt into food processor. While machine is running, add liquid. Process until dough forms a ball. Then process for 30 seconds to knead the dough. Dough may be slightly sticky. Oil hands and remove dough from processor and place in an oiled bag or bowl. Evenly coat dough with olive oil. Let rise for about 45 minutes.

Punch dough, divide into 8 equal balls. Form into 8 crusts about 1/4 inch thick.


Pre-heat the grill to medium high. Brush the grill with olive oil. Cook the crust for about 2 minutes —- just until you see light golden grill marks. Flip the crust over and lightly grill —just until the dough is set and crusts have puffed. You can add the toppings while the pizzas are on the grill, but we pre-cook all the crusts ahead of time and place a big stack of crusts next to the toppings.


Pizza Sauce

1 – 16 ounce can tomato sauce

1 6 ounce can tomato paste

2 garlic cloves, pressed

1 teaspoon sugar

1/4 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning

1/8 teaspoon dried crushed red pepper

1 scant Tablespoon dried basil

salt and pepper to taste

Combine all ingredients and cook for about 10 minutes.

We let everyone add their own toppings. This crew chose pepperoni and cheese.


Then we put the pizzas back on the grill (lid down) long enough to make the cheese melt and finish off cooking the crusts. We lower the grill temperature slightly to keep the crusts from browning(burning) before the cheese is melted.
