Pizza on an outdoor grill is a great alternative to oven-cooked pizza. If you love crispy crust, this is for you. Note: cook time is relatively short, so alternative toppings like uncooked sausage or other meats may not cook fully.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 (16 ounce) package pizza dough, at room temperature
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 4 ounces shredded Asiago cheese
  • 3 large tomatoes, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup packed whole basil leaves
  • 8 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat, and lightly oil the grate.
  2. 2 Place pizza dough in a bowl to rise 2 to 3 times the original size, about 1 hour. Flour a work surface and a rolling pin. Divide dough in half; roll each half to a 10- to 12-inch diameter circle.
  3. 3 Place pizza dough rounds on the preheated grill using a wooden paddle (pizza peel) and close lid; cook until grill marks appear on the bottom of each round, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from grill and flip over on a work surface. Lower grill heat to medium.
  4. 4 Brush each round with olive oil. Spread half the Asiago cheese on each crust; add tomatoes, basil, and mozzarella. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. 5 Transfer pizzas to grill with wooden paddle and close lid. Cook until bottom of rounds is cooked with grill marks and cheese is melted, 7 to 10 minutes. Remove from grill and let stand for 5 minutes before serving.
