Who doesn’t love the taste of a crispy thin crust BBQ pizza? This is probably one of the most fun meals to make with a group of people. Despite the chopping prep work, it is actually quite simple to execute over the BBQ. I especially love adding an assortment of toppings. The garden in my backyard has exploded, so I’ve been trying to use up all the tasty and fresh vegetables and herbs as possible. On the left I used my family’s home-made tomato sauce and decided to add fresh mozzarella, cherry tomatoes, sun-dried tomatoes, broccoli, mushrooms and fresh kale and basil from the garden. On the right I used my home-made pesto, mozzarella, mushrooms, kale and fresh sprouts. Both were insanely delicious.
- 1 piece of pizza dough
- ¼ cup of olive oil
- 2 cups of tomato sauce
- any additional ingredients youd like!
- Preheat grill for high heat. Punch down dough, and divide in half. Form each half into an oblong shape ⅜ to ½ inch thick.
- Brush grill grate with olive oil. Carefully place one piece of dough on hot grill. The dough will begin to puff almost immediately. When the bottom crust has lightly browned, turn the dough over using two spatulas. Working quickly, brush oil over crust, and then brush with 2 tablespoons tomato sauce. Arrange whatever ingredients you desire on the pizza and place back on the grill. Close the lid, and cook until the cheese melts. Remove from grill, and set aside to cool for a few minutes while you prepare the second pizza.
