Grilling is one of summer's true pleasures, however truth be told, there are only so many burgers one can eat. Enter Grilled Pizza!
It's much easier than you might think, even if you've never made pizza in an oven, grilling it is easy. The dough won’t fall down between the grill grates, plus if you’re using hardwood charcoal the lovely smokiness mimics the flavors imparted by a wood-fired oven. For excellent pizza you want hot cooking temperatures, in the 500°F range, and while nobody wants to crank their oven that high in the summer, grills definitely get that hot.
Pizza is a great appetizer for outdoor summer parties, too! You can mix flavorings like chopped rosemary, olives, sun dried tomatoes, etc. into the basic dough recipe and make tasty grilled focaccias.
