Last night, in the cooler, but still sweltering humidity, my husband and I did a first. We grilled pizzas.

I thought it would be a perfect time to share these, since July 4th is right around the corner. They were delicious! Once again, weber grill recipes never disappoint, this pizza tasted like it was straight from a brick oven!

Grilled Pizza
Recipe slightly adapted from Weber Grill IPhone App

Dough recipe:
2 to 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
3/4 cup warm water
1 tsp granulated sugar
1 tsp kosher salt
1 packet dry active yeast
3 tbsp olive oil

Pizza topping ideas:
Tomato sauce
Red pepper flakes
Dried oregano
Shredded mozzarella
Goat cheese
Chopped basil
Canadian bacon
Green bell pepper or roasted red peppers

1. In a large bowl, mix together yeast, sugar, and water. Stir, and allow to sit for 10 minutes until foamy. Add remaining salt, oil, and 2 cups flour. Stir until dough forms. If still slightly wet, add remaining 1/2 cup flour.

2. On a floured surface, knead dough for 5 minutes, or until it becomes smooth. Place in a greased bowl and allow to rise in a warm part of the room for 1 and 1/2 hours, or until doubled in size.

3. After rising, cut dough into 4 equal pieces. On a piece of parchment, press or roll each piece of dough into an 8 inch round.

4. Preheat your grill, either charcoal or gas. Take dough and grill each piece (without the parchment of course) over direct heat for a few minutes, until browned a crispy. Remove crust, placing grilled side up, onto a baking sheet. Cover with desired toppings (take care not to soak the pizzas with tomato sauce, you don’t want them soggy). Place back onto grill, lid on, and allow to cook a few more minutes for the other side of the dough to get brown and crisp, cheese to melt, and toppings to warm though.

5. Remove, slice, serve.
