Easy Weeknight Grilled Flatbread Pizza

Easy Weeknight Grilled Flatbread Pizza

My daughter and I love to get in the kitchen and cook together. One of our favorite things to make is grilled pizza, but rolling out the dough is time consuming and all that flour makes a huge mess of my kitchen.

 I love to cook and I feel good about making homemade meals for my family, but the last thing I want to do after a long day at work is sweep flour off my floor and scrape dough off my countertops.

I was so excited when Krusteaz sent me samples of their new Flatbread Mix as part of our promotional campaign because I’m always looking for products that  help make busy nights a little less stressful! 

In less than 15 minutes I have fresh dough ready to go on the grill and no more flour all over my countertops and floors! Scroll to the bottom on my post to see how you can win some flatbread mix. 

I used the Italian Herb flatbread mix for a savory grilled pizza featuring the flavors of summer, but you can easily adapt this recipe to use any of your family’s favorite pizza toppings. The Whole Wheat mix made the perfect crust for a healthy, dessert pizza the whole family loved.

Grilled Savory Summer Flatbread w/ Corn, Tomatoes and Goat Cheese

Ingredients:
1 package Krusteaz Italian Herb Flatbread Mix
1 cup + 2 Tablespoons very warm water (115 – 125 degrees)
¼ cup vegetable oil
Pizza sauce
2 ears of corn, grilled and kernels cut off the cobs
Tomatoes, sliced or halved
Goat cheese
Fresh basil

Instructions: 

  1. Preheat grill for direct cooking over medium heat (350 to 450 degrees).
  2. Stir together flatbread mix and yeast (enclosed). Add warm water and oil, stirring until dough forms a ball. To activate yeast, cover dough and let rest 10 minutes.
  3. Shape dough by dividing into equal portions according to desired yield. With floured hands, pat out dough 1/8 to ¼-inch thick, forming desired shape.
  4. Place dough on hot grill. Once the dough has set and grill marks appear on the bottom of the dough, about 5 minutes, use a spatula to carefully remove dough from the grill. Flip dough and place grilled side up on a cookie sheet or pizza paddle.
  5. Top with a thin layer of pizza sauce, corn, tomatoes and goat cheese. Place pizza back on the grill, close lid and grill for another 3-5 minutes or until the crust has cooked through and the toppings are warm. Remove pizza from the grill, top with fresh basil, slice and serve immediately. 

Grilled Fruit Flatbread w/ Cream Cheese, Plums and Mixed Berries

Ingredients:
1 package Krusteaz Whole Wheat Flatbread Mix
1 cup + 2 Tablespoons very warm water (115 to 125 degrees)
¼ cup vegetable oil
1 8-oz container cream cheese (I used brown sugar-cinnamon flavor but plain will work as well)
3 plums, halved and pitted
Olive oil
Blueberries
Raspberries
Powdered sugar
Honey

Instructions: 

  1. Preheat grill for direct cooking over medium heat (350 to 450 degrees).
  2. Lightly brush cut side of plums with olive oil and place plums on the grill, cut side down, for 6-8 minutes or until golden brown and sear marks have appeared. Remove plums and let cool before cutting into slices.
  3. Stir together flatbread mix and yeast (enclosed). Add warm water and oil, stirring until dough forms a ball. To activate yeast, cover dough and let rest 10 minutes.
  4. Shape dough by dividing into equal portions according to desired yield. With floured hands, pat out dough 1/8 to ¼-inch thick, forming desired shape.
  5. Place dough on hot grill. Once the dough has set and grill marks appear on the bottom of the dough, about 5 minutes, carefully flip over and grill until the dough has cooked through, about another 1-2 minutes.
  6. Using a spatula, carefully remove the dough from the grill and place on a pizza paddle or cookie sheet. Spread the cream cheese in a thick layer across the pizza and top with the fruit. Put the pizza back on the grill, close the lid and grill just to warm the fruit, about 2 minutes. Remove pizza from grill and top with powdered sugar and honey. Slice and serve immediately.

I was having the same issue with making the dough. I even went to 6 different pizza places in town to try to buy their pizza dough and they all said no! The Krusteaz flatbread option sounds fast and easy!

These recipes look incredible, I would love to try them out on my new Summit. I have tried store made pizza crusts but they just don't taste that great.

Growing up near the pizza capital of the world, Old Forge, PA, I've long had a love for great pizza. After buying our first home over a decade ago, the first thing we invested in was a Weber Genesis Silver and One-Touch kettle. Over the years, we've developed a love for grilling and enjoying the outdoors.

Earlier this summer, we purchased the Gourmet BBQ System Pizza Stone, but with little knowledge about making dough, and an active family life we haven't had the chance to make any pizzas on the grill yet.

Combined with your great advice in this blog entry, winning some of the Krusteaz Flatbread would be a great opportunity for us to finally experiment with making pizzas on the grill, and share our creativity with friends and family.

These look fantastic. I would certainly like to try the boxed crust because I cannot believe it could be as good as homemade and would like to give it a whirl on my new summit 670!

We love Krusteaz products in our home... especially their cornbread, crumbcakes and muffins. Excited to try their flatbreads and anytime I can experiment with something new on my Weber thats a huge plus. Picked up my second Genesis today because you can never have too much of a great thing!

Thanks for the review! I had just heard about Krusteaz Flatbread dough kits earlier and this information confirms what I was hoping.

I would like to win because we are a very busy family of 4. These seem like an awesome idea that our family could use to make pizza together. In addition, they will save us time that we use to spend quality family time.
