Suprise! You Can Grill A Pizza
Many people are surprised to learn you can cook a pizza on the grill. At Weber, we say anything that can be cooked in your kitchen can also be cooked on your grill. Sometimes you just need the right accessory to make it happen. I like to use the Weber Gourmet Barbecue System’s pizza stone when I grill pizzas.
I buy fresh pizza dough from the grocery store and let it sit out at room temperature about 30 minutes before rolling it out on a well-floured countertop. Don’t worry about rolling the dough into a perfect circle. If it’s misshapen just tell your friends its “rustic” pizza.
Roll the dough to about 1/8-1/4” thickness and poke a few holes in it with a fork. This will help prevent the dough from bubbling up when it hits the hot grill.
Sprinkle a generous amount of corn meal on a pizza paddle and lay the pizza dough on top. Top the pizza with whatever toppings you like – my recent favorites are barbecue sauce, grilled chicken, cheddar and mozzarella cheese and sliced red onions.
Preheat the stone on the grill for about 10-15 minutes.
Then carefully slide the pizza off the paddle and onto the stone. Close the lid of the grill and let the pizza cook for about 10-12 minutes or until the dough is cooked through and the cheese is melted and golden-brown.
