You already know that everything is better cooked on the grill but pizza is especially delectable cooked this way. I absolutely love the smoky flavor that the grill imparts. Not only is it delicious but it also helps you avoid heating your oven (and house) during the summer. Also, it is super easy!

This isn’t really a proper “recipe”…. Rather an idea or technique that I want to share because it rocks.


Your favorite pizza dough (either homemade or store bought)

Delicious toppings of your choice (I used Pulled pork, Pineapple, Red onion, BBQ sauce, White cheddar)

  1. Prepare your favorite pizza dough or use a store bought dough. Shape the dough with your hands on a floured surface or stretch it.
  2. Get your fire prepared and gather the toppings.
  3. Once the grill is hot, dip a paper towel in olive oil and use tongs to wipe the grill grates. Then place a pizza dough round directly on the grate. Close the lid and cook a couple minutes (until the bottom of the dough is done) then flip.
  4. Spoon the sauce onto your pizza and add the other ingredients. Close the lid and cook until the bottom is cooked and the cheese is melted. Once it is done, move it to a plate or some other flat surface.
