Grilled Pizza

This is soooo good!  I don't think I've ever had pizza made on the grill before, and now I'm sure I'll do it all the time!  We just used traditional ingredients this time (pepperoni, sausage, olives, regular pizza sauce, mozzarella cheese), but next time I'd like to try a pesto chicken or a buffalo chicken.  Yummy!  Thanks for the idea Sisters Cafe!

Make a batch of your favorite pizza dough, or use this one from Sisters Cafe.

White Pizza Dough

1 c warm water, divided
1 tsp sugar
1/4 oz package active dry yeast (or 2 1/4 tsp.)
3 Tbsp oil (olive oil or vegetable)
2 ½-3 c flour
1 tsp salt

Put warm water in bowl. Stir in sugar and yeast and let proof for 1o minutes. Stir in rest
of ingredients. Mix until a ball, knead 10 minutes. Put additional oil in bowl and let rise in oil bowl for 1 ½ hours.

Once the dough has raised, lightly flour two cooking sheets. On a floured surface roll out dough into a circle about 1/8 inch thick (I made two pizzas with this recipe). Place on cooking sheet. Place one pizza on a clean, oiled and preheated grill. Grill pizza crusts for about 1 minute on until the bottom is brown. With tongs, gently flip it over and grill for an additional 30 seconds. Remove from grill and repeat with remaining pizzas. Let cool. Top with your favorite pizza toppings and return to a preheated grill for about 2-3 minutes. Watch carefully to avoid burning. It's best to grill one pizza at a time.

Be creative and use a variety of sauces, cheeses and toppings!
