Not your typical BBQ – Grilled Italian Pizza!
Grilled Pizza is so easy to make. You don’t need a fancy oven or even stones to make a delicious grilled Italian pizza. Pillsbury® refrigerated classic pizza crust, some simple ingredients and a BBQ is all it takes. And, believe me, I don’t always make it myself. Don’t be afraid of good pizza in your own neighborhood. Many of them make similar recipes to this if you just ask!
Anyway, here’s how I make this one . . .
Crispy Italian Grilled Pizza
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Start to Finish: 25 minutes
- 1 (13.8-oz.) can Pillsbury® refrigerated classic pizza crust
- Cooking Spray
- 2 teaspoons olive oil
- Canola oil or grill spray
- 1/4 teaspoon of garlic powder
- 2 cups marinara sauce (This limks to my homemade recipe but you can use jarred too)
- 1/2 cup fresh chopped basil
- 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
- 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
Cut an 18×12 inch sheet of heavy-duty foil; spray with nonstick cooking spray. Unroll dough; place on sprayed foil. Starting at center, press out dough with hands to form 13×9-inch rectangle. Brush dough with 1 teaspoon of the oil.
When ready to grill, invert dough onto grill rack and peel off foil. Cook on grill over medium-low heat for 3 to 5 minutes or until bottom of dough is golden brown.
Turn dough; grill 1 to 2 minutes or until bottom is set but not brown.
Carefully remove from grill. Top crust with remaining olive oil, pizza sauce, basil, and cheeses.
Place pizza back on grill away from direct flame (or turn grill off) and close grill. Cook for 3-5 minutes or until cheese is melted.
Cooking time may vary due to grill temperatures so be sure to carefully watch the dough as it cooks to make sure it isn’t burning.
Don’t cook the second side for more than a minute or two because it will cook completely after you top it with the cheese and the sauce and put it back on the grill.
Allow cooked pizza to cool for a few minutes before slicing so that cheese will set and not run off of dough when eaten.
