Recipe: Grilled Margherita Pizza

When I discovered via Pinterest that pizza could be grilled, I had to try! I pretty much love any type of pizza, but particularly love the wood-oven or brick-oven fired pizza, and I figured this could turn out similar. It is so fun, and so easy! The perfect summer or early fall dinner.

I studied a couple of tutorials on this and found this visual step by step guide to be super helpful. I'll try to walk you through my process!


Pizza dough (I used Trader Joe's - found in the refrigerated section - let sit for a bit at room temp)
Tomato/Pizza Sauce (also used Trader Joe's- so good!)
Fresh Mozzarella cheese, sliced
Fresh basil
Olive oil

1. Preheat the grill by turning the burners on medium/low
2. Roll out the dough with flour into desired thickness
3. Place all topping ingredients on a plate/cookie sheet, ready to bring outside
4. Brush olive oil on one side of the dough
5. Place dough directly on the grill, oiled side down
6. Let dough grill for about 5-10 minutes, watch closely- top will bubble and underside will get crispy
7. When ready, brush a little more olive oil on the top and then carefully flip over with tongs
8. Top with the sauce and cheese
9. Let finish grilling and until cheese is melted, top with basil
10. Remove carefully with tongs, slice and enjoy!
