Grilled Margherita Pizza
A classic pizza with a summer twist. Grilled Margherita Pizza is taken to the next level by cooking it on the grill.
Who doesn’t love a classic Margherita pizza? I do, and I’m giving this one a summer twist. Grilling this Margherita pizza makes the crust crispy and taste like it came for pizza oven.
When I make pizza, a good dough is a must. No store-bought dough from a can is allowed here. Please either make your own (you can see how easy my recipes is) or ask your local pizzeria to sell you a ball of dough. The grill is a great place to make a pizza, especially in the hot weather because you don’t heat up the house and grill gets nice and hot which makes the dough crispy and flavorful.
Because this grilled Margherita pizza has large pieces of fresh mozzarella that does not cover the sauce, this allows the sauce to shine through.
The pizza comes together as fast as it would from a pizzeria. The fresh dough is added to the grill without toppings, grilled for a couple of minutes before turning and that is when the toppings are added. I’m not a fan of cooking basil on a pizza because it turns black and loses it’s fresh flavor. I prefer it at the end of cooking.
