Your grill isn't just for hamburgers and hotdogs, it's for pizza too.

I purchased my dough at our local grocery store, fresh not frozen. I know some people have purchased from there local pizzaria as well, or just make your own.

Love the grilled flavor that gets into the dough. So good you may not get take out again. LOL

I have a friend that has an impressive garden and she gave me a gorgeous bunch of basil. Coupled with vine ripened tomatoes this pizza can't be beat.

Enjoy!
