How To Make pizza on the grill

  • 1
    DOUGH: Measure 1/2 cup warm water in a bowl. Add sugar and yeast and stir to dissolve.
  • 2
    Let stand at least 5 minutes to proof (froth forms on top).
  • 3
    Meanwhile, sift together into a large bowl the white flour, wheat flour, corn meal and salt.
  • 4
    Make a depression in the middle and add 3 tablespoons of the olive oil and 1 cup warm water.
  • 5
    Add yeast mixture.
  • 6
    Mix all ingredients with your hands and gather together and place on floured board.
  • 7
    Knead about 10 minutes, adding more flour if dough is sticky, to form a smooth, elastic mass.
  • 8
    Grease a large bowl with olive oil.
  • 9
    Add dough, turning it to coat top.
  • 10
    Cover and let rise in warm place, draft-free location until doubled in size (45 minutes for fast rising yeast, 1 1/2 hours for regular).
  • 11
    While dough is rising make sauce by melting butter in a saute pan.
  • 12
    Add garlic and saute for one minute.
  • 13
    Add tomatoes and cook 2 minutes, stirring constantly.
  • 14
    Add cream, basil and oregano and bring to a boil, remove from heat.
  • 15
    Divide dough into 6 equal pieces and, on floured surface, roll out to desired shape about 1/2 inch thick.
  • 16
    Coat both sides of shaped crust with olive oil, then place on grill directly over fire until upper surface begins to bubble (about 2 minutes).
  • 17
    Fire must be very hot and grill must be clean (coals should be red with a small flame, like a steak fire; this is important).
  • 18
    Watch crust closely and rotate with spatula if necessary.
  • 19
    Remove crust and turn cooked side up (it should be golden brown).
  • 20
    Brush with olive oil, sauce, cheese and desired toppings.
  • 21
    Sprinkle some olive oil over each pizza.
  • 22
    Return for final cooking (2-4 minutes), rotating for even cooking.
