Two Peas and Their Pod: Grilled Pizza

Grilled Pizza

We are still loving life on the beach. Our resort is really nice. Our room has a full kitchen, living area, bedroom with a king bed and jacuzzi tub! There are also four pools, hot tubs, a great fitness center, and great access to the ocean. We are having fun with Josh's brother, Ben, and his wife, Whitney. We don't leave until Thursday! It's nice not having a schedule. I think I could get used to this beach bum thing, ha!

Florida is very hot and humid though. I grew up in Illinois, but I have been living in Utah for nine years. I forgot what the humidity is like. Let's just say I haven't missed it. It is pretty brutal! At least we can cool off in the pool or ocean!

I haven't done any cooking or baking. I am on vacation:) We have made sandwiches, cut watermelon, poured bowls of cereal, and Josh grilled out last night, but that is it. I thought I would share with you the grilled pizza we made before we left.

We used the pizza dough recipe from Artisan Bread in Five Minutes A Day. Instead of cooking it in the oven, we grilled it! It was very tasty. I loved the grill marks on the bottom of the pizza, it had great flavor. Of course, we loaded our pizza with tons of veggies, but you can use whatever toppings you like.

If you haven't grilled a pizza before, I hope you will this summer. It is so easy and fun! The flavor is great and there is no clean up! Why heat up the house when you can make an amazing pizza outside?

Grilled Pizza

(Printable Recipe)

Pizza dough-we used ABin5 dough for our crust, buy the book for the recipe:)




1. Roll out your pizza dough. Homemade is best, but you can use store bought. We love our ABin5 dough or our
whole wheat pizza crust.
2. Prepare your pizza with sauce, toppings, and cheese.

3. We preheated our pizza stone on our grill. I don't think you need the stone though, you can oil the grill and place the dough right on the grill. I will try that next time. It was really good on the stone though. Either way will work. If you do use a stone, make sure it is really hot.

4. Grill pizza until crust is done and cheese has melted. If you are using a stone, take the pizza off about 5 minutes before it is done and place it directly on the grill. This will give it the great grill flavor and grill marks.

5. Enjoy!!

How fun- I love grilling pizza! It gets such a great crisp to it. Glad you're enjoying the beach! The heat has been a little crazy the past few days..but I love it! I'm sure its even hotter in FL than it is in SC. I think they said mid 90's today.

I bought the book on your recommendation and have loved it. I have made the bread and pizza and was just wondering if you could grill it since its too hot to turn on the oven now. I was not sure if the grill would crack my stone. Thanks for your blog, I enjoy it!

I love grill marks on my pizza, but the thing is, I don't own a grill. I think I should at the least get a grill pan that works on the stove top, just for the pleasure or seeing grill marks :)

I love grilling pizza. I normally do not use a stone on the grill but throw the dough directly on for a couple minutes a side and then add my toppings.

The best part of grilled pizza is everyone can do their own thing.

Happy to hear you trip is going awesome!

I must try this someday. Impressed you blogged on vacation. We had a full kitchen in Hawaii too, and since I don't cook much at home (just baking lol) and we don't have a gril, I cooked every night and loved it. Should have tried this!

Looks good! We make pizza pretty much every week, but we don't grill much. I love ABin5, but not for pizza. I tried it once, but still prefer my usual recipe. It's sort of a combination of Cooks Illustrated's and Peter Reinhart's recipes.
