Grilled Margherita Pizza

Today I am sharing with you my quick version of a Margherita pizza I make on the grill.  You can have a gourmet style pizza with just 5 ingredients.  Quick, easy, delicious.  You can use this same technique and top with your favorite topping too.

Grilled Margherita Pizza

  • 1 can of Pillsbury pizza dough
  • olive oil
  • marinara sauce
  • sliced fresh mozzarella
  • 10 fresh basil leaves, chiffonade (stack leaves together and roll like a burrito and dice)
  1. Open your pizza dough and unroll it on a piece of aluminum foil.  Press the dough slightly to get it to flatten out.
  2. Brush the dough with olive oil.  Place the dough oil side down on a grill preheated to high and peel off foil.
  3. Brush other side of dough with olive oil.
  4. Grill for about 2 minutes.  Then, using tongs, turn crust over.
  5. Top dough with marinara, fresh mozzarella, and basil.  Grill until the bottom get golden and the cheese melts.  Use a set of tongs to remove pizza or use one set of tongs and slide onto a baking sheet.
