Here’s our technique for making great grilled pizza at home on a gas grill and pizza stone!
I’ve gotten so many requests for this how-to, and I finally took some photos the last time we had a pizza night!
We buy our dough from Whole Foods pre-made. It saves time and is delicious! (You can obviously make it from scratch as well.) Start by covering the cutting board with lots of cornmeal. This keeps the dough from sticking when you’re ready to slide the prepared pizza off the board onto the stone.
- A grill
- A large cutting board or pizza peel
- A pizza stone (ours is a basic circle but they have kinds with handles that would make getting the pizza off easier!)
Preheat Grill and Stone
Heat the grill burners to high with the pizza stone inside. Ideal is up to 500-600 degrees.
Cover board with 75% all purpose flour and 25% cornmeal and push and stretch crust out into a big circle, incorporating some of the flour on the board into the dough which will help keep it from sticking to your hands. Make sure pizza can slide back and forth on the board. If it can’t, add more cornmeal.
Add any toppings you like!
