On hot summery days, grilled pizza is an absolute delight without having to use massive oven heat. It elevates the day and turns it into an occasion.


Grilled Pizza Ingredients

  • 1 batch of commercial or home-made pizza dough
  • 2 cups -Pizza sauce
  • 1 packet-Mozzarella or goat cheese
  • Your favourite toppings
  • Seasoning


  • You can’t grill for long so having light toppings is recommended or they’ll remain uncooked.
  • Better go for toppings like- jalapenos, olives, roasted bell peppers or tomatoes and soft cheese.

  • Unlike the baked pizza, it is grilled twice, firstly we softly firm the dough by grilling which requires merely a few minutes and then next, grilling the pizza along with the toppings.
  • If you want a more nutritious pizza make the wheat dough and make a homemade pizza sauce instead of preservative ones.

  • Create or buy ready-made pizza dough and side by side gather all the required toppings to go on pizza, whatever you feel is viable.
  • Preheat the grill at around 400-500 F, after that grease the grill grates with oil and brush the pizza with it.

  • Flip the dough onto the prepared grill, so the oiled side is facing the grate, heat it for 3 minutes until it is cooked through gently.
  • After the lightly cooked dough, place it on a plain surface and cover it with toppings- spreading pizza sauce, pouring cheese and all the veggies of your choice.
  • Now flip the pizza back to grill, cover and cook it for 3-4 minutes for the cheese to melt, after it’s done place it on the levelled surface for cutting.
  • Sprinkle the seasonings and basil leaves and your pizza is ready to go. Bon Appetit!
