PIZZA ON THE GRILL

If you thought Dominoísģ was good wait until you try this. Not only is this good pizza, itís also very easy because I use mostly store bought ingredients.

Pizza Dough - store bought will do
Pizza Sauce - store bought too
Shredded Mozzarella cheese at room temperature
6 or more Garlic Cloves, Crushed
Any other toppings you like
Olive oil

Pizza and garlic go together so I use a lot. You can also crush some garlic and add it to olive oil to make garlic infused olive oil. Crush the garlic and put it in bottle of good olive oil. In a few days youíve got garlic flavored olive oil. Cool!

You want a low to medium direct heat. Toppings will take longer to heat through than it will take to cook the dough. Start by putting all the toppings in the grill. A pie tin works well for this. Donít start the dough until the toppings are hot. Make sure your grill is clean or the dough will stick. Gather all the ingredients before you put the dough on, this goes quick. With a paper towel lightly oil the pizza dough. I use store bought crust because itís easier. If you prefer to make you own, good for you. Just oil the grill not the dough.

Place the dough on the grill and let the magic begin. As soon as the crust has browned flip it over, add crushed garlic, the pizza sauce, your toppings and the cheese. Close the lid. This side will take about as long as the first. The hardest part of this whole process is getting the cheese to melt before the crust burns. The finer the cheese is shredded the quicker it will melt.

Goat cheese melts faster. So if you want, and your friend wonít freak out, use goat cheese. When the crust is golden brown and your cheese has melted your pizza is done. Take it off the grill and let it cool a couple minutes before slicing.
