  • Pepperoni
  • Italian Sausage

  • Prepare the pizza sauce and slice or chop all toppings, set aside.
  • Roll out pizza dough into a thin rectangle using a small dusting of flour so the dough doesn’t stick. (Rectangular Shape makes it a little easier to handle.) Place pizza dough on large baking sheet or pizza paddle.
  • Heat grill to medium-high heat. Coat grates of grill with vegetable oil using a folded paper towel.
  • Slide pizza dough onto heated grates. Cook for 2-3 minutes or until bottom is lightly brown. Flip pizza over and brush lightly with olive oil.
  • Spread on pizza sauce and top with mozzarella cheese and toppings of your choice. Close the lid and grill for 2-3 minutes or until cheese is melted and toppings are lightly browned.
  • Remove from grill and transfer to cutting board. Add fresh herbs and parmesan cheese, if desired. Serve immediately
