This looks like fun :) Nice job
I have been doing it for years even the take and bake pizzas are good gives ti a great taste even on a gas grill just watch your temp. At least try it once you will like it and the house dont get hot in the summer.
Had this for dinner the same day. Great, simple crust that worked perfectly on the grill. Really yummy with fresh seasonal veggies!
I very much endorse the idea of grilling pizza--it is much more authentic--but you left out a crucial element. Put a baking stone on your BBQ grill and bake your pizzas on the stone, NOT the metal grill. The result is a real hearth-baked pizza with the wonderful crisp-on-the-outside, soft-on-the-inside crust that comes from using a baking stone. When using a baking stone, turn up your grill to the highest setting. Authentic hearth-baked pizza is baked at 700 + degrees. You can't get that in a conventional oven! The cooking time should be 5-8 minutes, but at such high temps, most toppings are fully cooked. If in doubt, half-cook your meat toppings before putting on the grill. Another tip: Put some corn meal on your prep surface to make it easier to slide the pizza onto and off of your peel (the large spatula you see in pizza parlors). Finally, this way of cooking doesn't need to be a summer-only activity. It works just as well in cold weather (assuming your grill has a lid). Just remember to heat the stone on the grill (i.e., put the stone on the grill before lighting the grill) and later let it cool completely before removing it. Gioioso grigliate! (Happy grilling!)
Here's another way of doing it. Just for an option.
