How NOT to Grill Pizza

How NOT to Grill Pizza

Our last night of vacation, also our last night with access to a grill, I decided to attempt something I’d always wanted to try: Grilled Pizza. I prepped the dough, stretched out into single servings, separated by wax paper and frozen briefly. Followed instructions that said to grill 3 minutes on one side, flip, and grill 3-5 more. Over high heat.

This was a bad idea.

My lovely little pizzas turned to carbon.

I should’ve listened to Kenji. Yup, 45 to 90 seconds a side probably would’ve done it.

Have you grilled pizza? Successfully? I’d love to hear about it.

  1. I've never tried grilling pizza myself, but if I do, I'll heed your warning and avoid Carbonite pie.

  2. Aw, sad! I've messed up plenty of dishes in my time too. I've never tried grilling a pizza, but it's an interesting idea!

  3. We recently tried grilled pizza and, weather permitting, I'm going to do it again this week. The keys seem to be making sure that the dough is stretched really thin and then brushed with a touch of olive oil. You also have to have all of your toppings ready the minute you turn it over. I'm not exactly sure how long I left it on, I checked to see what it looked like. It was mighty tasty. Try again – it's worth it.
