Grilled Pizza

In celebration of my beloved, Sean's, 37th birthday we celebrated with pizza. I seriously had doubts about putting raw dough on the grill, but it worked well and exceeded our expectations. Not only is this the easiest pizza ever, but there is no clean up. Got to love that!

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Serves: 9
Cost: Approx. $2.25

3 1/2 cups flour ($.25)
1 envelope Yeast or 2 tsp bulk yeast
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoons salt
1 1/3 cups very warm water
1/3 cup olive
Italian Spice Seasoning
Tomato sauce ($.50)
Mushrooms (0ther toppings as desired) ($1.00)
Shredded mozzarella cheese ($1.50)

Combine all dry ingredients setting aside 1/2 cup of flour. Add 2 Tbsp. of olive oil to warm water. Pour into dry ingredients and mix well. Knead dough adding in 1/2 cup of flour until no longer sticky. Separate into 9 pieces and roll flat.

Brush olive oil on both sides of dough and place directly on the grill. Allow to cook 3-4 minutes or until crust is easily turned. Add sauce, seasoning and toppings. Cook and additional 10 minutes or until cheese begins to bubble.

Thanks for sharing this one Monica! Joel was excited to try it on the grill. We made it into two pizzas instead of nine :-). And it turned out really well despite the fact we ran out of propane and had to put it in the oven it's last few minutes. I loved how quick it was to make! ...I think next time I'll add a little garlic.
