These cooler evenings are a reminder that summer is almost behind us. After an entire season of firing up the grill for hotdogs and hamburgers, you are probably ready for something new, but not quite ready to heat up your home with the oven. So don't give up on your grill just yet – Rossi's to the rescue with Grilled Pizza!
If you haven't had grilled pizza before, you'll be hooked as soon as you taste its amazingly crispy crust! And did we mention that it's a quick and easy way to enjoy pizza for one or for the entire family? We make it even easier by providing our Gourmet Grilled Pizza Singles recipe below.
Here are just a couple tips before you get started:
- Clean your grill grates to prevent the dough from sticking.
- Prepare the grill for medium to high heat.
- Have all of your toppings chopped and ready at hand.
Preheat grill to medium heat (about 350°+).
Prepare Rossi Pasta Pizza dough according to package directions. While the dough is rising, prepare all toppings for quick access. Once the dough is placed on the grill, the cooking process will go quickly.
Once the dough is ready, divide into four (4) equal balls and thoroughly coat with olive oil to prevent sticking on the grill.
Press or roll each ball into a thin oval or circular shape to form an individual pizza. Be sure dough is thin (approximately 1/4 or less); heat from the grill causes the dough to rise further.
Once the dough singles are pressed or rolled and toppings are positioned near the grill, place the singles directly on the grill.
Cover grill and let dough cook for approximately 2-3 minutes. Dough may bubble and expand. Turn dough using a spatula and tongs.
Immediately add toppings on the cooked side and allow pizza to cook another 3-5 minutes or until cheese is melted. If you intend to use large amounts of toppings, you may want to sauté them on the grill prior to pizza assembly. For cheese or pepperoni pizzas, no ingredient precooking is necessary.
Once cheese is melted, quickly remove pizza from grill and serve.
