is just to hot to light up your oven? Well then here's a interesting way you could try. I have never in my life heard of anyone grilling a pizza on the grill! But yes it has been done for years I learn something new everyday. I found this out because my BF decided he would try to cook a pizza on the grill. I asked him if he ever did this before he said, "no." I started laughing thinking it couldn't possibly be done. WEll he went and rolled out the dough put a can of stewed tomatoes and the rest of the toppings on and put it in a 9x13 inch pan) and put it on out gas grill! Then I did a little searching online and I was amazed at all the recipes I found and different techniques also. Mesquite grilling charcoal grilling and more. (If I had done the searching before cooking I would not have used a pan.) He didn't grease the pan and it all stuck to the bottom. Do you think this method would of worked with a greased pan? Anyway here is a link I found for a simple way to grill a pizza! This is how I will try it the next time we grill a pizza LOL! Has anyone ever heard of this technique before? Have I been in the boondocks too long? http://www.recipezaar.com/121506

I have tried grilling before, for pizzas & similar foods, but the chances are I will burn it. I think my griller is too close to the heating elements. I don't think a pan would fit under my grill either. It's a good method to save electricity.

If you read the process from the link it enclosed you have to do the crust on one side then flip it THEN add the toppings so if you do it right it will not burn. We used a pan but didn't know how to do it right. From the link I posted no one used a pan. And You have to lightly oil the crust. Thanks for responding!

That sounds really good. Thanks for giving me a great idea the next time we want to eat pizza at home. My husband is always wanting to eat pizza and I get so sick of the same food. I will definitely have to try to cook some pizza on the grill the next time. that does sound delicious to me. I bet your pizza wouldn't have stuck if you had greased the pan. I don't think you have been in the boonies too long, laugh out loud. You have made a wise choice for fixing pizza. I bet it would taste really good. We are going to have to try that out.

It's 107 today. So, we grill alot in weather like this. I think I will give the pizza a try on the grill. Sounds great. You do not need to grease the pan,you need to put corn flour on the bottom, so the dough won't stick. Thanks for the nice discussion sugar.

That is too cool. My husband and I love to eat pizza but like you said it is just to hot to cook it in the house during the summer. And we love to grill so it will be the best of both worlds. Thanks for sharing the link I am going to book mark it so I can go back to it often thanks again.

we always joke about making pizza on the grill since our oven stopped working. I have a toaster oven but it is not big enough for a pizza. I didn't realize that it was possible to make it on the grill. Of course, now we got to try it. Thanks for the link.

I have heard of pizza on the grill. I would like to try it one of these nights. I think I would probably go with ready made dough and put the pizza on the top rack. I would fear it would burn otherwise.
