Pizza On A BBQ Gas Grill? (Yes, It’s Possible!)



Pizza is a favourite dish for nearly everyone! There’s something about the combination of that slightly crisp, slightly chewy crust, combined with a mountain of fresh toppings and cheeses. But, before you call your local pizza joint for dinner in a box, consider learning how to use your own BBQ gas grill to create a one of a kind pizza that will have your family forget the phone number for your local pizzeria.

Start With A Great Dough

Your dough needs to be a good one, but that doesn’t mean that you need to make it from scratch. Some local pizza restaurants or even supermarkets will sell premade dough that simply needs to rise. While your dough is rising you’re ready to move on to the next step — gathering your toppings.

Gather Your Toppings

The beauty about making your own pizza with your BBQ gas grill is that you can use whatever toppings you want. Consider creating small mini pizzas for everyone in your family and let them choose what goes on their own personal pizza. Have bowls out of pepperoni, chopped onions, peppers, mushrooms and other veggies, crumbled sausage and even exotic toppings like anchovies if you’re feeling adventurous.

Get That Pizza On The BBQ Gas Grill

Once your dough is rolled out, it’s time to use the BBQ gas grill. Brush your uncooked dough with a little bit of olive oil and set it directly on the grill grates. Let the dough cook for two to three minutes before turning it over to cook on the other side. You may see a few bubbles in the dough — if this happens poke them with a fork so the steam escapes and the bubble doesn’t continue to grow.

After the dough is slightly baked, it’s time to add the toppings. When everything is assembled, put the pizza back on the BBQ gas grill (but turn the temperature down just slightly) so that it can fully cook and the cheese melts, about two or three minutes.

Now you’re ready to eat! Enjoy!
