Grilled Pizza

I have been wanting to try grilled pizza for months, especially with the warmer weather arriving.  But, I'm no Bobby Flay.  I could only imagine pizza crust running between the grates of the grill and a big doughy mess. When I was browsing AllRecipes I came across this pizza dough recipe and read some of the suggestions, many being about pre-baking.  Then a lightbulb went on!

I made the recipe and partially baked the crust in jelly roll pans (12x17).  The recipe is quite large, and I was able to get two crusts from one batch.  When they cooled I wrapped and froze them.




A few weeks later I thawed one for a test run of grilled pizza, topped as usual, and TA-DA!



The crust was much more crispy than I've been able to achieve in my oven, even with a pizza stone, and ... no steaming hot kitchen!  I'll be making several of these crusts on my next freezer cooking day for the summer months.
