Last year we made our first grilled pizza and really loved it. It is a great summer alternative to heating up the oven.
Still, we had a feeling we could improve on our first few attempts.
Enter the cast iron skillet.
Drizzle with a little olive oil and press in the pizza dough.
Put the crust without toppings on the grill on medium heat for 3-5 minutes.
Remove and add toppings.
Return to the grill until cheese is melted and crust is golden.
This method is so much easier and the results so much more attractive than our previous attempts. We made a few thin crust pizzas and then a Chicago deep dish style just by varying the amount of dough and length of crust grilling time. We didn't have any blackened edges that occur so easily when the dough is placed directly on the grill.
