To start, all you have to do is fire up the grill to a medium heat, roll out your dough, and prep your ingredients like you would any other pizza.

Brush a little bit of oil on the grill and toss on the rolled dough (no toppings) onto the grill for 3-4 minutes. Once it’s crisped up, take it off with the grilled side up.

Dress up your pizza the way you like it. Go for the classic pepperoni and cheese or try a new combo like fresh mozzarella, prosciutto, caramelized onions and some roasted veg.

Turn down the heat and toss the dressed pizza back on the grill. Wait for the cheese to melt and the bottom to crisp and BOOM, you’re done. A tasty, authentic, wood-fired pizza in under 15 minutes.
