We all know those summer days when it's too hot to even move. So why turn on the oven when you can cook up a perfect pizza on the grill? This grilled pizza recipe is so easy and delicious that I make some variation of it every week. You can switch it up with different sauce and topping combinations–and you can even make it vegan by using vegan cheese. Here's how to make it:
