RUSTIC GRILLED PIZZAWe had a lot of fun with it!
You take pizza dough - what do you mean you don't just have some dough? I bet you want a recipe?
Don't tell anyone but I buy my dough in a frozen dough ball in the bakery section of Sunflower Market.
But homemade pizza dough is easy to make.
Fine. I'll give you the recipe later.
take the pizza dough and divide it into individual portions.
With your hands, form the dough into a round or square or unidentified crust shape -as seen above.
Do NOT manhandle or roll the dough.
The less touching the better.
But stretch it as thin as you can.
I hope your grill is preheated.
I forgot to tell you that part.
Spread some olive oil on one side of your pizza crust - about 1 Tablespoon
Go ahead. Spread it with your fingers.
Place the dough -oiled side down on a GREASED grill.
Cook until crispy on the bottom - a few minutes.
While it's cooking, spread another tablespoon of oil on the top.
Flip the crust over and grill the other side for a few minutes.
Remove the crust from the grill and top with your favorite toppings.
sliced banana peppers
To each, his own!
Place the pizzas back on the grill and cook until the cheese melts.
Everyone gets their own pizza and there is no whining!
Fun for an afterschool snack, fun for a teenage party, just plain fun!
What are you doing still hanging out around here?
Go make your pizza!

Get creative - you can add herbs, garlic or a bit of Italian herbs to the crust before kneading.
