Pizza on the grill

Grill setup

Two level fire, that is one side hot, the other side not as hot.

Make pizza dough, my bread maker has a good recipe, and I use that, does not matter what you use, I guess you could buy dough too.

The ingredients of the pizza are up to you. I like fresh tomatoes, marinated artichokes, garlic and cheddar cheese. The tomatoes are sliced sort of thin, the artichokes are diced. I use pre-diced garlic, it is easier and quicker, not that much of a purist. The cheese is grated; we buy a big bag of cheese at the local bulk store.

Once the grill is heated, make sure it is sort of clean, use olive oil to coat the grates. Flatten out the dough on a greased pan; I grease it with olive oil. Coat one side of the dough with the olive oil. Slap the dough, oiled side down onto the hot side of the grill and cover. Check after about 3 minutes, the dough will bubble, you want the bottom to be browned, but not burned.

Flip the crust over to the cooler side of the grill, with the browned side up. Place ingredients onto the crust. Cover and cook about 15-20 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and everything is nice and hot.

Do not allow the bottom to burn, that is why you have a cool side of the grill. Keep the cover on as much as possible.
