Well, it’s that time of year again–BBQ TIME! But what do you do if you’re vegetarian or vegan and you’re going to a barbecue or if you aren’t but you’re hosting a vegetarian or vegan at your barbecue? Grilled pizzas, of course! This is a really easy recipe that is definitely a crowd pleaser. You can buy already-made pizza dough at most supermarkets, but it’s very easy to make yourself (see this previous post for Matthew’s pizza dough recipe).

Grilled Pizza

  • 1 recipe pizza dough
  • Chopped vegetables for toppings (pre-roasted vegetables are my favorite; on this pie I used a combo of grilled onion, steamed brocollini, baby spinach, and spring garlic)
  • Tomato sauce (reasonable use for canned sauce here–doesn’t have to be “pizza sauce”, any tomato sauce will do)
  • Cheese (Mozzarella and feta work well, optional)
  • Cornmeal (you can use flour if you don’t have cornmeal),
  • Olive oil

  1. Heat grill on high.
  2. Dust a large wooden cutting board or a pizza peel with cornmeal.  Push down dough into pizza-shaped pies of any size.
  3. Brush the top with olive oil, and flip pizza onto grill, olive oil side down.
  4. Close grill and cook for 3-5 minutes, until crisp and browned on bottom. Brush top with olive oil and flip pizza.
  5. Top with tomato sauce and toppings of choice.  Cook another 3 minutes, until the bottom is crunchy and the toppings are heated through or melted.

The pizza was a success–with even the non-vegetarians enjoying the cheese-less pizza! Happy grilling everyone!
