Can you believe this was my first real grilled pizza experience?

I knew pretty much right away that this was going to be a regular this summer. It is just so easy, and you keep all of the heat out of the house. Plus, you can divide the dough and have everyone make up their own pizza, and they only cook maybe 6 minutes total. Brilliant!

I wanted to show you 4 different but really easy variations of grilled pizza, but first you need a really great pizza dough.

Often, by the time I think to make pizza for dinner I no longer have an hour and a half to let it rise and I’m out of luck. But this Quick and Easy Pizza Dough requires no rise time and just a few minutes prep — stir, roll, and you’re ready to go. Plus, Fleishchmann’s pizza yeast makes the dough so easy to roll.

If you need an easy tutorial, here’s a how to video for making grilled pizza.

    Thank you for sharing. I didn’t know there was a Pizza Yeast, will definitely be trying that one. And your pizzas look amazing. Nothing like freshly made, hot off the grill pizza.

    Hooray for grilled pizza! I’ve never grilled pizza myself before, so you’re not alone. But, I must try it after seeing these yummy variations! So fun and easy for the summer. That BBQ Hawaiian version is calling my name!
