Who doesn’t love homemade pizza? Especially when it’s made on the grill! This Grilled Margherita Pizza is a fresh and delicious recipe combining mozzarella cheese, fresh basil and garden tomatoes on a garlic and olive oil-brushed crust.

Ingredients: *Makes about 6 small pizzas 


  • 2 Tbsp. dry yeast
  • 2 Tbsp. honey
  • 1 1/2 cups warm water
  • 4 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 to 4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp. Kosher salt
  • Cornmeal for sprinkling


  • 6 Roma tomatoes
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes
  • 1 handful of fresh basil, chopped
  • 2 cups fresh mozzarella
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove



  1. Combine the yeast, honey and warm water in a standing mixing bowl. Let sit for about five minutes until the yeast begins to bubble.
  2. Add the oil, 4 cups of flour and salt. Blend on low using a dough hook.
  3. Increase the speed and knead for 8-10 minutes. Add more flour as needed if the dough is sticking to the sides of the bowl. (It should stick to bottom of bowl but pull away from sides.
  4.  Cover the bowl and let rise for 30-40 minutes.


  1. Heat grill to a temperature of about 400 degrees (or hotter.)
  2. Punch dough down and divide into about 6 pieces. Sprinkle surface with a little cornmeal, and roll dough out into circles about 1/3-1/2 inch thick.
  3. Brush one side with olive oil and garlic.
  4. Prepare toppings: Slice tomatoes, basil and cheese.
  5. Place pizzas carefully on hot grill, with oiled side down.
  6. Grill about five minutes over high heat. Watch closely and turn heat down if bottoms are browning too quickly.
  7. Flip pizzas over, brush again with oil and garlic, and add toppings. Cook another five minutes.
  8. Serve immediately!
