Grilled Flatbread Pizza
April 10, 2014
If you’ve never tried grilled pizza then you don’t know what you’re missing. The crisp crunch of the crust with just the right amount of smoke, the gooey cheese, and a perfect layer of tangy tomato sauce come together to create pizza perfection.
Today we’ve got a quick and easy flatbread pizza recipe to get you started on your grilled pizza journey but from there you can start adding any combination of your favorite toppings.
2 tsp. active yeast
½ tsp. sugar
3 cups flour
1 tsp. salt
1 cup water
2 tsp. oil
8 oz. shredded mozzarella
1 cup tomato sauce
Mix yeast, sugar and ¼ cup warm water together and allow the yeast to foam, approximately 10 minutes. Add yeast mixture, flour, salt and remaining water to a stand mixture with dough hook and mix until the mixture is smooth and elastic. If the mixture is too wet, add extra flour.
Remove the dough from the mixture, coat with oil and place in a large bowl. Cover the bowl with a moist towel and allow the dough to rise until it has doubled in size, approximately 1.5-2 hours. Punch down the dough then cut it into four even pieces. Roll the pieces into balls then use a rolling pin to flatten them as thin as possible.
Prepare grill for 2 zone grilling, placing coals from one lit charcoal chimney on one side of the grill and leaving the other side bare. Working in batches, place the flattened dough on a well-oiled grill grate directly above the preheated charcoal. Grill for 1-2 minutes per side until it begins to puff up and is lightly browned.
Remove flatbread from the grill, top with tomato sauce and cheese and place back on the cool side of the grill.
Cover the grill and allow the pizzas to cook for approximately 10 minutes until the cheese has completely melted.
Remove the pizzas from the grill, slice and serve.
