For Father's Day my family will be doing some barbecuing as I am sure many of you will. I came across this pizza on the grill recipe, and I was excited to try it out. I was thrilled with the results!
I thought it would be really fun to have a pizza bar for Father's Day. You can have a whole table filled with different toppings that everyone can put on their own pizza.
Here are a few changes to the recipe as well as my suggestions and things that worked for me.
Make the Dough
4 1/2 cups of flour
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon oil
1 cup warm water
1 tablespoon yeast
- Put your yeast and warm water in a cup and put it to the side and let the yeast dissolve while you are getting your bowl and ingredients out.
- Combined honey, oil, and water/ yeast mixture and mix together. Add flour and mix or knead for 3-5 minutes.
- The recipe calls for 3-5 cups of flour. I made it once using 4 cups and it tasted great but when I used 4 1/2 it made the dough more stiff and it didn't stick to things as much while you are moving it around.
- Separate the dough into 8 balls. Use your hands to flatten and make a round pizza that is 1/4 inch thick. Mine turned out to be 6-8 inch across.
Barbecue the Pizza
- Warm up your barbeque so it is a medium-high temperature.
- Place the dough onto the barbecue and let it cook for 2 minutes or until brown and puffy.
- Take the dough off the grill and place it on a cookie sheet the cooked side facing up.
- Add your own toppings.
- Place back onto the grill for another 5 minutes or until bottom side is brown and cheese is melted.
