Ingredients for Pizza Dough:
*for bread machine*
1 c. warm water
1 ½ Tbsp. Tuscan Herb Olive Oil (or try Garlic, Pesto, Pizzaiolo or Family Reserve Olive Oil)
1 ½ tsp. sea salt
1 ½ tsp. sugar
3 c. flour
1 ½ tsp bread machine yeast
Makes 2 pizzas.
Place ingredients in the above order. Set machine for dough cycle. When cycle is complete, take dough out, cut in half and roll the dough quite thin. It is very difficult to maneuver a giant piece.
Preheat gas grill with all burners on high for 10 – 15 minutes. Prepare any sauces and toppings close to the grill so you can add them quickly.
Using a silicone brush, brush a light coating of your olive oil of choice onto one side of the dough, then carefully place the oiled side down on the grill. Grill 2-3 minutes. While it's cooking brush some olive oil on the dough that’s face up.
Then use tongs and or a large grill spatula to flip the dough over. Brush a little more olive oil on the cooked side, then quickly spread your sauce - do not go overboard with the sauce as this will interfere with cooking.
Then add toppings of choice (see below for staff recommendations for amazing toppings) and close the grill. Cook until the bottom is nice and crispy, the toppings are warmed through and the cheese is melted (only takes approximately 2 – 5 minutes, depending on your grill).
Once it’s done, use your tongs or spatula to slide finished pizza onto a cutting board.
Tips and Toppings:
"After the first side is cooked and you've flipped it, I like to brush a little more olive oil on the cooked side and start the toppings off with a little coating of sliced Buffalo Cheese or shredded mozzarella cheese to get a good melt. Add fried or carmelized onions then finish with sliced of prosciutto. Finish with a few sprigs
of fresh basil leaves and light drizzle of Fig Balsamic right before it comes off the grill or when it's already on your cutting board. Done!" - staff member Jen
