Pizza is one of my favorite foods, and we’ve been making our own favorite pizza combos at home for years. I love throwing various ingredients on top of a pie and seeing how they turn out. I also love homemade pizza the night before any road race.


Unfortunately, it’s been so darn hot that we haven’t wanted to turn on the oven for any length of time.

The solution?

Grilling our pizza!

I was skeptical of grilling our pizza, to be honest, but it’s a lot easier than it sounds. It’s also absolutely delicious. And it takes a lot less time to cook.

I chose to cook our grilled pizza in a cast iron skillet, but it could easily be cooked directly on the grill if your grill is clean and flat. (The grates on ours are currently caving in, so I didn’t want my toppings sliding into the fire.)

To cook the crust directly on the grill, roll it out thick, then cook for a few minutes on the first side. When it’s ready (and if the grates are clean!), the crust should easily lift from the grill. Flip it, cook it for a few more minutes, then add the toppings and cook until the cheese is just melted.

If you’re not wanting to grill it directly on the grates, use the cast iron skillet trick. That works nicely, too!
