Tips to Grilling Pizza
So here’s my quickie guide to doing grilled pizza. It’s not a step-by-step, hold-your-hand guide—because doing grilled pizza isn’t that difficult. LOL
Charcoal or gas will work. It’s just easier with gas because you can regulate the temperature. Coal is fine, too, but you have to be on top of things to keep your fire at the right temperature. Make sure your grates are clean of any “gunk”
We used flour tortillas, a friend had told me to use these and they worked GREAT! you get a nice crispy crust – but you could also make your own pizza dough if you’d like. I’m going to explain the way we made them with the tortilla shells on a gas grill.
Brush both sides of your tortillas with olive oil.
Get your toppings organized . Once you flip the dough, you need to top it quickly because you don’t have much wiggle room as far as cooking time goes. If you want any meats that need to be cooked, do so beforehand; on-grill time is too short to allow for cooking all the way through.
We used precooked Tyson grilled chicken, browned hamburger and canadian bacon.
PreHeat grill to medium
1. Gather all of your toppings, tortillas, tongs, spoon (for sauce), brush, metal spatula and cookie sheets (to transfer after cooking) near your grill within easy reach. (I would suggest having someone there to assist you as well.)
2. Lay your oil brushed tortillas on the grill – leave the grill open, as it will only take 1 to 1-1/2 mins to grill the crust.
3. Just check on them and when you can see the grill marks, flip them over with your tongs.
4. Now, sauce and top your pizzas like the devil himself is chasing your butt! This is not the time to go heavy on toppings. You need them to heat through and the cheese to melt. Like I mentioned before it’s helpful to have an assistant. Once you’ve got your pizza topped, close the grill lid so heat can reflect down onto the top. Cook for about 3-5 minutes, checking after about two minutes for doneness.
