You get the smokey flavor from the charcoal grill, and the rich flavors of a homemade pizza wrapped up into one delicious meal.

Easy Pizza on the Grill

If you’re short on time this is the best pizza recipe to make. Using a pre-made pizza crust (or even a frozen pizza and add more toppings!) from the store all you have to do is heat up the grill, put on all toppings you want, cook and eat!

Assemble all your pizza ingredientsThe easiest way to make a quick pizza is to first assemble all your ingredients. Having everything pulled together makes it easy to decide which flavors go best with one another- especially if you’re making more than one pizza- then it can become an assembly line of sorts.

All about the pizza toppings
The best part about pizza is that YOU can choose your ingredients. There’s no rule as to what to use, so experiment and enjoy!

I am a huge believer in pizza toppings. I LOVE flavor and you all know I love anything pickled. My pizzas usually are loaded with vegetable toppings, from pickled banana peppers to green olives, to fresh mushrooms and basil to fresh tomatoes (or canned tomatoes when it’s not fresh tomato season)! It’s all good and I always have trouble deciding which ingredients to use.

Basic Pizza crust and sauceA very small amount of olive oil and salt on your crust before adding the sauce gives your pizza a nice flavor boost. Try rubbing a garlic clove over it too for a garlic flavored crust.

For your sauce you can use spaghetti or pizza sauce. Pizza sauce tends to be a little bit thicker, but it’s also more expensive. Use as little or as much sauce as you like.

ingredient toppings on your pizzaAdd all your toppings to your pizza and coat with cheese.

final pizza before grillingAfter the cheese you can top with a few more essentially ingredients (like tomatoes).

      You won’t regret it! The added bonus is that you’re not heating up your kitchen in the summer by using the oven.
