Homemade pizza on the grill
Homemade pizza is the best! Making your own pizza at home can be a bit daunting, but it's easy and fun once you get the hang of it. We'll show you how to make homemade pizza from scratch with this easy recipe.
- 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon sugar
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoons active dry yeast (or one envelope of fresh)
- 1 cup water, lukewarm (110 degrees F)
- 2 tablespoons olive oil or melted butter, plus more for greasing the bowl and pan if not using parchment paper. You can also use cornmeal for this instead of oiling the pan itself. This will add to the crunchiness of your crust!
Once you have the dough ready, it's time to add some toppings! You can make a wide variety of pizza with this recipe, but here are some suggestions:
- Sauce (tomato or pesto)
- Cheese (mozzarella or parmesan)
- Vegetables (peppers or mushrooms)
- Meat (bacon or sausage)
There are also plenty of herbs that will add flavor and spice to your pizzas. Just think outside the box—you can use anything from coriander to mint for a unique taste, or keep the staples - oregano and basil. Perfettamente delizioso!
A pizza stone is a piece of unglazed ceramic used to mimic an oven floor's effects. Its porous nature absorbs heat and distributes it evenly across its surface, which allows your crust to crisp up evenly and quickly.
You can use your pizza stone for more than just pizzas; you can also season it with oil or butter before sliding in any type of bread or pastry (like naan) for an extra boost of flavor.

How to make the pizza dough
- If you're making pizza dough by hand, mix the yeast and 1 tablespoon of flour together in a large bowl. Add warm water, oil and honey and mix thoroughly. Add 4 cups of flour to the mixture and stir until it comes together into a smooth ball of dough.
- If using a food processor, place all ingredients except for the last 2 cups of flour in your food processor and pulse until combined. Turn on your processor to kneading and slowly add remaining flour until it forms into a smooth ball (you may not need all 5 cups).
- Cover with plastic wrap or put in an oiled bowl; let rise at room temperature for at least an hour but no more than two hours.* Preheat your pizza stone on the open grill for 30 minutes before adding toppings.
- Push down on the dough as needed so it can stretch thinly without tearing when stretching out. Once ready for toppings, spread sauce over the crust, followed by cheese (if desired), then any other toppings.
- Use hands or spatula to lift the edges slightly while transferring pizza directly onto hot stone (if using); otherwise, transfer onto parchment paper lined baking sheet before sliding greaseproof paper onto the heated stone (this helps prevent sticking).
