Expert Tips

Cooking times may vary due to grill temperatures so be sure to carefully watch the dough as it cooks to make sure it isn’t burning.

Don’t cook the second side of the crust for more than a minute or two because it will cook completely after you top it with the sauce and cheese and put it back on the grill.

Be sure to allow the cooked pizza to cool for a few minutes before cutting it so that the cheese will set and not run off when eaten.
