This pizza has reached the cheesy extreme, with extra gooeyness from the grill.

Ingredients

1
can (13.8 oz) Pillsbury™ refrigerated classic pizza crust
2
teaspoons olive oil
Canola oil or grilling spray
2
cups pizza sauce
1/4
teaspoon garlic powder
1/2
cup fresh chopped basil leaves
1/4
cup grated Parmesan cheese
2
cups shredded mozzarella cheese (8 oz)

Steps

  • 1 Heat gas or charcoal grill. Cut 12x8-inch sheet of heavy-duty foil; spray with cooking spray.
  • 2 Unroll dough; place on sprayed foil. Starting at center, press out dough with hands to form 13x9-inch rectangle. Brush dough with 1 teaspoon of the olive oil.
  • 3 Carefully brush canola oil on grill rack. Invert dough onto grill rack over medium-low heat; peel off foil. Cook 3 to 5 minutes or until bottom of dough is golden brown.
  • 4 Turn dough; grill 1 to 2 minutes or until bottom is set but not brown. Carefully remove crust from grill. Spread remaining olive oil and the pizza sauce over dough. Sprinkle with garlic powder, basil and cheeses.
  • 5 Return pizza to grill over indirect heat. Close grill; cook 3 to 5 minutes or until cheese is melted. Cool slightly before cutting into pieces.

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.
