Brick-Oven Grilled Pizza

I just discovered a way to have brick-oven/wood-fired pizza...without the brick-oven! It's super easy and fun, and the pizza turned out similar to Punch Pizza, one of our favorite pizzarias in town. Here's the recipe I used (super easy with a breadmaker, too). Sunday night is pizza night at our house, and it was a gorgeous weekend, so we decided to try it on the grill! This recipe would be great for a party.

Brick-Oven Grilled Pizza

1 1/6 c water
1 1/2 T oil
3 c flour
2 T sugar
1/2 t salt
1 t garlic (minced)
1/2 t italian seasoning
2 t yeast

Combine ingredients in bread maker and set to "dough" cycle (if making by hand, combine water, sugar and yeast, then rest of ingedients and knead; then let rise for 20 minutes). Light grill to medium-high.

Once dough is formed, divide into 4 balls. Roll each out to desired shape/size and spray each side with cooking spray. When grill is ready, put pizza dough directly on grill (two at a time). Cook on one side, then flip. Immediately add desired toppings while the second side is cooking. Keep in the grill until cheese is melted. Check frequently that the bottom doesn't burn (may need to move to top grill rack while the cheese melts).

Makes 4 individual pizzas. Yum!
