grill out-cali pizza recipe

{cali pizza}
By no means are Dave and I grill masters (especially me as I get lost after turning on the propane) but we're definitely getting better. The thing I love about Florida is that it's pretty much grilling weather all.year.long. We haven't taken advantage of that as much as we should but going in to summer we're starting off with a bang. We've used our grill for chicken, steak, onions, green peppers, and corn on the cob.
My parents invited us over a couple nights a go for cali pizza on their grill. It's a summer staple with my family and when we all lived in DC, my girlfriends would come over and have so much fun creating our own pizzas and enjoying being together.


For the dough:
  • 1 1/4 cups warm (100 to 110 degrees F) water
  • 2 packages dry yeast
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 3 tablespoons good olive oil
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour, plus extra for kneading
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt

    After letting the dough rise, you place it on the grill, flip to the other side, drizzle it with olive oil and add your ingredients until they're melted and yummy. I'd suggest checking out the full recipe on the Food Network site here.
    My favorite toppings:
    mozzarella cheese
    feta cheese
    basil-lots of fresh basil
    cherry tomatoes
    red onion
    I hope you'll try out this recipe at some point in the summer. It's an easy way to add a delicious meal to your cooking repertoire. And it's a crowd pleaser because everyone can customize their own. Even picky ol' Dave loves cali pizza nights.


    1. Such a good idea. I love love cooking on the grill. I have never made pizza on the grill however and I have already announced it was the one thing I had to try this year. I think I may be taking your recipe to be my first ever pizza on a grill.

    2. This is such a fun take on pizza! I've wanted to try it out on our grill for a while now and this looks like the perfect recipe to try it out!

    3. Yum!! This looks like it would be such a fun date night!

    4. I've never heard of this! Genius! I'm having Matt make us a GF version ASAP!
