As the weather heats up, keep your kitchen cool! Grilling goes beyond basic burgers and dogs with this homemade pizza cooked over an open flame. Its chewy, crispy crust and bold, wood-fired flavor beat oven-baked any night—and you can easily customize toppings with fresh-from-your garden herbs or veggies.
1/2 of pound gluten-free pizza dough
Gluten-free all purpose flour, for surface
1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
1-1/4 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup of finely, chopped, fresh basil leaves
1/4 tsp. sea salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1. Preheat grill to medium heat. Prepare dough according to package directions. Tip: Use premade storebought gluten-free pizza dough to save time.
2. Cook for 5 minutes and then flip dough. Once flipped, add cheese and tomatoes. Cover the grill and cook for another 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.
3. Remove from grill; garnish with basil, sea salt and pepper.
