My favorite kind of pizza is made in a wood burning brick oven. Delicious, charred, thin and flavorful. Unfortunately, I don't have a brick oven... but I do have a grill. Too bad it is a gas grill and not a charcoal, but that is another story!
Many years ago I took a course at L'academie de Cusine and learned how to make grilled artisan pizza. It is VERY easy! And sooooo delicious! So fire up the grill and create a pizza just for you!

1 pizza fresh pizza dough
This is not a rocket science recipe. Make it the way you would like... that is what makes it ARTISAN.
I buy homemade dough from my grocers. NOT THE TUBE KIND! If your grocer does not have fresh dough, your local pizza shop might sell some to you. Or try making your own, it is very easy.
I love the dough Mrs. P from Faithfulness Farm makes. As a matter of fact, her primer on pizza is wonderful. Click HERE for a great and informative post.
Preheat grill to medium low.
Divide dough into 4 equal amounts.
Roll into a ball and flatten out. Pull into a 8 inch round. I grab the edge of the round and let gravity stretch it for me. Just work around the pizza this way. Mine always look like ovals, that's okay!
Put round on a rimless cookie sheet. Coat the dough with olive oil- liberally.
Put the dough directly on the grill, do not shut lid. Cook for 3-5 minutes. Watch it will burn easily. The pictures show a progression of the dough on the grill.
Take the crust off of the grill. Put it on the an oiled cookie sheet grilled side up.
Look at this great thin crust and wonderful melty toppings!
