  • Servings:Makes 4
  • Prep Time:20 minutes
  • Cook Time:10 minutes
1. Preheat grill to medium-high; clean and oil the grill.
2. Form dough into 2 pizza crusts, as described on page 26. Once the grill is hot, place 1 pizza crust on the grill, cover, and cook until the top side has formed large bubbles and the bottom easily lifts off the grate with a metal spatula, about 2 minutes. Flip the dough and top with half the sauce, cheese, and basil. Cover and cook for 2 to 3 more minutes, until cheese begins to melt and sauce is heated through. Using a spatula or tongs, slide the pizza onto a serving plate. Repeat with second pizza crust and remaining toppings. Cut each pizza into 4 pieces and serve.
