Grilled Pizza

Makes 2 (10") pizzas
  • 1 ball Kowalski's Fresh Pizza Dough (from the Bakery or Deli Department)
  • - Kowalski's Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • - kosher salt
  • 2/3 cup pizza sauce
  • 8 oz. fresh mozzarella cheese, cut into 1/4" thick slices
  • 8-10 large fresh basil leaves

Preheat half of a gas or charcoal grill to high (400°) and the other half to low (300°). Divide dough ball in half; roll each half 1/4" thick and about 10" in diameter. Brush top of each with olive oil; sprinkle with salt. Lay dough oiled-side-down on the hotter half of the grill; brush top with oil and sprinkle with salt. Grill dough without moving until grill marks form on the bottom (about 2 min.). Flip dough with a spatula or tongs to the cooler half of the grill. Spread 1/2 of sauce evenly over dough and arrange 1/2 of mozzarella slices on top. Cover and grill, rotating if necessary to avoid any hot spots, until dough is lightly charred and cheese is melted (8-10 min.). Transfer pizza to a cutting board; top with 1/2 of basil leaves. Cut into wedges; serve immediately. Repeat with remaining dough and toppings.
