Tips for Grilling Pizza

• Preheat grill. Pizza should grill at 500°F. or 600°F.
• It is better to use a closed grill. If not, find a dome-lid that covers the pizza.
• Make sure to either have a station next to grill where you are constantly stretching the dough or stretch the dough ahead of time and keep it between parchment paper.
• Preheat the grill with a pizza stone set in place.
• Keep a pizza peel next to grill.
• Prepare a bowl with semolina and set aside.
• Have all ingredients ready to go.
• Sprinkle pizza peel with semolina. Slide it under the raw pizza and transfer the pizza to the stone by sliding it over the hot stone grill.
• Remove pizza with the pizza peel and slide it over a serving board.
• Eat the fresh—2 minutes after coming off the grill.
