Grilled Pizza

I have been wanting to make grilled pizza for awhile. I will definitely be making this again!! Just be sure to have all the ingredients prepped and ready to assemble the pizzas. I made 2 pizzas. During the making of the second one, I had to be pulled away from the grill for a few seconds and slightly burnt the bottom. Luckily it was still edible. The meal came together quickly by using canned pizza sauce, and pizza dough that was previously frozen. It's a great way for me to get dinner on the table for a night when I work late, am on call, and my husband has an evening class.

Grilled Pizza

2 frozen pizza doughs (thawed in fridge overnight)
1 can pizza sauce
1 red bell pepper
1/4 red onion
3 cloves of garlic
1 bunch fresh basil
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

Prep all ingredients so that everything is ready for the pizzas to be assembled.
Cut the pepper and onion into thin strips.
Mince the garlic.
Roughly tear the basil (or roll together in a bunch and make thin slices for basil confetti).
Preheat the grill to medium high.
Spray the grill with cooking spray(carefully) or drizzle the dough with olive oil.
Place the dough on grill.
Allow to grill for about one minute, or until the first side has a few grill marks.
Flip dough over, and begin to assemble pizza.
I added the sauce, onion, garlic, peppers, cheese, and some of the basil.
Grill until the cheese had melted.
Make sure to check the bottom of the crust to make sure it isn't burning.
Remove from grill and sprinkle with the remaining basil.
