Homemade Pizza for the Grill
For your next summer gathering, get the grill going and prepare a perfectly grilled pizza with Southern Living’s Homemade Pizza Dough. Homemade pizzas are fun to make and delicious to taste. Whether you’re craving a cheesy, savory, or even a sweet slice, we have plenty of pizza recipes for you to choose from.

For a sweet slice, try this Grilled Pineapple Dessert Pizza. This pizza is topped with cream cheese, brown sugar, cinnamon, and pineapple slices, drizzled with a caramel topping, and sprinkled with toasted pecans.
Once you’ve picked your pizza (or pizzas), it’s time to prep the dough. The dough ingredients include water, dry yeast, sugar, salt, all-purpose flour, olive oil, and yellow cornmeal. After preparing the dough, divide and shape it into individual balls and let it “relax” in the fridge for at least an hour before allowing your guests to roll their own dough. This prep will make it easier on your guests.
Now, you’re ready to grill. Be sure the grill has reached at least 400 degrees before placing the dough cornmeal side down on the grill grate. The high heat will begin cooking the dough immediately, which prevents sticking and prevents the dough from falling through the grate. Next, allow the dough to cook for 3 to 4 minutes. You can flip the dough once you see grill marks and it is fully cooked on one side. After flipping, top the cooked side of the crust with your desired sauce and toppings, continue cooking until the cheese is melted, and enjoy!
