How To Grill Pizza

Grilling pizza is really easy, especially when you use a pre-made frozen pizza. This guide will show you just how simple it is.

How to Grill Pizza

Yesterday was the summer solstice – the longest day of the year.  That means that Summer is officially here along with higher temperatures for a few months.  Since I like to cook, it brings to mind the expression, “If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen.”

On that note, I discovered a simple and inexpensive way to keep my kitchen and house cooler with a surprising way of cooking pizza – on the grill. Today I am going to share with you how I do it.

For the pizza, I pick up a couple of Jack’s thin-crust pizzas at Walmart.    I preheat my gas grill to 400 degrees.


Once my grill is ready, I unwrap my pizzas, discard the plastic wrap and cardboard, and place them on the grill.  I set my timer for 7 minutes.  When the time is up, I rotate my pizzas 180 degrees and then grill them for about another 8 minutes.  (It’s important to check the temperature on your grill.  It is easy for the temperature to fluctuate and you don’t want it to get too hot and burn the pizza.  A slight char around the crust is normal.)

I remove them from the heat and let them sit for a couple of minutes.  Paired with fruit or a simple side salad, they make a quick and easy meal that’s delicious.  Plus, I did not have to heat up my kitchen.

Didn’t that seem easy enough?

Grilled pizza is THE best!! My husband thought I was crazy when I first suggested it but now he's totally sold.

I've never grilled a pizza, but it looks like a great idea and so much better than heating up the kitchen when it's hot already. I could definitely go for one of those drumsticks, too.
