Sometimes when it comes to pizza, the simplest toppings are the best. Ripe tomatoes, fresh basil and creamy mozzarella atop a homemade crust make a pie that is both classic and delicious.


Select ingredients:


  1. Begin by preparing the crust at least an hour in advance by combining flour, water, yeast, olive oil, 1 tablespoon salt and sugar in your stand mixing bowl. Mix on low until the dough comes together into a ball, then use the dough hook attachment to knead the dough for 15 minutes on medium. When done kneading, roll into a ball and place in a greased bowl for 1-24 hours to rise. If allowing to rise overnight, place the dough in the fridge, if not, leave in a warm spot.
  2. Roll or stretch out the dough into one large round or two smaller circles and dock all but the outside edge with a fork. Carefully place the dough on the grill over low heat, for 5 minutes or until the bottom begins to blacken. Then flip the crust and spread the sauce over the cooked side, adding cheese, tomatoes, garlic and basil. When all toppings have been distributed, close the grill lid and allow to cook for another 5 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the underside is starting to blacken.
  3. Remove from the grill, sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste, and allow the pizza to rest for a minute before slicing and serving.
