How To Make Fresh Grilled Pizza Without A Pizza Stone

6

It’s coming up to Memorial Day, and most of us will be firing up our grills, cooking some amazing food, opening a few cans of beer and toasting all the wonderful men and women who have given their lives in service of our great country.

Over the last few years, we’ve seen pizza become an ultimate Memorial Day dish served direct from the grill.

And it’s no wonder.

BBQ grills provide a lot more heat than the average home oven, so the grills can almost mimic the actions of a professional pizza oven; getting the crust to turn into that gorgeous, blistered shape that reminds us of our a local pizzeria and ensuring the cheese melts into oozing deliciousness etc.

However, cooking a pizza directly on grates is difficult.

You can’t be sure of even heat throughout the dough and, in most cases, you can end up with parts of the dough burnt and overdone, whilst other parts remains chewy and uncooked.

Which is why many BBQ pizza recipes call for a pizza stone to be used on top of the grates, which creates even heat.

However, pizza stones are expensive! Here’s how to get the same effect without needing to buy a pizza stone. 

 

Pre-heat the grill correctly 

 

We recommend a gas grill over a charcoal grill. The heat is more even, so the pizza dough is heated evenly throughout.

Set the burners to a medium to high heat and place a Chef Remi Grill Mat on top of the grates. Cover the grill and allow it to get very hot for about 10 minutes.

Now place your pizza dough onto the center of the grill mat.   

 

If you only have a charcoal grill, you can still make pizza.

 

First, get a chimney’s worth of charcoal very hot.

Then, make a ring of coals around the edges of the grill, and place your grates on top.

Now, wait until the coals are gently glowing and no longer flaming, and then place your grill mat on top of the grates and cover the grill.

Allow about 20 minutes for the grill to get to a hot enough temperature to cook the pizza dough properly. 

 

Use the right amount of dough 

 

You need about an 8 ounce ball of dough stretched to 12-14 inches in diameter.

Using too much dough will mean a thick, chewy pizza where the dough does not cook properly (or burnt toppings trying to get the dough cooked through).

Too little dough, and you end up with a thin, fragile base that burns way too fast before your toppings are cooked.

You don’t need to make your own dough. Pre-made dough from the local pizzeria or supermarket is fine, but do allow it to sit at room temperature for about an hour before you attempt to stretch it (on a well-floured surface) for a more even pizza base.

 

 

Next time, we’ll look into how to get the best out of your toppings for pizza. But we hope you can now see how versatile your Chef Remi Grill Mats are.

Your family and friends are sure to be amazed when you start serving them freshly made pizza directly from the grill, with no pizza stone or pizza oven in sight!

Pizza is an all time favourite for me, but I’ve always cooked it in a basic over. I cant wait to try making this and tasting how much different it will be!

hi I love this idea but I had a idea for shrimp pizza but using white sauce instead. How long do you recommend keeping the pizza on topped with shrimp? I have made it in the oven but on the grill I am scared because I use raw shrimp.

With the lovely weather we’ve been having this post has really inspired me. I have never considered cooking pizza on a grill and thought it must be done in an oven, a real eye-opener for me – thanks!

HQR said: Finally - I've Found A Paring Knife That Feels Right And Works As It Should!

For the last eight years or so, I have been trying to find a good replacement paring knife for an antique one that accidentally got thrown away with potato peelings. I've tried a ton of different ones, from dollar store brands all the way to expensive name brand knives. None has worked well for me - either because they don't cut as they're supposed to, or because they just don't feel right in my hand. But this one is perfect!!! It fits in my hand naturally and slips right through foods as I'm peeling and slicing them. It looks beautiful and I love the fact that it has a lifetime warranty in case anything does go wrong. I highly recommend it!

Jessica H said: Best spoon set

Having a dishwasher safe spoon set gives me the freedom to use it anyway I choose and not worry about clean up. I used the vented one for getting my vegetables and it made serving for picky eaters who don't want their food touching,, especially the juice for another food. Effortlessly I drained the vegetables. Thanks for making my life easier and the spoon rest helped to make cooking sanitary. Any cook knows cooking can get messy and you seem to run out of counter space quickly but having the clean surface to quickly put the spoon down.

I haven't had an opportunity to use these yet but I am looking forward to trying them out soon. I can say that they are somewhat heavy and not thin and they are made very well. Just from holding them in my hands and looking at them, I can honestly say that this product is better made then the others
