Instructions on how to grill pizza & samples were provided by Jack’s Pizza.
Confession time: I am not a fan of pizza. I think it happened when I was working somewhere where we ate pizza like 3 or 4 times a week. Eventually, I just became like “NO MAS!” and I tapped out.
That’s not to say I don’t ever eat pizza. It’s just not a common occurrence. And to get me to eat pizza, it usually has to be a really, really good pizza. Enter grilled pizza.
I have to admit, I had never even considered grilling my own pizza. I suppose it makes sense, as I do enjoy woodfired oven pizzas. Even after seeing it on all sorts of cooking shows, the thought had still never occurred to me. I certainly never planned to grill a frozen pizza.
However, after reading these simple instructions for how to grill a pizza, there was no reason not to give it a go. I figured a day by the lake on the 4th of July was the perfect time! It was tasty and surprisingly delicious. It didn’t seem to take too long, either. Although I wasn’t the one doing the grilling. We all know how that goes, right ladies?
This grilled pizza serves 3-4, or it would make a fabulous appetizer.
Tell me – will you be trying out grilled pizza at home?
- Frozen Pizza, such as Jack’s brand pizza.
- Pre-heat your gas grill to 400°F with the lid closed
- Using a spatula or tongs, carefully place the pizza directly on the center of the grate
- Cook for 12 to 15 minutes, rotating half a turn approximately seven minutes into the cook time
- You’ll know your pizza is ready to enjoy when the cheese is melted and bubbling in the center, the crust is golden brown and the pizza has reached 160°F
- You can check internal temperature with a standard cooking thermometer.
