Grilled Pizza

This recipe comes from my cousin, Todd. He has now mastered the art of grilling pizza. I am sold and can't wait to try this myself. Since most of us do not have a fancy wood burning oven like Gwyneth Paltrow, this is a great alternative to getting that same kind of flavor. Todd kept it simple and made your classic Margherita pizza but feel free to add whatever ingredients you would like! Gwyneth also has some great ideas for pizza on her blog, Goop. I had to link her blog because she actually burnt her pizza which makes us amateur cooks feel better about ourselves.
Mozzarella or "Provel" cheese
Your favorite pizza dough
*You need a grill, obviously

Todd's directions

Turn the grill on. You want to turn half of the grill to high heat and the other half to low.
Put olive oil on a paper towel and spread across grill grate. Don't burn yourself!

Oil a baking sheet and roll your dough to whatever size you want on the baking sheet.
Now you are ready to put your pizza dough on the grill!
Place your dough on the high heat side of the grill. Cook for 3-4 minutes until sturdy enough to flip.

Put olive oil on the top of the dough that is not cooked and flip to the low heat side of grill. Add tomato sauce and toppings of your choice. Place your cheese first (we used "Provel" because it is a St. Louis specialty), and top with tomatoes and basil.

Close grill and cook for 3-5 min.
This will be your finished product. Yum!
Optional: drizzle with balsamic glaze for added flavor.
