Pizza on a BBQ (or oven)

How do you make pizza on a BBQ? You just make pizza on a BBQ!
All you need is a BBQ and a metal plate to lay your pizza on.

Pizza dough (Pizza Hut style)

Ingredients for the dough, enough to make two personal sized pizza’s:

  • 450 grams flour
  • 250ml water
  • 1 packet (7 grams) of yeast
  • 2 tablespoons (30ml) (olive) oil
  • 1 tablespoons (15ml) sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon (1.5ml) garlic salt
  • 1 teaspoon (5ml) salt (the regular kind)

Mix all dry ingredients together (the flour, yeast, sugar, garlic salt, salt) in a bowl, then add the wet ingredients (water, oil), and start mixing. Mix with one hand on the bowl, and one hand in the bowl, to maintain a good grip.

Once the dough solidifies a bit to a (still rather wet) ball, sprinkle some flour on the counter-top & start really kneading it. Around 10 minutes of kneading should be enough to get a decent ball together.

Now place the ball of dough back in the bowl (or a new one, or some container of sorts), and let the dough rise in a dark, warm-ish place (although others prefer a cold place, like the fridge). After a couple of hours the dough should have expanded enough to use (that’s the yeast working its magic). Up to 48 hours is fine.

Next step is to knead the dough again a bit (not too much) and start using it!

Ingredients for a basic tomato sauce

  • sieved tomatoes (just a regular pack)
  • oregano (dried, fresh, doesn’t matter too much)
  • a pinch of garlic salt
