Pizza on a BBQ (or oven)

How do you make pizza on a BBQ? You just make pizza on a BBQ!

Can you make pizza on a BBQ? Yes you can! 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. After a couple of hours the dough should have expanded enough to use (that’s the yeast working its magic).

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
