      Grilled Margherita Pizza

      Grilled Margarita Pizzas from Everyday Good Thinking, the official blog of @hamiltonbeach


      We love sharing grill recipes, and many of our favorites are just a step outside the box. This is true of our grilled flatbread pizza, a uniquely prepared version of a classic favorite. We love grilling the dough because it makes a beautiful presentation and offers a crisp crust that is still soft and chewy on the inside. We topped ours with just the basics to create a simple Margherita pizza bursting with great Italian flavor. Use fresh basil and mozzarella. Since there are only a few ingredients, make sure they are high quality. And don’t forget the salt at the end. Everyone agreed it “made” the pizza!

      Grilled Margherita Pizza

      Yield: Yields 4
      Author: Hamilton Beach Test Kitchen


      • 1 recipe Pizza Crust for Breadmaker
      • Cornmeal
      • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
      • 2 cloves garlic, minced
      • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
      • 2 Tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
      • 4 medium tomatoes, thinly sliced
      • 24 large fresh basil leaves
      • 16 ounces fresh mozzarella, thinly sliced
      • Sea salt


      1. Prepare pizza crust dough. Divide into 4 pieces.
      2. Preheat indoor grill to SEAR/450°F.
      3. Combine olive oil, garlic and Italian seasoning. Set aside.
      4. Dust cutting board with cornmeal. Roll each piece of dough into 8-inch circles.
      5. Place one circle of dough on grill at a time. Grill 4 minutes. Use a pizza peel to remove from grill and invert dough onto cutting board.
      6. Lightly brush olive oil mixture on grilled side of crust. Sprinkle with a 1/2 Tablespoon Parmesan cheese. Arrange 5 to 6 tomato slices on crust. Top with 4 to 6 basil leaves and 4 slices mozzarella cheese.
      7. Slide pizza back on grill. Grill 7 to 8 minutes or until cheese is melted. Remove from grill and sprinkle with sea salt to taste and additional chopped basil.
      8. Repeat with remaining pizza dough and toppings.


      If using an outdoor grill, grilling times may be much quicker. Check first side of dough at 2 minutes. Dough should be starting to bubble with grill marks on bottom.
