How to Make Whole Wheat Grilled Pizza

 

How to grill pizza
 
 

For the past couple weeks I have been doing a fitness challenge put on by Jackie Damp . She has been an awesome fitness coach that eats, breathes and loves everything fitness.

 

She recently sent me this super easy recipe for a whole wheat pizza crust. 

 

The day I made the crust, it was a beautiful day out and my big beautiful grill was calling my name. For the longest time, I have wanted to try grilling a pizza.

 

All I can say is WOW! The  grilled pizza turn out great with this crust, and it was amazingly easy. Why did I wait so long to grill pizzas!

 

To be honest, the idea of grilling dough always scared me. I envisioned it being a big mess and the dough just falling through the grates. But that was not the case at all.

 

And the tastes is to die for! So hurry up and give this bad boy a try before grilling season is over. XO – Chef Corey

 
Here is what you need: (makes about a 12 inch pizza)
- 1.5 cups of whole what flour
- 3/4 cup of warm water
- 1.5 tsp of rapid rise yeast
- 1/2 tsp of Italian seasoning ( totally optional. I made it with and without… both was are yum…. just added some fun flavor to the dough)
1. Knead all the ingredients together. I am lucky enough to have a sweet blender that has a dough hook and dough mixing setting :)
Knead or if you are lazy like me… push dough button :) hehehe
2. Put under saran wrap and let sit for about 20 minutes. 
3. Heat grill to medium/high while you roll out your dough. 
4. Oil up your grates to prevent any sticking.
5. Lay dough out on oiled grates.
6. I divided out dough in to a papa bear, mama bear and baby bear servings ;) Close lid and let cook for about 2 minutes. 
7. In the meantime, get toppings ready. Pizza sauce, cheese, ect…
8. After the 2 minutes are up, check on dough. It should be puffing up and have slight grill marks on the underside. If this hasn’t happened yet, close lid and continue to check on it every minute.
9. Once your dough is puffing up and have slight grill marks on the underside, remove from grill. You want to put our toppings on the side that has the grill marks (the side that was facing the flame)
Papa Bear- Cheese & green olives
Mama Bear – Goat cheese & artichoke hearts
Baby Bears 1 & 2 – Cheese, green olives & pepperoni!
10. Place pizzas back on the grill and cook until cheese has melted. I would check every 2-3 minutes, and do some shuffling of the pizzas so no burning occurs. Depending on your grill, you might need to turn down your grill a tad. Just keep you are eye on it :) Our pizzas took about 6 minutes on this side ( so a total of 8-9) minutes.
 
 
 
Perfection! The pizza is so yummy & healthy, you will probably find me in the dead of winter, grilling up some pizza pie!

  1. I would totally gobble up Mama Bear’s pizza! YUM!

  2. I have given up refined grains but needed to satisfy my Friday night pizza craving and not heat up the house. This recipe is perfect! I tried it side-by-side next to one that was not specifically for the grill and the other failed miserably. But we ate all of this! Make two batches if you are feeding a larger family. But the whole wheat makes it so that you don’t have to eat as much as you would of a normal pizza to feel full.
