Grilled pizza can be a delicious change of pace. Because the pizza is not on a baking sheet, it becomes crispy on the bottom while still being soft on the top.
RECIPE FOR QUICK-RISE PIZZA DOUGH:
Makes 6 individual-size pizzas, two 10-inch to 12-inch round pizzas, or two 12-inch by 15-inch rectangular pizzas. In a food processor fitted with the dough blade, combine the flour, yeast, salt, and sugar. Process to mix. In a small saucepan or in a microwave-safe container, combine the water and olive oil. Heat until an instant-read thermometer registers 125 to 130 degrees F. With the food processor motor running, slowly pour in the heated water mixture and process until the dough forms into a ball. Continue processing for 1 minute more to knead the dough. Turn onto a lightly floured surface, cover with plastic wrap, and let rise for 30 minutes. To shape the dough into individual-size pizzas: Divide the dough into 6 balls. On the floured work surface, roll out each ball into a circle about 6 inches in diameter and about 'A inch thick. Brush both sides with olive oil. You can stack up the dough rounds and they won't stick together if they have been well oiled. The dough is ready for grilling. To shape the dough into two round or rectangular pizzas: Divide the dough into two balls. Brush the surface of a vegetable and/or pizza grill rack with oil. Stretch the dough to fit onto the rack. The dough is now ready for grilling.
For these and other grilled pizzas, use a vegetable grill rack or pizza grill rack for an evenly browned crust. Because pizza grilling goes fast, have your tools, rolled-out dough, sauce, and cheese at hand when you begin, along with plates or platters on which to put the finished pizzas. Be sure the sauce is piping hot, which will help ensure that the toppings fully heat through. Prepare the pizza dough according to the recipe directions. While the dough is resting, prepare a medium fire in the grill. Using a lightly oiled vegetable grill rack or pizza grill and preheating it over the fire will result in a more evenly baked crust, but using a vegetable grill rack is not necessary.
