INGREDIENTS

Grilled Crust:

  • 3 cups of bread flour or All Purpose Flour, plus more to roll out dough with

    • Be sure to spoon and level your flour, never scoop with your measuring cup!

  • 1 tablespoon baking powder

  • ¾ teaspoon salt

  • ¾ teaspoon garlic powder

  • ¾ teaspoon paprika

  • 12 ounce light beer (room temp)

TOPPINGS:

  • Olive oil

  • Cashews, halved or whole

  • Seedless red grapes, cut in half

  • Cooked bacon, chopped

  • Crumbled gorgonzola cheese (blue cheese)

  • Shredded mozzarella cheese

  • Fresh spinach


INSTRUCTIONS

TO MAKE/GRILL THE DOUGH:

  1. In a large bowl, mix together flour, baking powder & spices. With a wooden spoon stir in beer and mix until a sticky dough forms.

  2. Dust your hands and work surface generously with extra flour. Knead dough until it is smooth and elastic, and barley sticks to your hands. You may need to keep adding flour. Add a ½ tablespoon at a time so not to dry out your dough.

  3. Add back to a clean bowl and let rest, covered for 15-60mins

  4. When ready, divide your dough into two crusts

  5. Pre heat your grill

  6. Roll and stretch the dough on to an oiled piece of wax paper. It is helpful if the wax paper is on a cutting board so you can easily move to your grill!

  7. Brush dough top with olive oil

  8. When ready to grill, flip dough on to grill grates, and peel off the wax paper

  9. Grill one side for 5 mins, watch the crust, as it will go fast depending on how hot your grill is. This side will be the “top” of your pizza crust. You will be able to flip it without it sticking when it is ready.

  10. Flip and grill the other side for another 5 mins. This will be the bottom of the crust, so be sure not to over cook, as you will be putting it back on the grill with the toppings.

  11. Remove from grill and bring inside to assemble your toppings

ASSEMBLE THE PIZZA:

  1. Brush crust with olive oil

  2. Layer mozzarella first

  3. Add cashews, grapes, bacon, gorgonzola and spinach

  4. Adjust heat on grill to low

  5. Slide assembled pizza back on to grill. Grill for 5 to 6 mins on low, then turn off heat, keeping grill cover closed so that cheese can melt.

  6. Remove when melted, and enjoy!
