We start with a basic pizza dough recipe, Josh is partial to Mario Batali's recipe. These days, you can even get pre-made dough balls at places like Trader Joes and Wegman's. The next step is to think about sauce, cheese and toppings. We made a pepperoni/margarita pizza and a caponata and taleggio cheese pizza. While I made the sauces and sorted the toppings, Josh got the grill going/charcoal smoking, you want the fire nice and hot!
After your dough is rolled out, cover both sides with semolina flour and olive oil, then toss it on a hot grill. The first side takes about 5 minutes to cook.
When the first side was done, we brought the pies in for toppings. We did a reverse topping style, cheese, sauce, then meat. It seemed to help melt the cheese, but I think we'll test the traditional topping order next time.
