Char-Griller Grills and Smokers

pesto and tomato pizza

The next time you think you want to order a pizza, remember that your grill is good for more than chicken and steak.  This simple grilled pizza is a quick, easy meal that will blow most delivery pizza out of the water.  It can also be made with pre-prepared crust from your local grocery store… and for even more ease, make your dough the night before, store covered in the fridge, and roll it out just before cooking.  Happy grilling!


Grilled Pizza with Tomatoes and Pesto (from Fleischmann’s Yeast via Huffington Post)

  • 3 1/2 to 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 envelope pizza crust yeast
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 1/3 cups very warm water (120°F to 130°F)
  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • Additional flour for rolling
  • 1/2 cup prepared pesto sauce
  • 6 plum tomatoes, thinly sliced (or sun-dried tomatoes)

We specializes in rustic-style pizzas, calzones and "pastazones," which are calzones stuffed with pasta. We also serve "pizzinis" -- house-made flatbread sandwiches that are "stacked and packed" with fillings like meatballs and barbecued chicken. Our pasta specialties include chicken Alfredo, pasta pomodora, mac & cheese, ravioli and lasagna. Finish it all off with cheesecake, brownies or tiramisu for dessert
