  • 1 batch pizza dough
  • Pesto
  • Smoked mozzarella grated
  • Fresh ricotta
  • Sliced tomatoes
  • Cornmeal for rolling
  • Fresh basil for garnish


  • Prepare and preheat grill to medium
  • Sprinkle cornmeal on floured cloth and roll out dough to desired thickness. (Cornmeal helps prevent dough from sticking to grill grates)
  • Brush both sides of dough with olive oil. Grill pizza until it begins to brown and get grill marks.
  • Remove from grill, spread pesto to the edges of the cooked pizza. Add dollops of ricotta and smoke smoked mozzarella cheese.
  • Return to grill to finish cooking and cheese is melted.
  • Remove pizza from grill and top with fresh tomato slices and fresh basil.
