Notes

Grilling Tips:

  • If the crust is darkening too quickly, you can place aluminum foil under the bread – you can also use a baking sheet or pizza stone as a barrier between the flame and crust
  • Another trick is to turn every other burner off so the flame is not directly under the whole pizza and move the pizzas around every five minutes to ensure the crust cooks evenly

Baking Alternative:

  •  Bake on a baking sheet at 400 degrees for 10-12 minutes – or until cheese is melted and crust is golden brown
