Pizza On The Grill

1 c warm water

1 (¼ oz) pkg active dry yeast

1 pinch granulated sugar

2 tsp salt

1 TBS olive oil

3 1/3 c flour

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 TBS fresh basil, chopped

½ c olive oil

1 tsp minced garlic

¼ c tomato sauce

1 c tomatoes, chopped

¼ c black olives, sliced

¼ c red pepper, roasted

2 c Mozzarella cheese, shredded

4 TBS fresh basil, chopped

Dissolve yeast in warm water and add sugar. Add salt, olive oil and flour, mix until dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl. Place dough on a lightly floured surface and knead in garlic and basil until smooth. Set aside in a well oiled bowl to rise until doubled. Split the dough in half and form two oblong crusts. Heat the grill and brush the grate with a mixture of olive oil and garlic. Place dough on hot grill, flipping over when lightly browned. Brush oil over crust and 2 tablespoons tomato sauce, half of the tomatoes, half the olives and half the peppers. Sprinkle with one cup of cheese and 2 tablespoons basil. Close the lid and cook until the cheese melts. Repeat with the second pizza.

Serves 2
