Grilled Margarita Pizza

Pizza Dough:

2 1/2 Tbsp Olive Oil

8 oz Fresh mozzarella, thinly sliced

12 Fresh basil leaves, chiffanade

2 Small plum tomatoes, thinly sliced

Salt and pepper to taste

With pizza dough at room temperature, preheat an outdoor grill to medium heat and place the stone pizza grill on and close the grill lid.  Dust pizza peel and dough with cornmeal and dust your hand and dough with flour.  Flatten the ball of pizza dough into a 12″ round.  Place dough onto pizza peel.

Give the pizza peel a shake before adding the toppings to make sure the dough has not stuck to the peel.  Top the dough with mozzarella, tomatoes, basil and season with salt and pepper and drizzle with olive oil.  With a quick motion, slide the pizza onto the heated pizza stone.

Close grill cover.  Bake undisturbed for 4 minutes.  Check the bottom of the izza dough to prevent from burning.  Grill about 4 minutes longer.  Before serving top with fresh basil, sprinkel with salt and drizzle with a  touch more olive oil.
