Grilled Tomato Mozzarella Pizza

In the never ending quest to make as many different meals as possible on the summer grill as possible, one that we often make is grilled pizza which starts with grilled flat-breads and gets completely finished in a covered barbeque as well. In this simple recipe you will find a basic recipe and instructions that you can easily make endless variations by adding your own favorite ingredients. Grilled chicken with provolone or leftover steak and cheddar two of my favorites.we also often make these as appetizers at summer barbeques where we cut them in small wedges for delicious little finger foods to be served before the carnivorous feast.

In keeping with the fresh summer theme, the sauce here is a quick compote of vine ripened tomatoes and garlic that just bursts with fresh seasonal flavour. I like to finish these pizzas with a sprinkle of freshly grated Parmesan and some summer herbs from my garden like the basil shown in the photo.

Course: BBQ/Grilling

Ingredients
For the Pizza Dough
  • 4 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp instant rise yeast
  • 1 1/2 cups lukewarm water
  • 2 tsp sea salt
For the Quick Tomato Compote
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 large ripe tomatoes diced
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 3 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • salt and pepper to season
Instructions
To prepare the Pizza Dough
  1. Place all ingredients in the bowl of a stand mixer equipped with a dough hook.
  2. Mix for 5 -10 minutes on medium speed. You may need to add a little more flour, a tablespoon at a time until the dough doesn't stick to the sides of the bowl. Alternatively stir together with a wooden spoon before turning out onto a floured bread board and kneading for 5-10 minutes.
  3. Cover the dough and allow to rise for about an hour until about doubled in size.
  4. Turn the dough onto a floured surface and knead for another few minutes.
  5. Divide into 4-6 equal portions, form into balls and let rest for about 10-15 minutes before stretching or rolling the dough out into about 9 inch rounds or elongated flat-breads, whichever you find easier.
  6. Carefully place the dough pieces onto a preheated grill at low heat setting. When the dough begins to bubble and grill marks are on the bottom, about 2- 3 minute flip it and grill for another 1-2 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.
To prepare the Quick Tomato Compote
  1. Saute the garlic in the oil over medium heat for just a minute before adding the tomatoes, brown sugar, salt, pepper.
  2. Continue to cook until the tomatoes soften and the compote reduces to a jam-like consistency. Add the balsamic vinegar in the final minute or two of cooking.
To prepare the pizza
  1. Spread the flat-breads with Quick Tomato Compote and top with shredded mozzarella.
  2. Turn off the burner/s on one side of the grill and place the prepared flat-breads on that side so they are not under direct heat.
  3. Close the cover again and cook until the cheese is melted. Allow the flat-bread pizzas to cool for a few minutes before cutting and serving.
  4. A sprinkle of freshly grated Parmesan cheese and some chopped herbs make a nice addition after the pizzas are cooked and still hot.
