This is why we love different grilling recipes. Pizza is a favorite around here and the grill makes it super fast and easy.
Can you grill pizza?
Yes! It is such an easy and fun way to make pizza. We just love it cooked on the grill.
Grilled pizza is one of those things I finally wanted to try my hands at, and I’m so glad I did. The kids love it, I love it, and it is a fun twist on our traditional Homemade pizza.
Do you need a pizza stone to grill pizza?
No, you don’t. You just place the pizza directly on the grill. It is so easy!
Ingredients for easy grilled pizza:
- premade 12″ pizza crust
- pizza sauce (we love our easy to make homemade pizza sauce)
- mozzarella cheese, shredded
- Parmesan cheese, shredded
- fresh basil leaves (optional)
- and any additional pizza toppings you want!
How to grill pizza in 15 minutes:
First, go ahead and preheat the grill. My gas grill has a thermometer on the lid, so I preheat it to 400.
The high temp will give your pizza the crispy bottom crust. If you don’t have a thermometer for your grill, then I highly suggest you get one. Amazon has several on sale.
Spread pizza sauce onto the pizza crust.
Add cheese and pepperoni and place directly onto the grill grate. No special pans required! I told you this was very simple and easy!
It is also helpful to use a large cutting board to slide the pizza onto the grill. (I love this cutting board with the handle) You can also use a pizza pan, turn it upside down, place your crust on it and slide your pizza off of the pan onto the grill.
Pizza pans are even cheaper on Amazon right now.
Close the lid and grill for 6-10 minutes or until cheese is melted and crust is brown on the bottom.
Remove from grill and slice with a pizza cutter. Serve with fresh basil leaves if desired.

See I told you this recipe was really easy to make. I know I cheat a little with the pre-made pizza crust, but you could use your own pizza crust, you would just need to cook it longer on the grill before adding toppings.
However, I just love this super easy grilled pizza recipe exactly the way it is. My pizza loving son, just loves this pizza and I love how I can serve it with a side salad and Dinner is done!
