The Best Tools For Perfect Pizza On The Grill
If you're a fan of brick oven pizza then this is the gear that will help you create it directly on your grill, from pizza stones to pizza peels and more.
For anyone who hasn't tried grilling pizza, you will be surprised to learn that it isn't all that hard. You can make them exactly as you like them, and nothing beats fresh hot pizza still crispy from the grill or oven rather than soggy from the cardboard box.
The easiest and simplest tool is an honest to goodness pizza oven but you don't have to take out a second mortgage to make great pizza on the grill. As I discuss in my articles on pizza elsewhere on this site, for most grills you don't need any special devices other than a pizza stone or pan.
The difficulty with making pizza on the grill is simultaneous pizzagasm (i.e. a crust that is crisp, smoky and lightly charred with piping hot cheese and toppings). It is really tricky getting the bottom and the top done at the same time. If the stone is too hot and the top is not, you can burn the bottom and serve undercooked sausage on the top. Or visa versa. You can turn the cheese to plastic and still have wet dough. Usually it is just a matter of experimenting with the number of coals and their placement, or the dial settings on a gas grill.
Here are my favorite tools to help you get it right, and one to avoid. Also be sure to check out our grilled pizza and flatbread section here for tips for making perfect crust and several amazing recipes!
