This is a family favorite for us when the garden is full of tomatoes and fresh basil! We've baked it on the very hot grill or in the oven - delicious both ways! We use a fresh refrigerated pizza dough that we roll and/or stretch out. The sauce is the best! Thank you, LOL!
Pizza is as easy to make on the grill as it is in the oven—and the toppings are limited only by your imagination.
