Fire Grilled Breakfast Pizza

Breakfast Pizzas done.

Nothing tastes better than homemade pizza on the grill!  I use dough made from sourdough starter, but you can also purchase pizza dough frozen (or partially cooked crust), and make it that way!

Ingredients

2 Meduium or 4 small Pizza Crusts (either homemade or frozen)

Toppings of Choice for Dinner Pizzas

1 TBSP. Olive oil

1 TBSP. herbs (fresh or dried),

1/2 C pizza sauce or freshly sliced plum tomatoes

1 C - 2 C Mozarella cheese (fresh or regular, grated or sliced)

1/2 C Parmesan cheese (grated or shaved)

1 Pkg sliced pepperoni

1/2 - 1 C precooked mushrooms or sausage

1/4 C sliced olives, jalapeno peppers, or anything else that appeals to you.

Toppings of Choice for Breakfast Pizzas

1 TBSP. Olive oil

1 TBSP. herbs (fresh or dried),

1/2 C pizza sauce or freshly sliced plum tomatoes

1 C - 2 C Mozarella cheese (fresh or regular, grated or sliced), or Cheddar

1/2 C Parmesan cheese (grated or shaved)

1 Pkg sliced pepperoni

1/2 - 1 C precooked mushrooms or sausage, bacon or ham (sliced or crumbled)

1/4 C sliced olives, jalapeno peppers, or anything else that appeals to you.

2-8 fresh cracked eggs (on a plate for easy delivery to pizza) or partially scrambled eggs

 

Directions

We use a gas grill, but charcoal works well too (just push all the charcoal to one side so it's not directly under the pizzas once the toppings go on.

  1. Preheat the grill to as hot as it will go!
  2. Pat and roll your pizza dough to an artistic shape. (OK use frozen pizza dough if you must)
  3. Slap the dough on the grill and grill for one or 2 minutes per side. There are no rules.  The thickness of the dough and the heat of the grill determine how long.  You will just know.
  4. Once the dough has nice grill marks on both sides, it's ready for toppings.  Take the pizza off the grill, close the lid, and shut off ONE side.
  5. Brush the pizza's with olive oil, and top as desired.
  6. Transfer them onto the side of the grill that is off, cover and let bake until the cheese is melty and they are done.
  7. For Breakfast pizza, sometimes you have to tuck the cheese around the jiggly eggs to prevent them from sliding off.
  8. Cut and eat!

Grill Shopping Tip

Think twice before buying a thicker piece of meat; a 2-inch thick steak takes four times (not twice) as long as 1-inch thick steak to cook.

Grill Cooking Tip

If you're cooking something that's been marinated, make sure to pat the item dry before it hits the grill. Any sugar in the marinade will burn.
