Host a Backyard Grilled Pizza Party

Why order delivery? Invite friends over for a hands-on pizza experience

Summer heat often drives people out of the kitchen and into the backyard for some outdoor grilling. However, every once in a while, even in the intense summer heat, it's common to get cravings for some piping hot, oven-baked pizza. Skip out on baking pizza indoors or ordering delivery, and instead try making grilled pizza on your backyard grill.

If you’re looking to easily entertain with a perfectly crisp, well-charred, slightly smoky pizza, then grilling pizza is the way to go. Not only is it simple and fun, but it also allows your guests to get creative. Have your favorite pizza dough recipe prepared ahead of time and assemble a line of creative toppings such as artichokes, smoked salmon, caramelized onions, goat cheese, toasted pine nuts — the options are never-ending. Allow your guests to chose their own toppings, and then toss on the grill for quick-cooking, personalized pizzas!

You can also try these grilled pizza recipes, which are guaranteed pizzeria-quality pizza straight from your backyard.
