Grilled Greek Pizza Recipe

There are only a few things in life I love more than the smell of yeasty dough bubbling up while baking. The aroma floods my mind with countless memories, comforting and warm.

Memories of mom’s homemade bread from a live yeast starter. Memories of tender buttery yeast rolls, as soft as clouds. Memories of clumsily learning to make pizza from scratch as a newlywed.

Summer Grilled Greek Pizza Recipe

We tend to associate dough with heavy calorie-laden meals. Yet today’s Grilled Greek Pizza is lean-and-mean with fresh raw veggies and just a sprinkling of feta cheese.

I love grilled pizza in any form, but Grilled Greek Pizza is at the top of my list this summer.

Loaded with creamy hummus, arugula, fresh garden tomatoes, briny olives, a touch of feta, and a drizzle of good olive oil, I’m going Greek any chance I get!

Healthy Grilled Greek Pizza Recipe

The foundation of any good grilled pizza is the dough. I make a simple dough, with just 6 ingredients: yeast, water, sugar, bread flour, olive oil and sea salt.

The most important thing to remember about making quality pizza dough is use good quality ingredients. Make sure your yeast hasn’t been sitting around too long, and use the best olive oil and sea salt you can get your hands on.

Grilling Pizza Dough

Although homemade pizza dough is amazing, if you’re in a hurry you can buy pizza dough in the freezer section, or sometimes the deli section of your grocery store.

Easy Grilled Greek Pizza Recipe

Grill the pizza dough on hot grilling stones then load with hummus and fresh ingredients. Drizzle the top of the Grilled Greek Pizza with olive oil to bring out the flavors.

If you don’t have a grilling stone, you can use a baking stone or just throw the pizza dough right on the grill grates. It’s just a little harder to flip over when on the grates.
