For the pizza
ball pizza dough, about 16 ounces
olive oil
marinara sauce
heirloom tomatoes, thinly sliced
fresh mozzarella cheese, torn
prosciutto, finely sliced and pulled into strands
fresh leaves thyme, oregano and basil
parmesan cheese
salt to taste
freshly ground pepper to taste



Preheat your grill to high 20 minutes before grilling. Toss a large handful of hickory wood chips directly over the grates or apply 1 pre-packaged wood chip pack to integrate rustic smoky flavors into the dough.


Meanwhile, roll out the room-temperature dough on a floured surface to 1/4-inch thickness. Brush dough with oil and dust with cornmeal.


Lay dough directly over grates, searing the first side for 3-5 minutes with lid open or until dough rises and edges begin to brown. Flip dough over and immediately dress with sauce, tomatoes, cheese and prosciutto. Turn down the temperature of the grill to medium. Close the grill lid and allow the pizza to bake until cheese bubbles and dough is cooked through.


Remove pizza from grill and place on cooling rack to rest for 3-5 minutes.


Season with salt and fresh ground peppercorn, to taste. Garnish with fresh leaves of basil, thyme and oregano. Finish with a sprinkling of shaved Parmesan. Slice and serve.

      We don't include instructions for preassembled pizza in this recipe. We'll include fresh and frozen pizza grilling in our "How to Grill Pizza" article that will be posted next week. We'll provide a link when live.
