Feeling like your family could use a little more outdoor time? Why not get together and learn how to make your own pizza dough and then head outdoors to grill your pizzas?! Not only will you be spending great quality time together but you’ll be able to do it outdoors as well!!
For the Flatbread:
1 1/2 cups warm water
2 teaspoons honey
1 teaspoon active dry yeast
4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon kosher salt
2 tablespoons olive oil
For Grilling and Topping the Pizzas:
Toppings of your choosing
Mix the water and honey in the bowl of a stand mixer. Sprinkle the yeast on top and set aside for 10-15 minutes, until foamy.
Add two cups of the flour and gently mix until thoroughly incorporated. Cover with plastic wrap and set aside in a warm place for an hour. (Don’t have a warm place on hand? Try boiling some water in a pan, take it off the burner and place the pan of hot water in your oven with your dough.)
Add the salt, oil, and remaining two cups of flour, and mix with a dough hook for 5-7 minutes to knead the dough. Dough can also be kneaded by hand for the same amount of time. Coat the dough in oil, place it in a clean bowl, and cover it with plastic wrap. Set the dough in a warm place to rise for about an hour, or until approximately doubled in size.
Punch the dough down with floured hands and divide it into four discs. Place the discs on a lightly floured baking sheet, cover with a clean kitchen towel, and set aside to rise in a warm place for 30 minutes.
When you are ready to cook, preheat the grill to high. Flour your hands and spread each dough disc into a thin oval, allowing a little thickness around the edges. Brush olive oil onto the top of each dough oval. Carefully place pizza dough on the grill, oiled side down. Close the grill and let cook for 2-3 minutes.
Brush the tops of the dough with oil, carefully flip, and layer on your desired toppings.
Close the grill and cook for 2-3 more minutes, or until the cheese is melted. Remove from the grill, slice, and serve hot.
