Ingredients

  • One recipe homemade or store-bought uncooked pizza crust dough
  • olive oil for brushing crust
  • 1 cup homemade or store-bought pizza sauce
  • 16 oz. shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 8 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 1 cup blackberries, rinsed
  • 1/4 cup basil leaves, sliced thinly
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. On a lightly floured surface, roll out pizza crust to desired thickness. I make mine about 3/8 of an inch.
  2. Allow crust to rest, covered with a clean towel in a warm area, while you prepare the pizza toppings.
  3. When all of your toppings are prepared, heat the grill to 500º or as close as you can get it. When grill is properly heated, immediately lower heat to the lowest level and place dough directly on grill and close the lid. Allow dough to cook for two to four minutes without opening lid.
  4. When the bottom of your dough is crisp and has grill marks, remove it from the grill and return grill to high heat.
  5. Working quickly, spread a thin layer of olive oil and the toasted side of the dough. Layer pizza sauce, cheese, bacon, blackberries and basil on top. Top with salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Return topped pizza to grill, raw side of the dough down. Lower heat to the lowest possible setting and close the lid. Allow pizza to cook for four to six minutes without opening the lid.
  7. Once grill marks have been achieved on the bottom of your pizza crust, move pizza to upper level or indirect heat and allow it to cook until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
