  • 1/2 teaspoon honey
  • 1 cup warm water about 110 degrees
  • 1 packet 2-1/4 teaspoon active dry yeast
  • 1/2 teaspoon olive oil plus 1 teaspoon for oiling the bowl
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • cups unbleached all-purpose flour plus more if needed


  • In the bowl of your mixer add the 1/2 teaspoon of honey.
  • Pour in 1 cup of warm water [115-120 degrees] and whisk. Sprinkle in the packet of yeast and let it sit and get all puffy.
  • Pour in a half teaspoon of olive oil, a half teaspoon of kosher salt and a cup of the flour. Mix adding the rest of the flour gradually.
  • Keep mixing until the dough pulls easily from the sides of the bowl. Add more flour if necessary, a couple tablespoons at a time.
  • Add a splash of olive oil to a large, clean bowl.
  • Form the dough into a ball and place it into the bowl. Toss the dough ball around and up the sides of the bowl to coat.
  • Cover with a towel and let the dough rise for an hour or until doubled in size.
  • Once the dough has risen, punch the dough down until deflated. Lightly flour a work surface and the dough ball and reshape it into a ball.
  • Using your fingers press the dough out into your desired size to fit your grill or pan. I use a cutting board that so I can transport the pizza dough to the grill and so it will slide of easily.


  • Preheat your grill to high, clean your grill and lightly oil the grates with some paper towel that you've doused with a little olive oil. Once hot, open the lid and let the hot air out. Reduce the temp to medium-high and slide the dough onto the grill.
  • Close the lid and let the dough grill up for 4 minutes or until the underneath of the dough starts turning golden brown.
  • Turn the grilled dough {grilled side up} onto your cutting board. Reduce the temp once more down to medium. Slide the dough back onto the grill and quickly slather it with pizza sauce. Sprinkle with grated cheese, top with pepperoni and a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese. Close the lid and continue to grill the pizza for 4 to 6 minutes or until the bottom of the pizza is golden and the cheese has melted.
  • Pull the grilled pizza back onto the cutting board and let it rest a bit.
