Grilled Dessert Pizza

Why grill an entire meal outdoors then go back into the hot kitchen to make dessert? Grilled Dessert Pizza is a light and tasty ending to a fabulous dinner made over an open fire.

I love the flavor and crispy crust that I get from the charcoal, but you could make the same recipe in the oven or on the gas grill if you don’t have a charcoal grill.

I usually make savory pizza, but I decided to do a Grilled Dessert Pizza for a change.

I didn’t want something overly rich or sweet so rather than going with toppings like chocolate or marshmallows (which would be delicious, by the way-something to think about for a future post) I opted for fresh fruit and a light Greek yogurt drizzle.

If you want a really good pizza dough recipe, I’ve got you covered. Even better, if you have a sourdough starter I’ve got a great Sourdough Pizza Crust recipe too.

I’ve created a set of detailed instructions and photos explaining how to shape pizza dough for the best texture. 

It took me many years and many burnt fingers to work out my system for how to grill pizza over charcoal. I’ve got it down pat by now and am happy to pass on my hard-earned knowledge to you.

I’m really happy with the results of this recipe. The crust is crisp and smoky, the fruit is lightly sweet and juicy and the Greek yogurt drizzle adds a creamy finish. It’s the prefect light ending to your summer meal.

 

If you love this recipe as much as I do, I’d really appreciate a 5-star review.
