  • tongs
  • heavy duty spatula


  • 1 ball premade dough
  • Olive oil
  • sea salt and fresh cracked pepper
  • pizza sauce
  • 8 ounces fresh mozzarella
  • 4 ounces burrata
  • Heirloom or other slicing tomatoes
  • 6-8 fresh basil leaves


  • Slice the tomatoes, season lightly with salt and pepper. Gather the remaining ingredients, chop the basil, then dry the mozzarella and burrata well with a paper towel and hand tear it.
  • Roll out the dough then brush the top with olive oil. If you’d like you can also add a sprinkle garlic powder. Transfer it to a pizza stone or baking sheet to carry it outside.
  • Once the grill is hot, place the dough on the grill oiled side down and close the lid. Grill 2-5 minutes or until you see the top bubble.
  • Using the tongs carefully lift one end. When the crust is gently crisped/charred on one side, carefully flip it. Add the sauce, tomatoes and mozzarella cheese (leaving space for the burrata) and continue grilling 4-6 minutes or the bottom is crispy brown, the cheese is softened and the tomatoes are warm. About halfway through this time add the burrata.
  • When the pizza is finished grilling, transfer it to a stone or baking sheet, add the fresh basil and if you're like a little fine sea salt. Slice and serve hot.
