This is the first grilled pizza recipe we've made, but this is far from the last. It's the only way I want to make homemade pizza now. The smokiness of the grill lingers in the crispy crust while bringing out the flavors of your toppings in a way that the oven just can't. SO good! Plus, I have a little secret.
It's store-bought pizza dough.
I know, I know. Homemade is always better.
But if you're looking for relaxing on the patio with your friends or just to unwind – a can of pizza dough that you grabbed from the store is SO much easier. And it still tastes delicious.

Add dollops of ricotta across the entire pizza.
