Barbequed Pizza Crusts

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup warm water (110°F)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 3 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 pkg active dry yeast  (2 1/4 tsp)
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon basil
  • For Grilling:

  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • Directions:                                                                                                ♥ My daughters favourite dinner to help make!

    1. Place the ingredients into the bread maker in the following order:  Water, olive oil, sugar, kosher salt, flour, and yeast.
    2. Turn the bread maker machine on with the Dough setting and press Start.
    3. While the dough is kneading and proofing, dice up the garlic and basil and set aside.
    4. After the dough has risen once, add the basil & garlic and let the machine knead & proof the dough once more.
    5. Light up the barbeque grill to a medium temperature.
    6. Divide the dough into 4 individual pieces, or 2 mediums, or 1 large pizza. (4 small pizzas is easiest to cook on the BBQ)
    7. Roll the dough out semi-thin on a lightly floured board.
    8. Tear off large pieces of aluminum foil, sprinkle some flour on it and place each pizza dough on it’s own foil.
    9. Microwave the 1/2 cup of oil with the remaining minced garlic and brush it onto the tops of the pizza dough right before throwing them on the grill.
    10. Cook the dough on grill for about 2 minutes per side. When you flip the crust over, brush the garlic oil on the other side too.
    11. Remove the half-baked pizza crust from the grill and add your sauce and toppings.
    12. Put the pizza back on the grill (without the tin foil) and leave it on until the cheese melts, and there’s grill marks on the bottom of the pizza.

    If you don’t have a bread machine:

    1. Start by adding the yeast and sugar to the warm water and let it rise for 10-15 minutes.
    2. Combine all of the other ingredients  in a deep bowl, add the yeast and knead the dough really well until all the ingredients are incorporated and the dough is smooth.
    3. Place in an oiled bowl, cover with a damp towel and put in a warm place for an hour.
    4. Punch down the dough and cover the bowl again and let it rise until the dough has just about doubled in size… then continue with steps 5 to 12 listed above.

    Enjoy!
