Grilled pizza is perfect for those hot summer days when you can't bear
to turn on the oven. For added flavor, grill the tomatoes, skin-side down, before chopping.
Ingredients: 
  • 4 plum tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 large clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • All-purpose flour, as needed for dusting
  • 1 pound frozen pizza dough, thawed overnight in the refrigerator
  • 2 Italian-style links sweet or hot sausage, grilled and sliced into rounds
  • 6 ounces shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 2 cups arugula, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

Method: 
Prepare a grill for medium heat cooking. Mix tomatoes with garlic, 2 tablespoons of the olive oil and salt and set aside.

Working on a lightly floured surface, divide dough into 3 balls, then flatten each and dust all over with flour. Hold up 1 ball of dough by its edge and turn it, steering-wheel-style, letting gravity stretch it into a 7-inch circle. Lay it on the work surface and stretch it to form an 8-inch circle. Set aside and repeat with remaining dough.

Working in batches if needed, brush dough with some of the remaining oil. Lay it on the grill, oiled-side down, and brush the other side with oil. Grill until the bottom browns, about 3 minutes. Using a spatula and tongs, flip the crust and top with reserved tomato mixture, sausage, mozzarella and arugula, leaving a thin border around the edge. Close the grill lid, or cover pizza with a tent of heavy foil, and cook until crust turns golden on bottom and cheese melts, about 2 mintues. Remove from the grill and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Cut pizzas into quarters to serve.
