Yield:
8 servings

Ingredients
  • 1 pound pizza dough
  • 1/3 cup coarsely chopped fresh mozzarella
  • 1/3 cup coarsely chopped Gorgonzola cheese
  • Fresh ground black pepper
  • Extra-virgin olive oil
Directions
  • Use a charcoal or gas grill with a cover. Pile the coals or lava rocks high on one side of grill and place them sparsely on other side. Top with grate. Light grill and let coals heat up.

  • Divide dough into 8 pieces and stretch each piece by hand until 3 to 4 inches in diameter. Let rise a second time, covered, on a baking sheet. Place as many rounds as you can fit without crowding on hot side of grill. Grill for 1 to 2 minutes or until bottoms are light brown. Flip over and grill for 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until top sides are colored.

  • Flip again and place pizzas on cool side of fire. Top with cheeses, sprinkle with pepper and drizzle with oil. Cover grill and cook for 3 to 5 minutes, or just until cheese melts and browns slightly. Check once or twice to make sure underside is not getting burned; if it is, push coals away from the cool side of the fire. If cheese doesn't brown, you can run it under a hot broiler for a minute. Serve immediately.
