½ jar pizza sauce

1 oz (28g) Parmesan cheese

 

You'll Also Need:

Directions:

1. Divide dough into fourths and flatten each fourth with fingers and palms until it is thin. Brush both sides with olive oil and place each pizza between 2 pieces of greaseproof paper. Set aside.

2. Preheat grill to 200°C and prepare pizza toppings while grill is heating.

3. Remove greaseproof paper from dough and place directly on cooking grid or on a pizza stone. Cook dough on one side for about 3–4 minutes, or until topside is slightly puffed and bottom is crisp.

5. Use a spatula to place pizzas back on the cooking grill with toppings side face up. Cook 3–4 minutes, or until cheese melts and bottom is crisp and brown.

handy tips:

– Save time by using pre-made pizza crusts, available at your local bakery or grocery store.

– Lay out small pizza crusts with a variety of ingredients as a fun, buffet style so everyone can make their own pizzas.

– Experiment with a variety of ingredients like roasted bell peppers, goat cheese, onions, Italian sausage, ground beef, bacon, olives, fresh basil, anchovies, tomatoes, shrimp, spinach, or avocado. Do not add raw meats as toppings.
