Where to begin

Start with a 1-pound bag of pizza dough from the grocery store. Divide in half for two pizzas. Each half makes roughly a 10- to 12-inch pizza. Roll out, brush one side with olive oil, and grill oiled-side down over high heat for approximately 8 minutes.

Oil the other side, flip over, and put ingredients on the cooked side. Cook for approximately another 8 minutes until cheese is melted and dough is golden and blistered in spots. Slice and serve immediately. (If the bottom seems dark but cheese isn’t golden, don’t be afraid to finish under the broiler to get it just right.)
