Grilled Mediterranean Turkey Pizza

Let me tell you…grilling pizza is next level! I absolutely love it! This pizza was bursting with flavour! The grilled smokiness on the crust gives it a unique flavour. The trick is that you cook the dough on one side first on the grill & then remove it, flip it, brush the grilled side with sauce and toppings, and return the pizza to the grill for final cooking. I will definitely be grilling most of my homemade pizzas this summer that’s for sure! I highly recommend you give this a try! Happy Grilling šŸ™‚

The Recipe

Time: ~25 min prep + 10-15 min. cook time = 40 min.

Servings: 8 slices

Calories/slice: ~ 325

Ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • 1/2 tsp basil
  • 1/2 tsp oregano
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella
  • 1/2 cup diced cucumber
  • 1/3 cup diced red onion
  • 1/2 – 1 cup crumbled feta
  • 1 Roma tomato diced
  • 1 cup shredded cooked turkey
  • Pizza dough (homemade or bought)
  • Flour

Directions:

  1. Mix the olive oil, mince garlic, basil & oregano to create the sauce. Prep the rest of the toppings.
  2. Roll & stretch the pizza dough. Place it on a well floured pizza stone.
  3. Grease the grill plates with olive oil and turn on to high heat. Once heated slide the dough off the stone onto the grill and cook for 3-4 minutes or until it begins to brown. The top of the pizza dough will start bubbling with air pockets. Remove grilled dough and flip over on cookie sheet/pizza stone.
  4. Top grilled side of dough with sauce and toppings. Slide back onto the grill and cook for 10 min. longer or until bottom begins to char and cheese is bubbly. Pull off the grate onto a cutting board. Slice and serve!
