  • 1 recipe Perfect Pizza Dough, rolled into two 12-in (30-cm) diameter crusts
  • 2/3 cup tomato sauce 150 mL
  • 1/2 pkg shredded mozzarella cheese 100 g
  • 1 large buffalo mozzarella ball or 6 to 8 bocconcini balls, torn or cut into pieces
  • 1 pkg cherry tomatoes, cut in half 340 g

  • Step 1

    Preheat a lightly oiled grill to medium. Place crusts on a lightly oiled grill. Cook for 2 min. or until bubbly and rigid. Using tongs, turn crusts over.

Cut each pizza into six slices and serve.


We grilled this pizza to mimic the effect of a wood burning oven. To make this recipe indoors, heat a pizza stone in the oven at the hottest setting. Cook pizzas for 5 min., or until cheese is bubbling and crust is lightly browned.
