Serves: 2 - 4

Prep time: 15 minutes

Cook time: 14 minutes

Indirect Heat: 500F - 525F

Note: the dough recipe rising time is 2 - 4 hours

What you'll need:

For the Dough recipe:

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon instant yeast
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup hot water (120F - 130F)
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil

    For the Vegetable Toppings:
  • 1 red onion diced
  • 15 - 20 asparagus spear tips
  • 15 - 20 pieces of broccoli in 1" pieces
  • 1 tomato sliced and halved
  • 1/4 cup prepared Alfredo Sauce
  • shredded mozzarella cheese

  • 2 - 3 tablespoons cornmeal

  • 1 pizza stone
  • 1 grill wok or perforated grill pan to saute vegetables (or prepare them in a saute pan on your stove or side-burner)

  • Step 1:
    Add the warm water and yeast to a large mixing bowl and stir to mix, let sit 5 minutes.

    Combine the rest of the pizza dough recipe ingredients to the bowl and stir lightly with a fork until the mixture starts to clump.

    Knead the mixture for 2 minutes with your fists and then form the dough into a ball.

    Place the dough in a glass bowl that's been coated or sprayed with cooking oil.

    Roll the dough over in the bowl several times so it's also coated with the oil and cover loosely with plastic wrap.

    Let rise for 2 - 4 hours in a warm draft-free location until doubled in size.

    Step 2:
    Dice the red onion into approximately 1/2" pieces.

    Break the asparagus spears so you have the tender tips, look for a bunch with about 15 - 20 spears. More or less depends on you.

    Wash the broccoli and cut it into smaller chunks, about 1/2" to 3/4" pieces.

    Step 4:
    Sprinkle cornmeal over a pizza peel or large platter slightly bigger then the crust.

    Transfer the dough to the cornmeal covered peel or platter.

    This will make transferring it to the BBQ much easier.

    Spread the Alfredo sauce evenly over the surface of the dough.

    Place the sliced tomatoes over the cheese.

    Step 5:
    Set up the grill for indirect cooking and place the pizza stone on the grates.

    Preheat grill to 500F - 525F.

    When the grill reaches temperature, cover the pizza stone with cornmeal to prevent the pizza from sticking.

    Place the pizza on the stone and close the lid.

    Cook 8 - 14 minutes depending on how soft or crispy you want the crust. Check occasionally to make sure the crust isn't burning.

    Serve immediately.
