A wood fire in a covered Kettle grill,
adds a distinct smoke flavor.

Grilling pizza is a great way to introduce some new flavor to any pizza you love. Your grill, as long as it has a cover, can give you the same results as an oven, which is perfect in the summer: heat when you need it, but not in your home. Preheat your grill and get it good and hot. If using charcoal or wood, let it burn down to glowing white embers, avoiding direct flames, which will cause the pizza crust to burn before it has a chance to cook. If using gas, heat to 500°. In all cases keep the grill covered.
