- 1 teaspoon of salt

- 1 teaspoon of sugar

- 25 ounce of dry yeast


In a small bowl dissolve the yeast with the cup of warm water. Let it stand for a few minutes until it's creamy! (10 minutes)

In a large bowl combine the other ingredients and mix together. Add the yeast mixture, beat until thick dough forms.

Turn dough out onto well floured surface. Form dough into round pizza like shape. Make sure it is smaller than your grill grid!

Roll out the pizza dough very evenly and make it about quarter inch thick. (anything thinner will break up!) have made your own pizza dough, let's prepare it for the grill!
