Hot Salami Pizza

Ingredients
1 1/2
1 1/2
cups shredded fontina cheese (6 ounces)
1/3
cup grated Parmesan cheese
1
recipe Homemade Pizza Crusts for Grilled Pizzas
 
Olive oil
2
cups chunky tomato sauce
6
ounces assorted spicy cured meats, such as peppered salami, hot coppa, pepperoni, and/or smoked chorizo, very thinly sliced
3/4
cup chopped roasted yellow and/or red sweet pepper
3/4
cup pepperoncini salad peppers, drained
 
Crushed red pepper

Directions

  1. In a small bowl combine mozzarella cheese, fontina cheese, and Parmesan cheese; set aside.
  2. For a charcoal or gas grill, place one of the Homemade Pizza Crusts for Grilled Pizzas on the rack of a covered grill directly over medium-low heat. Grill for 1 to 2 minutes or until dough is puffed in some places and starting to become firm. (If the crust is frozen, grill for 2 to 3 minutes.) Using tongs, carefully turn crust over and transfer to the back of a baking sheet. Quickly brush grilled side of crust with oil.
  3. Sprinkle 1/4 cup of the cheese mixture over crust; top with 1/3 cup of the tomato sauce. Add 1 ounce of the assorted meats, 2 tablespoons of the roasted pepper, and 2 tablespoons of the pepperoncini peppers. Sprinkle with another 1/4 cup of the cheese mixture and crushed red pepper. Transfer pizza from baking sheet to grill rack. Grill for 3 to 5 minutes more or until crust is crisp and cheeses are melted, rotating crust as necessary to prevent burning. Remove pizza from grill. Repeat with the remaining crusts and toppings.

Homemade Pizza Crusts for Grilled Pizzas

Ingredients

1
cup warm water (105 degrees F to 110 degrees F)
1
tablespoon honey
1
package active dry yeast
2 1/2
1/4
cup whole wheat or all-purpose flour
3/4
teaspoon salt
3
tablespoons olive oil
2
tablespoons all-purpose flour
 
Olive oil

Directions

  1. In a medium bowl combine warm water, honey, and yeast. Let stand about 5 minutes or until mixture is foamy. Meanwhile, in a large bowl stir together 1 3/4 cups of the all-purpose flour, the whole wheat flour, and salt. Using a wooden spoon, stir in yeast mixture and 3 tablespoons oil. Gradually stir in as much of the remaining 3/4 cup all-purpose flour as you can.
  2. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead about 5 minutes or until smooth and elastic, adding enough of the remaining 3/4 cup all-purpose flour to keep dough from sticking. Shape into a ball. Place in a lightly greased bowl, turning once. Cover; let rise in a warm place until double in size (about 1 hour).
  3. Punch dough down. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead for 2 minutes, adding enough of the 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour to keep dough from sticking. Return to the lightly greased bowl. Cover; let rise in a warm place until nearly double in size (about 40 minutes). Punch dough down again. Divide into six portions. Cover; let rest for at least 10 minutes.
  4. Invert a large baking sheet; brush the back of the sheet with additional oil. Place dough portions, one at a time, on the prepared baking sheet. Using your hands, spread and press dough into an 8-inch circle. Line another baking sheet with waxed paper or parchment paper. Stack dough rounds on baking sheet, separating rounds with waxed paper or parchment paper. Use immediately, chill up to 4 hours, or freeze for at least 2 hours* or until very firm. Use as directed in individual grilled pizza recipes.
