Instructions Checklist
  • For a charcoal grill, carefully slide two of the pizza dough circles, oiled sides down, onto the lightly oiled rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium-hot coals. Grill for 1 to 2 minutes or until dough is puffed in some places and starting to become firm. Working quickly, carefully brush crusts with olive oil. Using tongs, carefully turn the crusts over and transfer to a baking sheet. For each pizza, spread a crust with one-fourth of the pizza sauce. Sprinkle with one-fourth of the cheese. Top with one-fourth of the sausage mixture. Transfer the pizzas from the baking sheet to the grill rack. Grill about 2 minutes more or until cheese is melted and crust is crisp. Remove pizzas from grill. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium-high. Place dough circles on grill rack over heat. Cover and grill as above.)

Instructions Checklist
  • Repeat with remaining two pizza crusts and toppings. Transfer pizzas to a cutting board; serve immediately.
