Great Fresh, Summer Recipe: Pizza on the Grill!

Grilled Tomato-Basil "Pizza"

Thanks to my buddy Mike for this awesome suggestion!! This recipe is great if you’re hungry for pizza and don’t want to heat up your oven (or prepare a crust)!!

This is a simple “pizza” you can make outside on your grill using pre-made tortillas for the crust!

For each pizza, you’ll need:

1 tortilla (we use Food for Life brand; find it in the freezer section of most health stores)
1 TBSP olive oil (approx.)
1 large clove garlic, pressed
1/8 tsp dried oregano
1 Roma tomato, thinly sliced
2 large leaves fresh basil, sliced
1 TBSP freshly shredded Parmesan cheese (optional)*
1/2 cup shredded cheese (we use 1/2 Provolone & half Mozzarella)*

*Buy bricks of cheese and shred them yourself to avoid additives. (Seriously, take a look at the ingredients list on pre-shredded varieties!)


Preheat grill to about 350 degrees.

Brush both sides of the tortillas with olive oil. Spread garlic evenly on the top. Sprinkle with oregano. Add tomatoes and basil. Sprinkle evenly with cheese.

Set “pizzas” directly on the grill, and cook for about 2 minutes, until cheese is melted.

These burn easily, so don’t take your eyes off of them!!

Let rest for a couple minutes before serving!!

Call me when dinner is ready 🙂


Note – Of course, you can use whatever toppings you like and/or use pizza sauce instead of just garlic and olive oil, etc. But this is our favorite combo!
