Host a BBQ Pizza Party

9 July 2024

Blog / Host a BBQ Pizza Party

Summer is here, and it’s time to fire up the grill! While burgers and hotdogs might be your usual go-to, you may be surprised by the other fun things you can throw on the flame. Grilling pizza on the BBQ is a delicious option that brings a smoky flavor you’ll love. Whether you start with a plain OGGI crust and create your own masterpiece or opt for a ready-made pizza for ultimate convenience, grilling pizza is a fun and tasty way to enjoy the season. Here’s everything you’ll need to host an unforgettable summer BBQ pizza party!

Setting Up a BBQ Pizza Station

  1. Choose Your Grill: Any type of grill works for pizza, whether it’s charcoal, gas, or a pellet grill. Just make sure it’s clean and well-maintained.
  2. Gather Your Tools: A pizza stone or a cast iron skillet are helpful tools if you have them, but if you don’t, that’s okay. Additionally, you’ll need a pizza paddle or a large spatula, tongs, and a basting brush.
  3. Prepare a Toppings Station: Set up a table with a bunch of toppings. Think outside the box with options like prosciutto, arugula, roasted veggies, and cheeses.

How to Grill an OGGI Crust

  1. Thaw the Crust: Remove OGGI’s gluten-free crust from the freezer and let it thaw. This can take about 10 minutes at room temperature.
  2. Preheat the Grill: Heat your grill to about 500°F (260°C). If you’re using a pizza stone, place it on the grill while it heats up.
  3. Prepare the Crust: Brush the top side of the thawed crust with olive oil. This adds a nice crispiness.
  4. Add Toppings: Add your desired toppings. Be sure not to overload it, so that it can cook evenly.
  5. Grilling: Place the pizza on the side of the grill with indirect heat and close the lid. Cook for another 5-7 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly, and the edges are golden brown.
  6. Serve: Use the pizza paddle or spatula to remove the pizza from the grill. Let it cool for a minute, then slice and serve!

Tips for a Successful BBQ Pizza Party

  • Keep It Simple: Stick to a few favorite toppings to make the process smoother and faster for your guests. 
  • Mind the Heat: Avoid high flames which can burn the pizza. Consistent medium-high heat is best.
  • Pre-Cook Some Toppings: Ingredients like sausage, mushrooms, and onions can be pre-cooked to ensure they’re fully cooked and add great flavor to your pizza.
  • Dessert Pizza: Consider ending the meal with a sweet twist by making dessert pizzas. Use toppings like Nutella, fruits, and marshmallows.

A BBQ pizza party is a great way to enjoy good food with great company. Whether you’re creating your own pizzas with OGGI’s crusts or grilling classics like the Margherita and Napoletana, the unique flavor from the grill will make it a meal to remember. So fire up the grill, gather your toppings, and get ready for a pizza party that’s sure to become a summer tradition!
