For years, the Boboli company has made ready-to-use, prebaked pizza crusts. You can add your own sauces and toppings at home to make a customized, oven-fresh pizza. An alternative to normal oven baking is grilling. Grilling pizza simulates the more authentic taste of brick-oven pizzas. Boboli recommends using its thin crust versions, either original thin crust or 100 percent whole-wheat thin crust. Consider using the whole-wheat version for a healthier grilled Boboli pizza.
Prepare your gas or charcoal grill for indirect heat by only lighting half of your burners or by piling all the charcoal to one side of the grill. Indirect heat is preferred for grilling pizza because it prevents the crust from burning.
Apply a light coating of olive oil to your Boboli pizza crust with a barbecue or grilling brush and lay the crust oil side down on the grill grate for approximately three minutes, or until the crust turns golden brown.
Turn the crust over, apply more oil and grill the other side until golden brown.
Remove the Boboli crust from the grill with a pizza peel tool and add your favorite toppings, including marinara sauce, cheese, cured meats and vegetables.
Place the topped pizza back on the grill and cover with a lid for approximately 10 minutes, or until the cheese is fully melted. Remove the pizza and allow to sit for two minutes before serving.
Things You'll Need
Boboli thin crust pizza
Sauce and toppings
Add delicate vegetables and toppings like tomatoes and fresh basil at the end of the cooking process to prevent them from overcooking.
Only use fully cooked meats on your Boboli pizza. The advised grilling time for the pizza is not designed to simultaneously cook the meat through, only to warm it up.
