out to fit your grill space and add your favorite sauce, cheese, and other toppings. Then, take it to a grill heated to about 500 degrees F. You can put it directly on the grill or on a pan or pizza stone. If you do use a pizza stone, preheat the stone on the grill first. Keep in mind that if you put the pizza directly on the grill, you will get some char around the edges of the crust, so if you want a more golden-brown crust, a pizza stone is recommended.

Include Dessert

Pizza isn’t the only type of pie you can grill. You can also grill dessert pie. If you’re feeling cobbler, you can do that too. Grilling pie is relatively straightforward. Simply prepare your favorite pie recipe. Fruit pies are highly recommended for grilling, but you can also grill other types of pie that you would normally bake. The challenge comes in determining when it’s done. A grill can be a little more finicky than an oven, but generally speaking, you want to keep temperatures about the same. If you would bake a pie at 375 degrees F for 40 minutes in the oven, try to hit that temperature and time in the grill. Just remember to keep a very close eye on it. Every 10 minutes, take a look and see how it’s coming along — but don’t let too much heat out. When it looks done, pull it out, let it rest, and get ready to serve up a delicious grilled pie.

Grilling is all about culinary freedom. Experiment, have fun, and dig in!
