Using Homemade Pizza Dough on the Blackstone
Everyone has their favorite pizza crust recipe! But if you are still looking, try my naan bread recipe which will make several dough balls.
This recipe was made with a Delallo pizza dough kit which made two 10-inch pizzas. Just add water to the pizza dough kit, mix and let rise.
If you don’t want to mess with homemade crust, then buy the pre-packaged pizza crust or naan/flat bread. They work just a good.
How to Make Pizza on Blackstone Griddle
Prepare all ingredients to make your pizza on the Blackstone. Dice your ingredients if needed.
Back to the dough!
Start by flouring a clean, dry surface. Portion the dough and make into a ball.
If a thin crust pizza is desired, then split the dough into 4 balls. Want a thicker crust, divide the dough into 2 balls.
If mini pizzas are desired, then split the dough into 6 or 8 balls. Place the dough ball onto the floured surface.
Use the tips of your fingers to push out the ball into a flat disk. With a thin crust the dough should be ½ inch or less. A thicker crust will have a ½ inch or more dough circle.
What Kind of Cheese Goes on Pizza?
A high quality shredded mozzarella is my cheese of choice. But you can use any cheese that you desire. Some like to use slices of a mozzarella ball.
Others choose to use a blend of different cheeses such as an Italian 6 cheese blend which is mozzarella, provolone, asiago, parmesan, Romano, and fontina.
How do you Make Pizza on a Blackstone griddle?
Evenly apply a layer of your favorite pizza sauce to the top of the crust using a spoon. This is my own pizza sauce recipe. Place a dollop of sauce on the top center and swirl evenly around with your spoon.
Thinly add a layer of shredded cheese to the sauce.
List of Pizza Topping Options
- Pizza Sauce
- Shredded Cheese
- Diced Peppers
- Diced Onions
- Sliced Olives – Green or Black
- Sliced Mushrooms
- Pre-cooked Meat toppings- Bacon, Pepperoni, Diced Ham, Ground Sausage
- Fresh Herbs such as Basil
Layer your desired food pizza toppings ingredients over the cheese. The food ingredients should be sprinkles evenly over the pizza sauce and cheese.
Finally, spread a generous layer of cheese perfectly over your toppings.
How to Cook a Pizza on Blackstone Griddle
Cooking pizza on a Blackstone Griddle is going to be different on every flat top griddle. The heat cooking surface should be around 400°F.
Cook pizza time will vary. The air flow under and around the griddle will affect your cooking time. Using a preheated pizza stone is best.
I recommend using a dome lid to help trap the heat around the pizza to aid in the cheese melting and cooking the pizza all the way through.
A perfect pizza should develop a crispy golden-brown bottom crust, the cheese melted, and the flat top grill pizza heated all the way.
