How to Make a Pizza on the BBQ Grill


Cooking a pizza on a barbecue gives the pizza a smoky flavor similar to a pizza cooked in a clay oven. In the barbecue, a pizza browns well and the crust will be nice and crispy. Barbecue your favorite frozen pizza or make your own homemade pizza and cook it on the barbecue for a tasty treat.

Things You'll Need

  • Pizza Barbecue Wood, wood chips or coal Aluminum foil or pizza stone Large metal spatula Plate
  • Start a fire in your barbecue using either wood, wood chips or coal. Wood and wood chips will add a better flavor to your pizza than coal will.

  • Let the fire burn until the flames are gone and the wood, wood chips or coal are only smoldering hot without flames.

  • Put the pizza in the barbecue either directly on the grill, on top of a piece of aluminum foil, or on top of a pizza stone. The bottom of the crust will cook more evenly if cooked on a piece of aluminum foil or a pizza stone. The crust will brown most evenly if it is cooked on a pizza stone. If you are using a pizza stone, put the stone in the barbecue to preheat five minutes before you put the pizza in. You can barbecue a frozen pre-made pizza or a fresh homemade pizza. Both turn out well on the barbecue.

  • Close the lid of the barbecue and let the pizza cook for about two to five minutes. Some pizzas will take longer. Open the lid and check the pizza every two minutes. When the cheese is melted and the slightly golden brown, it is done.

  • Use a large metal spatula to remove the pizza from the barbecue and slide it onto a plate. Be careful not to burn yourself, as the barbecue and pizza will be very hot.

Tips & Warnings

  • Pizzas cook faster on a barbecue than they do in a conventional oven.
