Grilled Garlic Flatbread

June 5, 2011 – 6:28 pm

This was an easy and really tasty way to make garlic bread, and I’m looking forward to trying more pizza dough creations on the grill in the near future 🙂 The refrigerated dough I used tasted amazingly good cooked this way, so don’t feel that you have to make your own dough if you’re pressed for time.

Grilled Garlic Flatbread
Serves 4, generously

12-16 oz uncooked pizza dough
2 tbsp olive oil
5 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
2 tsp Italian seasoning mix (mine has marjoram, thyme, rosemary, savory, sage, oregano, and basil)

Preheat a propane grill to high heat.

While the grill is heating, roll out the pizza dough to a rectangle, about 8 inches by 12 inches, and place it on a piece of aluminum foil (I used Reynolds Wrap non-stick grilling foil for this). Brush the dough with the olive oil, scatter the garlic over the top, and sprinkle with the Italian seasoning.

Carefully move the foil with the dough onto the hot grill and close the lid. Grill for 2-3 minutes or until the bottom of the dough is nicely browned and starting to char just a bit around the edges. Turn the heat to low and close the lid again. Grill for a final 2-3 minutes to finish cooking the dough and roasting the garlic.

Carefully slide the garlic bread onto a plate and cut into four pieces. Serve hot.
