When preparing homemade pizza on a grill, decide what type of heat source is best for you. Pizza grilled over charcoal requires experience managing coal temperatures. If you are new to charcoal grilling, this creates challenges. Instead, opt for a gas grill, which allows you to adjust knobs to regulate heat. Maintaining your grill temperature at 550 degrees F works well.

Also take into consideration timing. Fresh pizza dough requires cooking on both sides. The first side cooks in as little as one minute. For this reason, attentiveness is necessary. Avoid leaving the grill once the pizza begins cooking. Flip the dough and add your toppings. Continue cooking for another three to five minutes with the lid on. If you smell scorching, move your pizza to a cooler part of the grill.
