Grilling With Your Pizza Stone

Grilling-pizza-stone-olde-town-spice-shoppeCan you grill pizza? You bet you can!!

A fun summer way to make a family favorite on your backyard grill. Using your Pizza Stone on your grill will impart a smokey effect on your delicious toppings and provide a perfect crispy bottom.


The key to using your pizza stone is always allowing it to warm up with its cooking device, whether on the grill or in your oven.

To Use on your grill:
Insert pizza stone onto your grill, close the cover, and preheat over medium flames. You should start the grill heating when your dough has doubled in size before you start rolling out the crust. This will save time, and you don’t want your toppings sitting on the uncooked crust for an extended period of time, or it will go soggy.

You don’t have to use homemade crust (but really there are so many super easy recipes out there) you can also use store-bought naan bread, a much quicker dinner option, just be sure to brush with olive oil for a nice crispy bottom.

Prepare your crust recipe and when ready to shape out the crust,
Place the crust on a well-floured moveable, slick cutting board or onto a well-floured large pizza spatula– this will help you to transfer the pizza to a hot pizza stone once it is topped. It’s very important to flour the moveable surface well so that the crust doesn’t stick when you transfer it!

Quickly top your shaped crust, make sure to not overload the pizza with toppings, it will result in a soggy finish. Brush the exposed crust with olive oil and you can always sprinkle some flavors around the edges. Try using our Garlic Bread Sprinkle, our Pizza Topper, or our Pizza Sprinkle.

Once the stone and grill are all heated, slide your assembled pizza directly onto the pizza stone. This can be tricky; you may need the help of another small spatula to guide the crust onto the heated stone. Having a well-floured surface will help it slide with ease. Close the grill cover.

Grill the pizza for 10-12 minutes, or to the desired doneness. Best to grill until the outer edges are golden brown all the way around the crust.
