  • This recipe begins after you have pizza dough and pesto at hand.
  • Turn your outdoor grill on high and clean as needed.
  • Toss the arugula with a small amount of olive oil, salt and pepper and set aside.
  • Roll out the pizza dough to your designed size and thickness and transfer it to a well greased piece of aluminum foil or cookie sheet.
  • Brush olive oil on one side of the dough.
  • When the grill registers between 500-550 degrees, transfer the pizza dough to the grill, olive oil side down on the grill. Brush the second side of the dough with olive oil and close the lid.
  • After 2-3 minutes, flip the dough over and quickly add the pesto sauce, Roma tomatoes and mozzarella balls. Shut the lid and let cook for 5-7 minutes. Each grill is different, so watch it carefully!
  • Once the toppings are hot and the cheese is melted, remove the pizza from the grill.
  • Remove from the grill and let it sit for 2-3 minutes.
  • Add the arugula to the top of the pizza.
  • Enjoy immediately!
