Pizza is always a good choice. But even better than delivery is a pizza cooked in your Primo Ceramic Grill, at home! Something about that slow cooked flavor gives pizza a whole new taste! Try this recipe (brought to you by Primo) for your next pizza party! 


Pizza Sauce

Parmesan Cheese

Fresh Oregano


Pizza Dough (use recipe found here:

Mozzarella Cheese

Fresh Basil

Olive Oil

Desired Toppings 


Set Grill for direct cooking (no heat deflector plates) and heat to 400 degrees (f) / 200 (c) with primo pizza stone directly on grill.


Sprinkle Semolina on pizza board or large cutting board. Place pizza dough on the board. Brush top of pizza dough with a bit of olive oil. Spread desired amount on pizza sauce on the pizza dough. Chop up basil and oregano and spread on top of pizza sauce. Spread desired amount of mozzarella cheese on top of pizza and add toppings. Lastly finely grate parmesan cheese on pizza.


Sprinkle some semolina on the Primo Pizza Stone. Slide the pizza onto the stone and close the grill. Cook for approximately 10 minutes or until golden brown on the bottom of the pizza. Check pizza every after 5 minutes and then every couple of minutes to check when it is done. When checking use pizza board or pizza spatula to lift up pizza to check the bottom. 


Add some chunks of hickory and mesquite wood when lighting the grill to get a great wood fired taste. Place pizza stone on the grill while it is warming once the grill is about 300 (f) / 150 (c). If the semolina goes burnt right when you sprinkle it on the pizza stone the stone is too hot to cook on and you need to take the stone off (use pot holders) and back off the temperature of the grill. Put the stone back on the grill for 5 minutes and sprinkle with semolina again.
Semolina can be a challenge to find as not all grocery stores carry it, but we have it at our local Coles store and you’ll find it by checking at a few of your local stores.

Making your own pizza sauce can be fun and tasty but we use Leggo’s Pizza Sauce (with Garlic Onion and Herbs) and find it makes the process much easier and is very tasty.
