Crave-Worthy Grilled Veggie Pizza

Following a number of botched pizza dough recipes in my time, I have come to one simple conclusion: Once you master the art of making pizza dough, then you have mastered the art of making pizza.

Although I have the art of making the perfect pizza dough down to the T, using the instant yeast recipe, I am still getting into the habit of measuring things. In this Grilled Veggie Pizza, I have tried to write my step by step guide as accurately as I remember.


1 cup of flour (for 2 large pizza’s)
1 tbsp of instant yeast
A handful of chopped chives
1 tbsp sugar
1 cup of warm water
1/8 cup of olive oil
½ cup of homemade pizza sauce (you can use store bought)
250g-mozzarella cheese
1 large red pepper
Half a cup of corn
2 leeks, sliced
2 cloves of garlic sliced
250g-cheddar cheese


Place the warm water in a bowl or jug. Add in the yeast and sugar, stir and leave for 10 mins or till the mixture starts to froth. Picture 


In a separate bowl, pour in the flour, add the chives and create a hole in the centre like shown below.


Add the frothy liquid and half of the olive oil into the centre hole. Then use a spatula or wooden spoon to fold in the flour till a dough is formed.

Kneed the dough on a flat floured surface (not too much). Form a ball with your dough and coat it in the remaining olive oil.

Next place it in a bowl and cover with a slightly damp cloth. Then leave it in a warm place to rise for about 30-60 minutes. It should double in size.

Pre-heat the oven to 200 degrees C.


Once the dough has risen, give it a quick knead and roll it out on a floured surface into whatever shape you please. Round is the preferred shape but I prefer oval.

Oil your grill rack  and place your dough directly on and into the oven for 10 minutes or till the top side is brown.
Remove from oven, flip it, and smooth the pasta sauce over the unbaked side with the back of a spoon.

Add the mozzarella cheese first then scatter the veggie ingredients and top with cheddar cheese.


Place in the oven for another 10 minutes or till the cheese bubbles.

When your pizza is ready, remove and slice immediately.

Top with avocado slices (optional).

Enjoy as you watch an old classic movie.
