Papa Murphy’s will showed us how to grill pizza!

GAS GRILL INSTRUCTIONS 

Grill surface should be at least 16” x 16”

1. For 2 burner grills, light both burners and pre-heat to 375°–400°F (190°–200°C). For grills with 3 or more burners, pre-heat to 425°– 450°F (220°–235°C) and light outer burners only. To confirm temperature use an oven thermometer. Grill should be held at desired temperature for 15 minutes prior to baking.

2. Remove plastic wrap. Put pizza and tray on heat-shielding surface. Place in the center of the grill surface and close lid. Note that if you have a thermometer in the lid of the grill, it will no longer read the correct temperature. Temperature should not be adjusted once grill is preheated.

3. Bake for approximately 20-30 minutes. Do not leave grill unattended. Check pizza frequently by lifting crust with a spatula. Turn pizza 1/4 turn every 5 minutes… turn it, don’t burn it! Baking times may vary.

4. Use oven mitts to remove pizza and heat shield from grill. Let stand 5 minutes. Remove pizza and tray from heat-shielding surface. Cut and serve.

CHARCOAL GRILL INSTRUCTIONS

Once coals are ready, divide evenly and pile on two sides of fire grate (distribute on all 4 sides for square grills), then put the grilling surface on grill. Never put coals directly under pizza.
