Pizza Sauce

Course Dinner
Cuisine American


In a mixing bowl, combine:

  • 8 ounces tomato sauce
  • 2 tablespoons tablespoons Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper


  • Once you have the sauce and dough, fire up the grill. Charcoal lends a nice flavor to your pizza, but any grill will do. If using charcoal, be sure to allow enough time for the coals to get nice and hot. A charcoal chimney, available at your local hardware or department store, will speed up the process.

  • Brush both sides of the pizza dough with a light layer of olive oil, place it on the grate, and close the lid. While the dough is cooking, assemble your favorite toppings. Good options include shredded cheese and/or fresh mozzarella (sliced thin), fresh basil, fresh garlic (sliced), onions, kalamata olives, peppers… The sky is the limit. Add whatever you enjoy.
  • Using a pair of tongs, check the underside of the dough. Remove it from the grate when it is golden-brown. A few darker spots and bubbles will add flavor. On a separate plate or cooking sheet, flip the dough so that the cooked side is face-up. Add the sauce and toppings, and return the pizza to the grill until the bottom turns golden brown and the cheese melts. Slice and serve.
