Recipe Tips

  • Grilling Pizza – Allow the flatbread to heat on the grill before adding the toppings. This creates a crispy and delicious base.
  • Prepare Grill – Make sure to oil and heat grill prior to putting the flatbread pizza on the grill.
  • Pizza Night – When we make these flatbread pizzas, I like to prepare all the pizza toppings in advance. This make it easy to add your favorite toppings once the flatbread has been heated on the grill.
  • Cook Time – Cook time may vary once you add the toppings. If you add a lot of cheese or like it a little burnt on top, it could take longer to grill.
  • Allow Pizza to Rest – Once you have removed the pizza from the grill, allow it to rest for about 5 minutes.

How long to Cook Flatbread Pizza on the Grill:

Grilling Flatbread Pizzas is a quick and easy dinner idea. We recommend placing the flatbread on the grill before adding toppings. This gives the flatbread the perfect grill marks and a crispy texture on both sides.

After about 3 minutes remove the flatbread and add your favorite toppings. Then place the flatbread back on the grill, close the lid and allow the cheese to melt. In about 5 minutes your pizza will be done and ready to serve.

Cooking process may vary based on what dough you use and the type of grill you have.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is Flatbread dough the same as Pizza dough?

They are similar but flatbread tends to be more thinner and once cooked have a crispier texture.

What temperature should I grill the pizza on?

We recommend heating the grill to medium heat. If you are using a gas grill, I would wait until it reaches 350 degrees before grilling.

How to Reheat Leftover Pizza?

Leftover pizza is based to be heated in the oven or back on the grill. You can even air fry the leftovers. Microwaving pizza does not give the crispy crust once it has been reheated.
