The answer is “yes”, you *can* grill a perfect homemade pizza on your outdoor gas grill using everyday non-perishable items in your pantry. We’re getting ready for hurricane season here in Baton Rouge and wanted to do a test run in case we lost power. We call it a hurricane pizza and it turned out awesome!

Make Your Own Homemade “Hurricane” Pizza Dough


Recipe type: Entree
Cuisine: Italian/American
Yields: 4 Servings
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon brewer’s yeast
  • 1 cup water (room-temperature)
  • 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons salt
And here’s how you make it:
  1. Sprinkle some flour around on the table
  2. Place the flour in a pile in the middle of it
  3. Make a well/hole in the middle of your pile of flour and pour a little water in there
  4. Add the yeast
  5. Blend flour (little by little) and add the remaining water (again, little by little)
  6. After everything is combined, add the olive oil and salt (little by little)
  7. Knead the dough for a couple of minutes (Dough is ready when it it is smooth and elastic)
  8. Add some flour to a bowl, add the dough, cover with a cloth and let rest for 4 hours.
  9. Punch it out and roll out dough to size/shape of your pizza pan, top with sauce and favorite toppings.
  10. Cook pizza in 400 degree pre-heated gas grill for 15 minutes or until cheese is melted completely.
Since gas grill temperatures can vary greatly, keep a close eye on it after 10 minutes to prevent over cooking your hurricane pizza. I’ve always used a pizza pan and have never tried placing dough directly on the grill rack. Seems like you’re asking for a mess that way…just sayin’.
