700-g pkg
whole-wheat pizza dough
1/4 cup
213-mL can
2 250-g pkgs
fresh mozzarella, sliced into 1/8 inch rounds
8 slices
prosciutto, about 130 g, thinly sliced
1 cup
coarsely chopped fresh basil


  • Preheat one side of the barbecue to medium-high. Leave other side unheated.
  • Divide pizza dough evenly into 6 pieces. Roll each piece on a lightly floured counter into a 6-in. circle about 1/8 in. thick. Brush about 1 tsp of oil on one side of each piece, making sure to cover the entire surface. Carefully place pieces of dough, oil-side down, on heated grill. Brush remaining oil over the tops of the pizzas. Grill until dough starts to puff up and grill marks appear on the undersides, 3 to 4 min. Using tongs, flip the crusts over and continue grilling until dough firms up, 2 to 3 min. Transfer to unheated side of grill. Spread 2 tbsp pizza sauce over each crust. Divide cheese among crusts. Grill, covered, over indirect heat, rotating and switching pizzas halfway through, until cheese is melted and undersides are dark golden, 9 to 12 min. Remove from grill. Sprinkle prosciutto and basil overtop just before serving.

Quick and easy to make, this barbecue version rivals delivery in speed and is better in flavour.
