Who knew that THIS bread is what was missing from your BBQ all along.
Every BBQ has the obligatory foods. For some, it’s hot dogs and burgers, for others it’s steak and chicken. But you know what’s missing from all these BBQs? Fresh hot piping bread (supermarket buns don’t really fit into that category)…the kind that you can tear with your hands, that’s fluffy, and light with the grill char on the outside.
What if I told you you can easily make it in under 5 minutes?
Use premade pizza dough, either your own, or from your freezer section. Note that you cannot use pre-made dough from your pizza shop for this purpose (as we’ll be using our grill).
Preheat grill to 475-500F.
Divide a 1 lb dough into 4-6 pieces.
Make sure the strips aren’t too long and narrow or you’ll end up with 1 foot our health long grilled flatbread.
On a lightly floured surface, stretch each dough piece out as evenly as possible.
Don’t use a rolling pin to stretch out the dough. Use your hands so that it’s light and airy when you grill it. Don’t reroll the dough once you stretch it out. If you do, then you need to let the dough rest 20-30 minutes before stretching it out again.
Place the dough on the grill. Close lid for 1 minute.
Open lid, flip the dough over with tongs. Close lid and bake an additional 45 seconds. Some grills need another 10 seconds. Watch carefully as it can burn.
Serve with your favorite BBQ foods, enjoy with chummus, or turn it into a salad flatbread.
