Ingredients

Units Scale

Ingredients:

  • 16 ounce Pizza Dough
  • 1 Tablespoon Semolina flour
  • 1 Tablespoon garlic olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoon freshly shredded parmesan cheese
  • 1 handful fresh baby spinach
  • 1 quarter of a red onion
  • 1 ounce fresh mozzarella
  • 10 Greek olives
  • 2 Tablespoons Feta cheese
  • 1 pinch Red Pepper Flakes
  • 2 Tablespoons shredded mozzarella

Instructions

Thinly slice a quarter of a red onion. Slice the Greek olives into halves. Shred the regular mozzarella cheese.

Spread a little semolina flour on a counter, and roll out pizza dough. Transfer to a pizza peel that has been dusted with semolina flour.

Place a couple of large pieces of foil on the counter, and pour Western BBQ Cherry Wood Chips into the center. Fold over to form a pouch, and roll up the edges on each side. Now, using a sharp knife, poke a few holes in the foil.

Turn on gas grill and add one of the packets of wood chips to the grill.

Brush dough with garlic olive oil. Add pecorino, then the baby spinach. Add some of the red onion slices. Now, using your fingers pull apart the mozzarella into smaller pieces and dot over the pizza. Add the sliced olives. Top with crumbled feta cheese, red pepper flakes and just a small amount of shredded mozzarella.

At this point , wood should be smoking. Place a pizza stone on the grill, and allow to heat up. About 4 minutes. Now, slide the pizza onto the pizza stone. Close the lid, and set a timer for 3 minutes. Check pizza by using a metal spatula to check the crust underneath, slightly turning the pizza on the stone. Continue to set timer for 3 minute intervals, changing to 2 minutes as pizza gets closer to done.

As smoke slows down, add the 2nd pouch, till it starts to smoke. When the crust has browned underneath, and the cheese is melty, the pizza is ready to bring off the heat. You want to make sure the crust is a medium to darker brown for a crispy crust.

Slice the pizza and serve! You can continue to make additional pizzas! Just be sure to add more smoking chips!
