Grilled Strawberry Pizza Recipe

A few weeks ago, my husband and I hosted his grandmother's 71st birthday party at our house. Going with a simple menu of grilled pizza, there was little cooking to be done and most of the mess stayed outside. I used our favorite pizza dough recipe, rolled out individual pizzas, and let everyone choose their own toppings. So easy...

For dessert, we had some dough left over and my husband threw together this dessert, turning out to be one of the most amazing things I've ever eaten!

Grilled Strawberry Pizza
1 pizza dough recipe (below)
2 strawberries, sliced thin
2 Tbs strawberry jam

Crumb Topping
2 Tbs. butter
1/4c. brown sugar
3 Tbs. flour
3 Tbs. rolled oats
1/8 tsp cinnamon
pinch of salt

First, you will make the crumb topping. Combine all of the ingredients, except for the butter, in a small mixing bowl. Cut in the cold butter with a pastry blender, or fork, until it resembles coarse crumbs. Set aside.

Take one precooked miniature pizza and add the jam, then sliced strawberries. Top with the oatmeal crumble mixture and return to the grill for a few more minutes. After it has cooled slightly, drizzle with icing if desired. Serve warm!

Pizza Dough Recipe
1 Tbs. active dry yeast
1 c. warm water 105-115°F
1 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. salt
2 Tbs. olive oil
2 1/2c. flour

1. Dissolve yeast in the water. Set aside.

2. Combine all other ingredients into the bowl of an electric mixer.

3. Add yeast and water and combine. Mix with dough hook approx. 5 mins, until dough is smooth and pulls from side of bowl.

4. Roll the dough onto a floured surface. Press into a floured pan and bake for 12-15 mins at 450°.

5. If grilling, roll the dough very thin and place onto a well floured board. Transfer to grill.


  1. one of my favorite restaurants sells something like this, but they use nutella underneath the strawberries & top with powdered sugar. YUM!

  2. What a fun recipe!--it looks so good that I think my family might even eat it, even with it being covered in fruit (we're working hard on the fruits and veggies thing--little boys just aren't a fan).

    P.S. Since I just am loving your blog so much, I have awarded you the "Versatile Blogger Award". Please stop by my blog to snatch it up and wear it proud on your blog! You deserve it! Congrats!
