8 ounces fresh mozzarella, thinly sliced
12 fresh basil leaves, chiffanade
2 small plum tomatoes, thinly sliced

  1. Bring the dough to room temperature.
  2. Preheat an outdoor grill to medium heat and place the stone pizza grill on and close.
  3. Dust pizza peel and dough with corn meal and dust your hands and dough with flour.
  4. Give the pizza peel a shake before adding the toppings to make sure it hasn't stuck to the peel.
  5. To the dough add cheese, tomatoes, basil, and season with salt and drizzle with olive oil.
  6. Let the pizza grill undisturbed for 4 minutes and then check the bottom and grill for about 4 minutes longer.
