Preparation Directions:

Wash All Vegetables prior to use
Clean and sanitize all cutting boards and prep surfaces prior to use
Read all manufacturer’s instructions before using grills or any cooking tools
Pull pizza dough from fridge and allow to proof on counter for 1-2 hours or until dough reaches room temp
Pre-cook sausage until fully cooked, cool and slice into long bias cut slices
Clean Weber Grill Grates and ignite Weber, adjust temp to 475˚ - 500˚ - cooking direct
Add Weber Pizza Stone to the center of the grill while heating up. Allow 20 minutes for stone to heat fully
While grill is heating up – prep pizza as follows (build quickly to avoid dough getting wet and sticking to the pizza peel)
Pizza Peel – lightly dust with all-purpose flour
Dough – Hand stretch to 12” diameter
Add Pizza sauce and spread to edges of pizza
Add Cheese and spread evenly to cover the sauce
Add sausage and arrange in a thin layer
Add the mini peppers and arrange in a thin layer
Top with shredded parmesan cheese
Carefully shake the pizza peel to ensure the pizza dough is loose and not stuck
          ** If stuck, carefully lift dough in stuck areas and lightly flour under dough
Slide onto the pizza stone and grill for 10-15 minutes or until desired doneness is reached
Check for doneness of pizza at the 10 minute mark and adjust grill temp if pizza is cooking unevenly or too fast
Catch pizza on the pizza peel when done and transfer to a cutting board
Allow to sit for 2 minutes for cheese to firm up
Slice into 6-8 slices
Garnish with Sliced Basil and Fishy Fishy Herb Rub
Drizzle with Fire Honey for a Colorado Kick
