A Sweet Pizza Made on the Grill
S’mores, that classic campfire combo of graham crackers, chocolate and marshmallow is adored by young and old alike. Here it is reimagined as a sweet pizza with a drizzle of salted caramel, because, well, more is better! You can use pre-made pizza dough for this Salted Caramel S’Mores Pizza and while the technique of rolling it out in graham cracker crumbs is unusual, it gives it flavor and crunchy texture. The salted caramel can be made or purchased. Make this at the end of your next grilled dinner while you have the covered grill hot and watch people drool. I know that isn’t the most attractive visual, but I’m just warning you that’s what will happen. They bake quickly, so double the recipe and make one after another if you have a larger crowd.
- 8-ounce piece of pizza dough – raised and ready to use (may used purchased dough)
- ¼ cup fine graham cracker crumbs
- 1 ½ cups mini marshmallows
- ⅔ cup semisweet chocolate morsels
- ¼ cup finely chopped pecans (optional)
- 3 tablespoons salted caramel, purchased or homemade
- Have your grill going at a high heat. If you have a temperature gauge, aim for 500°F. Have rack set for indirect heat. Place a 13-inch or larger pizza stone on indirect rack to pre-heat for at least 30 minutes with top of grill closed.
- While stone is preheating, roll out your dough. Scatter half of the graham cracker crumbs on your work surface and pat or roll out dough to a 10-inch diameter. Flip over, sprinkle with remaining crumbs and pat or roll crumbs into the surface of the dough. Transfer dough to preheated pizza stone. Close grill and cook for about 3 to 5 minutes or until bottom of crust is browning. Then, working quickly, scatter about half of the marshmallows, all of the chocolate, all of the nuts (if using), then the remaining marshmallows on top. Close grill and cook for about 3 minutes. Once top crust is browning and topping is bubbling, drizzle caramel over pizza, close grill and cook for another minute or two more. Serve immediately, cut into wedges with a pizza cutter.
