Bread Dough on the Grill

Yes you can bake bread dough on an outdoor grill.
It bakes up nice with grill marks and smoky flavor.
Sometimes it puffs up like pita pocket bread.
It's great for dipping into a marinara sauce.
Add sauce cheese and toppings for making pizza.

1 pound fresh bread dough
Olive oil cooking spray
Tomato dipping sauce
Grated parmesan cheese

Let bread dough come to room temperature.
Divide into 8 pieces and flatten into rounds.
Preheat grill to high heat and oil grill grates.

Bake foe about 5 minutes then turn dough
using a flat metal spatula and close grill.
Bake another 5 minutes or until done.

1 can chick peas, drained
1 can black beans, drained
1 small onion, diced
1 tablespoon mayonnaise
a dash of garlic powder
a dash of dried chives
a dash of ground pepper


Mix all ingredients together, refrigerate leftovers.
