Pizzas and calzones grilled on a pizza stone should have a crisp, flavorful, golden brown crust. We have found success with both homemade and store-bought dough. We encourage you try different kinds of dough until your find your favorite.
Many store-bought pizza dough products are quite tasty, convenient to use and moderately priced. Most grocery stores offer fresh or frozen dough balls, often found in the produce or deli sections. Pre-made packaged pizza crusts, like the Boboli Thin Crust round, turned out well during our testing. Be cautious of any dough that is quite thin, like the Pillsbury refrigerated tube crusts. While they may work well in a 425° oven, they could not withstand the high heat of the grill and during our tests, burned before the toppings were heated through and the cheese melted.
