How To Grill The Best Frozen Pizza

  1. Preheat the grill until it reaches 375 degrees. Make sure the grates are clear and clean.
  2. Unwrap the frozen pizza. Discard and cardboard and plastic.
  3. Place the frozen pizza directly in the center of the grill. Close the lid and cook 15 minutes or until slightly golden around the edges and heated through.
  4. Serve immediately.

Tips to Grill a Frozen Pizza

  • This recipe is perfect for either a gas grill but also makes delicious frozen pizza on traeger or pellet grill!
  • Make sure the grill has been properly cleaned.
  • Keep the lid closed while the pizza cooks. This helps to keep the heat in and gives you an even bake.
  • Cooking at 375 gives you a crisp crust but helps avoid burning. It is perfect.
What Is The Best Frozen Pizza To Grill?

We used a Kroger brand pizza, which is super tasty, but a close second is the Digiorno thin crust. You can really grill any frozen pizza! We try to stick with whatever is on sale. Cooking times may vary based on the pizza thickness or brand. I recommend checking your pie every 7 minutes or so.
Side note, if you have a Papa Murphy’s in the area… Their pizza tastes AMAZING grilled this way. Especially their thin crust.

How To Upgrade A Frozen Pizza

Want to spice up your traeger frozen pizza? Try a few of these easy tips to upgrade.
Season the crust! We like to brush with melted garlic butter or parmesan cheese. You can also try everything bagel seasoning or miced garlic!
In fact, try seasoning the entire pizza! Add a pinch of garlic salt or Italian seasoning.
Include some fresh toppings. Adding fresh veggies, cheese, or even meats can kick things up to a new level!
