Everyone loves grilling and pizza, but did you know you can have a grilled pizza? That’s right, a pizza fresh off the grill is soon to be your new favorite meal.
Grilled pizza should definitely be added to your camping recipes. To get it right, and have delicious, hassle-free pizzas fresh off the grill, you’re going to need some equipment to help you out. Check out our list below for everything you need for grilled pizza.
Although it’s such a simple accessory, the pizza stone has a big impact. The secret is that the stone heats up completely, so when you place a pizza to cook on the stone, the bottom of the pizza is cooked evenly throughout. What's more, it has a non-stick surface for effortless operation. Simply throw it on the grill, wait for it to get hot, and start cooking. To get grill marks on the bottom of your pizza, remove the pizza from the stone and place it directly on the grill for a minute or two before serving.
An essential tool for cooking pizza, a pizza peel allows you to move hot pizzas around with ease. It's like a giant spatula that allows you to scoop up the whole hot pizza from a hot surface and move it to where you need it to be. It's an essential tool for any pizza-making operation. No pizza party is complete without a pizza peel.

To go from a round pizza to a triangular slice, you need a pizza cutter to make short work of the job. These pizza cutters will easily slice through your perfect pizza crust for clean slices.

If you’ve spent any time grilling, you’ll know that getting your hands too close to the action could result in burns at worst and a few singed finger hairs at best. The thing is, to cook food properly on the grill, you have to get close to the action! To avoid the smell of burnt finger hair, grab a pair of these heat-resistant gloves, and you’ll be able to sling pizzas for hours.
An ash rake is an essential accessory to have if you’re using a wood-fired grill to cook up some wood-fired pizzas. The thing about cooking over fire is that your fire might cook your food unevenly. An ash rake allows you to avoid this problem by redistributing the coals evenly throughout the cooking area. It’s also useful to clean the ash out of the grill when you're done.
No surprises here if you’ve never heard of this tool before. Bubbly pizza dough leads to uneven cooking of your pizza.
