Making Homemade Pizza 

First, turn on the grill with the Hans pizza grill stone inside. The stone will heat up with the grill while you prepare the pizza. 

Start by stretching the dough out with the back of your hands and pressing the edges out on a lightly floured surface. Once the crust is formed place it on a lightly floured pizza peel.
