How to Make It

Prepare Homemade Pizza Dough, and grill both sides of rounds according to Our Grilled Pizza Technique (below). Cool crusts 10 minutes. Stir together 3 Tbsp. light brown sugar and 1/8 tsp. ground cinnamon. Cut pineapple into 1/2-inch slices, and spread brown sugar mixture on both sides. Grill, covered with grill lid, 1 minute on each side or until grill marks appear. Stir together softened cream cheese, 3 Tbsp. light brown sugar, and 1/8 tsp. ground cinnamon. Spread about 2 Tbsp. cream cheese mixture on each grilled pizza crust, and top with grilled pineapple slices. Drizzle with warm jarred caramel topping, and sprinkle with toasted pecans and fresh mint.

Preheat grill to high (at least 400°) heat. Slide pizza dough rounds directly onto grill grate (cornmeal side down) from baking sheet, and grill, covered with grill lid, 3 to 4 minutes or until golden brown. Carefully flip dough.

Top cooked side of crust with desired sauce and toppings.

Grill, covered with grill lid, 3 to 4 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbly.
