Instructions
  1. Preheat your multi-burner gas barbecue to high and close the cover. If you have a thermometer, get the temperature up to about 550 F.

  6. Spoon the olive oil onto the two Greek pizzas and spread evenly on the bread right to the edges. Season with salt and pepper
  7. Evenly distribute the appropriate topping ingredients to each of the pizzas. Leave the cheese for last and sprinkle on top.
  8. Reduce the temperature to low on the barbecue burner(s) where you’ll place the cookie sheets and leave the other(s) on high to maintain a temperature above 450 F.

  9. Place the pizzas in the barbecue on the sheets and close the cover.
  10. Cook for about 7 to 10 minutes, depending on the temperature. Check after about 5 minutes to make sure the underside of the bread is not burning. Turn off the burner(s) directly below the tray if they are starting to burn the bread. They are done when the bread is slightly crisp, lightly toasted on the bottom and the cheese is bubbling.
