Par-Baked Pizza Crust

Our favorite strategy for goof-proof grilled pizza is to partially bake the crust in the oven. Add your favorite toppings, then finish your creation on the grill for flame-kissed flavor minus the angst that comes from transferring raw dough to the grill or having it sag between the grates. After rising, the dough can be wrapped in plastic and stored in the refrigerator for up to 2 days; bring it to room temperature before rolling. Par-baked crusts can be wrapped in plastic and refrigerated for up to 3 days or frozen for up to a month. Bring back to room temperature before grilling.
