Grilled Focaccia with Herbs and Garlic

This is easy and awesome.  Make your own dough if you have time or use a ball of frozen dough from the grocery store.  Enjoy it now while the weather's hot and the herbs are coming into full production.

1 batch pizza dough
Olive oil
1/2 cup chopped fresh basil and parsley
4 cloves garlic, minced

Pat the dough out to about 1/2-inch thick, maybe a little less.  Oil both sides liberally and set aside on a plate.

In a bowl, combine the chopped herbs and garlic with about 2 Tbsp olive oil and set aside.

Get your grill going pretty hot, then carefully transfer the dough from the plate to the grill.  Close the cover and grill for about 3 minutes.  Use tongs to flip the focaccia over and quickly spread the cooked side with the garlic and herb mixture.  Close the grill lid again and cook for about 2 minutes more.  Remove from the grill.

Let the focaccia cool enough to handle, then tear or cut into pieces and serve.

Serves 4-6.
