  1. Preheat the grill to 400 degrees F. Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the onions and cook until just translucent, about 2 minutes, Add in the chile , garlic and the garam masala , stirring constantly for a minute or so until the mixture becomes fragrant. Add the tomatoes and cook until the tomatoes have softened slightly, about 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and transfer to a bowl. Stir in the lime juice and cilantro. Season with salt and pepper, to taste, and mix until well combined. Reserve. Cut the dough into 2 (8-ounce) pieces. Stretch the dough out on a lightly floured surface with your hands. When topping is ready and grill is at a consistent 400 to 450 degrees F (no hotter than 450), lightly brush the grill with olive oil. Place dough directly onto the grill surface. Close the grill cover and cook for 4 to 5 minutes. About 2 minutes in, open the grill and pop the air bubbles with a fork. The bottom should be brown with some charred spots but not burned or underdone. Close lid and continue cooking. Remove from grill and place on a work surface with the cooked/grilled side up. Lower the heat on the grill to medium-low so that the cheese has time to melt and the bottom does not burn. Spread half of the tomato mixture on each pizza , then evenly divide the cheese over the tomato mixture. Lightly oil the grill once more and carefully place the pizzas, tomato/ cheese side up, onto the grill. Close the lid and let it cook slowly for another 5 to 10 minutes to allow the cheese to melt and so that the bottom does not burn. When the cheese is completely melted and the bottom is a nice even brown with some charred spots, remove from the grill to a cutting board, slice and serve.
