Pizza:

On well-floured surface, roll out dough by hand to fit over 14-inch pizza screen; carefully place on screen. Lightly brush with grill oil, coating completely. Position crust over medium-hot grill; flip, oil side down, onto grill. As crust bubbles, move around with tongs to prevent charring. Lightly brush with grill oil. When bottom of crust is lightly browned and crispy, turn over onto screen (the bottom is now the top). Remove from grill. Brush generously with grill oil; sprinkle with parmesan. In skillet, sauté shrimp with pepper in grill oil. Top grilled crust with pizza sauce, pesto, prepared shrimp, mozzarella, onion, sun-dried tomatoes, capers and garlic. Return to grill; remove screen. Cook about 10 minutes, moving around to prevent charring. Place in broiler 20 to 30 seconds or until top sizzles. Brush edge with grill oil and sprinkle generously with parmesan. Garnish with basil.
