Homemade Pizza On The Grill

Help! My husband has a problem. He loves his grills and we don’t have a back yard. See, our little front balcony (well, thankfully not that little) is home to a gas grill, a charcoal grill, a smoker and 2, yes, 2 pizza grills. PLUS, he informed me he just ordered a second smoker.
