For those of you who read my posts regularly, I’m sure you’ve figured out by now that I love to grill! I will attempt to grill everything! One of my favorite things to make on the grill is pizza and bread. Grilled pizza has become quite popular over the last few years and with good reason…it tastes great! So here is a really quick and easy meal that everyone will love. Typically this is one of the meals I throw together when I have leftover chicken, but you can always cook your chicken right before making the pizza. If you’ve read how to make grilled pizza you may have been told to oil your dough, but that is actually not necessary. I usually always oil my grill grates because it does help prevent foods from sticking but it also keeps the grates in better condition, however this is also not necessary for pizza. Once the dough firms up it will come right off the grate with no problems. I never measure my ingredients for this so although I’ve included measurements for each ingredient in the recipe ultimately you can just put the toppings on to your own preference.
Grilled Barbecue Chicken Pizza
1 Pizza Dough (homemade or store bought is fine)
1 cup Barbecue Sauce
1 cup Mozzarella Cheese
1 cup Cheddar Cheese
2 slices of cooked bacon
1/2 cup cooked chicken, shredded
1/4 cup chopped red onions
Preheat grill to medium heat.
Divide dough into four and flatten using a rolling pin or your hands.
Place each piece of dough on the grill for 3 minutes over direct heat.
Remove the dough from the grill to add toppings. On the cooked side of the dough, place about 1/4 cup of barbecue sauce, 1 tbsp. onions, 2 tbsp. of shredded chicken over each piece of dough. Crumble the bacon over the pizzas and add the cheese (about 1/4 cup of Mozzarella & 1/4 cup of cheddar on each pizza).
Return the dough to the grill uncooked side down and allow to cook for another 2-3 minutes over direct heat. Then continue to cook the pizzas over indirect heat until the toppings are heated through and the cheese is melted.
Cut into slices or squares and serve!
