Grilled BBQ Chicken Pizza!

Updated: Jun 12, 2020


Grilling is one of my favorite things about summer time. I love everything from the smell of the grill to the ease of clean up. This past week I had left over rotisserie chicken and a bbq craving. Instead of my usual bbq grilled chicken, I decided to created something new.


This recipe is so simple and delicious and my husband absolutely loved it!





Step 1: Pizza dough


Homemade pizza dough

  • I love to bake breads, so I make most of my doughs, buns, bagels etc from scratch. You can always buy the pre-made dough from the store, but if you want to give homemade pizza dough a whirl, here is the recipe!

Equipment

Ingredients




Instructions

  • Put warm water into a large mixing bowl.

  • Add sugar and yeast and stir to combine.

  • Let mixture sit for 5 minutes, or until it becomes frothy and bubbles form.

  • Add olive oil and gently stir to combine.

  • Add 2 cups of flour and salt and mix with a spatula until a ball begins to form (dough will still be slightly sticky). Add more flour as needed to form a dough ball.

  • Transfer to a floured surface and knead into a smooth dough, adding up to ½ cup extra flour if needed.

  • Roll dough into your desired shape and gently transfer to your prepared pan. 

  • To ensure the dough doesn't form air pockets, use a fork to prick to the dough all around (gently so you do not poke holes all the way through the crust).

Step 2: Heat up the stone


If you have a pizza stone, place it on the grill at ~500 degrees F. Once the grill is heated for about 5-10 minutes put the dough on the stone for a quick 6 minute "pre-bake" this will ensure your dough is all the way cooked through when it's time to eat without your toppings being burnt.


I always add corn meal to the bottom of my pizza dough so it doesn't stick to the stone. It isn't necessary, but I find it works well!


If you do not have a pizza stone, I recommend using a pan that is made for the grill. If you don't want to grill your pizza you can use your oven. Preheat it to 450 degrees F with the stone or pan inside. Once your oven is preheated, "pre-bake" your dough for 10-15 minutes.



Step 3: Topping your pizza!



Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup BBQ Sauce

  • 2 cloves minced garlic

  • 1/4 red onion chopped

  • 1/3 cup baked chicken

  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Optional: Cilantro for garnish

We added tomatoes and mushrooms for extra veggies!


Instructions

  • Mix together the bbq sauce and minced garlic and spread evenly over the pizza crust

  • Evenly spread red onion and chicken over the pizza crust

  • Top with the shredded cheddar cheese

  • As noted previously we also topped ours with tomatoes and mushrooms

  • Place pizza back on the grill for 15-20 minutes or until the cheese is melted and bubbly

  • Take the pizza off an add the cilantro garnish

Cut into slices and enjoy!






Whenever I eat pizza I almost always add a vegetable on the side and eat it first. This beneficial for two reasons. 1. I am eating extra nutritious foods and 2. I am likely to only eat 2 slices of pizza because I have filled up on vegetables.


For this meal I made a simple summer salad. Here are the ingredients


  • mixed spring lettuce

  • sliced mango

  • sliced blueberries

  • tangerine slices

  • goat cheese

  • walnuts
