Grilled Barbecue Chicken Pizza

There is just something about the weekend and pizza. I'm obsessed with my little grill lately and had some dough left in my freezer so I decided to make a California original. I have tons of grilled chicken and I used a bottled sauce so this recipe came together super fast which was good because I was starving! I'm not including measurements so you adapt it to your own tastes.

Barbecue Chicken Pizza

Store-bought pizza dough
Grilled chicken, chopped
Red onion, thinly sliced
Shredded mozzarella
Bottled barbecue sauce
Olive oil or garlic oil for brushing
Cilantro, roughly chopped for garnish (optional)

On a lightly floured board roll out dough to desired thin-ness. Brush one side of the dough with olive oil and place the oiled side of the dough onto a hot grill. Grill for one minute and flip.

Spoon barbecue sauce on top of the pizza and spread the cheese over the sauce. Top with onions, chicken, and more cheese. Close the cover of the grill and cook for 4-5 minutes until the cheese is melted and the toppings are warmed through. Remove the pizza from the grill and garnish with cilantro if desired.

Esi I am so with you on this BBQ pizza and grilling. It really is so very easy and so very tasty. I love BBQ sauce with the chicken and the cheese and put it on some grilled bread. I like your thinking.

This looks so delicious and easy, Esi. (Hey! :) ) I like that you did the recipe without ingredient amounts - it lets people make the little changes they want without feeling all tied in to a formal recipe. And that's good. Thanks!
