I love pizza – especially on the grill. There is something amazing that happens when you add the smoke of the BBQ to homemade pizza. When the weather gets hot, this is the way we make pizza at my house. I start with my homemade pizza crust (recipe here) and let everyone choose what toppings they want – it turns ordinary pizza night to an outdoor party! This combination is one of my favorites (I’ve written about my other favorite pizza here) – sweet and spicy BBQ sauce, crisp green peppers, onions, sweet pineapple and finished with 2 cheeses. Yummy!
The following is the method rather than exact amounts. Add as much or as little of the below ingredients as you like!
Grilled BBQ Chicken Pizza With Pineapple
1 recipe pizza dough
1/2 chicken breast, grilled and sliced thin
1/4 green pepper, sliced thin
1/2 small onion, sliced thin
1/4 cup chopped pineapple
1/4 – 1/2 cup BBQ sauce – homemade or your favorite kind
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
After the first rising of the dough – spread out on lightly greased double layer of aluminum foil. Add BBQ sauce, pepper, onion, chicken and pineapple. Grill over low heat until crust is crisp on the bottom and vegetables just begin to soften. Top with cheese and grill until cheese is melted and pizza is cooked through. Slice and serve!
The thing I love most about pizza (besides the taste!) is that it’s a great way to use up leftovers. You can make just about anything into a pizza – your only limited by your imagination! It’s also much more affordable to make your own specialty pizza – especially when you use what you have on hand.
