Grill it!

One of our families favorite things to grill is Pizza.

There is nothing like a grilled pizza, all the smokiness from the grill soaks into the dough and gives it an extra punch of flavor. It is absolutely to die for.

Ingredients


Instructions

  1. Make Whole Wheat Pizza Dough.
  2. Preheat grill to medium high heat.
  3. Season 1 chicken breasts.
  4. Grill each chicken breast for 5-6 minutes each side, dice up when done.Set aside.
  5. Sprinkle flat surface (countertop) with whole wheat flour, place pre-made wheat dough on surface and roll out to desired size.
  6. Spray grill surface with PAM or wipe down with olive oil.
  7. Place formed pizza dough on grill. Once dough begins to form bubbles it is time to flip, about 4-5 minutes.
  8. Immediately after flipping the pizza put on the “goodies”: spread the pesto, add about a Tablespoon of cheese (it helps everything stick together), then the diced chicken, julienned red peppers, and the rest of the cheese.
  9. Close the grill cover and let pizza cook for another 5-6 minutes or until cheese is completely melted.

    1. Hey Meredith! I hope it warms up on your end too. I use to live in Wisconsin and can remember counting down the days until “grilling season”, that and the day to finally put the shovel away. 🙂
      Thanks so much for the nomination, what an honor. You rock!

  1. Grilled pesto pizza has been on my must-make list for this summer and seeing you NAIL it so awesomely just convinced me! This pizza looks ah-MAZING Krista! Next time I make pizza I’m so putting it on the grill. 🙂 Pinned!

    1. Oh for sure you need to throw it on the grill. I first tried it 2 years ago and have never looked back, gives such a better taste to the pizza. Hope you like it Sarah!
