Spice up your pizza night with this awesome Grilled Chicken Pesto Pizza. Homemade whole wheat pizza dough, crispy grilled chicken and light basil pesto topped with gooey melted cheese. Perfection!




  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.
