Grilled BBQ Chicken Pizza

Hello Friends!
Hope you all are having a great week. Over at our place, we have been going head over heels for our charcoal grill! Everything we make has been on this thing–including these individual pizzas. Wow, are they good! My husband and I were skeptical at first because we’ve never done anything like it before. Well, after we threw the first one on we knew we were witnessing something delicious in the making! The crust puffed up and then once we flipped it over and topped it with the chicken and cheese, we were drooling! We couldn’t get them off the grill and into our mouths fast enough! Seriously–amazingly good. So good that we’ll be making them again for dinner tomorrow night!

Now, don’t think you can’t do this because you can. Dare I say it’s easy{?!} The hardest part is making the dough and making sure you don’t kill the yeast. After that, it’s so easy a monkey could do it. Divide your dough into 4, roll them out to be about 1/4 inch thick and place them on the grill. Turn once they get grill marks and start to get all puffy. Onto the cooked side, add your toppings, cover, and let the cheese melt. Remove, cut and serve! THAT’S IT! See! Easy!

Wouldn’t this be such a fun dinner party idea? Let everyone grill their own pizza with their own toppings they want! It’s easy for the host and fun for the guests!

Before Autumn is completely upon us with those chilly nights, make sure you make these at least once! You won’t be sorry!

Ingredients:
1 lb. pizza dough
1 cup good quality BBQ sauce (such as KC Masterpiece)
1/2 onion, sliced thinly
1 lb. chicken, cooked and shredded
1 1/2 cups grated mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
ranch or blue cheese dressing for dipping (if you’re into that kind of thing)

Directions:
Preheat BBQ grill to medium high heat. In large bowl, mix half BBQ sauce with shredded chicken until coated. Set aside. Divide pizza dough into 4 equal portions and roll into rounds about 1/4 inch thick. Place on baking sheet until ready to cook.
Place pizza dough onto hot, greased grill. Cover and cook about 2 minutes or until grill marks are visible and dough has puffed up slightly. Turn pizzas and top with remaining BBQ sauce, chicken, onions and cheese. Reduce heat to low and cover. Cook until cheese is melted and bottom crust is cooked, 2-5 minutes. Remove from grill and top with cilantro. Serve with more BBQ sauce, ranch and/or blue cheese dressing.

For homemade Pizza Dough:
My pizza dough recipe is pretty easy! In large bowl, combine 1 cup hot water with 2 1/4 teaspoons quick rising yeast (1 packet) and 1 teaspoon sugar or honey. Proof yeast 5 minutes. Stir in 2 tablespoons olive oil, 2 1/2 teaspoons salt and 2 1/2-3 cups all purpose flour (start with 2 cups and work your way up). Knead dough 5 minutes. It should be slightly sticky and smooth. Coat in olive oil and cover with plastic wrap. Place in a warm spot in your kitchen and let dough rise 1-1 1/2 hours until doubled in size. Use as desired.

    I bought a yummy BBQ chicken pizza the other day. Now I should try it at home. I'm sure it's even better.
