Grilled BBQ Chicken Pizza
The jalepeno peppers were spicy, so if you can't handle the heat, do not add peppers!
  • One Pizza Crust (make your own, or not), mine was from Trader Joe's
  • ¾ cup BBQ sauce (use a little for heating the chicken and garlic, and the remainder is used as your pizza sauce)
  • 1-1½ cups shredded or chopped cooked chicken
  • 1 garlic clove (crushed)
  • 1-1½ cups grated mozzarella cheese
  • 2 TBSP chopped cilantro
  • ¼ med red onion (thinly sliced)
  • ⅓ cup cashews (rough chopped)
  • **Optional: 1-2 TBSP jalepeno pepper (very finely chopped)
  1. Work pizza dough on a floured surface into desired shape and thickness (mine was a thin rectangle). Set aside on olive oil drizzled waxed paper.
  2. Warm chicken in a small amount of BBQ sauce (1/4 cup) along with clove of crushed garlic.
  3. Grate cheese, chop cilantro, finely slice red onion, rough chop cashews, finely dice jalepenos.
  4. Preheat outdoor grill to 500*
  5. Place dough on clean grill grates by picking of dough on waxed paper and flipping onto grill, peel off waxed paper.
  6. Close grill lid and cook for about 2 minutes.
  7. Carefully flip dough using tongs and/or large spatula.
  8. Top with remaining bbq sauce, chicken, cheese, onion, cilantro, cashews, and jalepenos (*optional).
  9. Close lid and cook until bubbly, checking occasionally making sure bottom doesn't get too charred.
  10. Adjust heat and cook indirectly if bottom begins to char too much before top is bubbly.
