Speaking of easy recipes, this one is great! I know that with the warmer weather finally making an appearance, the last thing I want to do, is fire up the oven. But even in the summer, I like to enjoy some oven baked meals. So, I was super excited when I found this recipe for Grilled BBQ pizza and many other yummy BBQ recipes over on the Life Made Delicious site.

This one couldn't be easier and the results are so sensational. There is just something about BBQ sauce on pizza, that really appeals to me. I'm not sure if it's the sweet and savory, together, but I sure do love it. The crust was crispy and the topping were a mix of sweet and salty. My nephew really enjoyed this one, since we LOVE BBQ sauce and pizza. You could even use this method to make any version of pizza you prefer. But I highly recommend trying this version first!

Grilled Barbecue Chicken Pizza


1 pkg (283 g) Pillsbury* Italian Pizza Crust
1/4 cup (50 mL) barbecue sauce
3/4 cup (175 mL) chopped cooked chicken
1 tbsp (15 mL) chopped red onion
1 cup (250 mL) shredded mozzarella cheese
6 grape tomatoes, thinly sliced


Heat coals or gas grill on medium high for indirect heat. If using charcoal grill, arrange coals around edge of firebox.
Spray a 12-inch (30 cm) pizza pan with non-stick cooking spray. Unroll dough; place in pizza pan; starting at center, press dough out, forming a 1/2-inch (1 cm) rim. Grill pizza base over center of charcoal grill or over unheated side of gas grill. Cover and grill 10-12 minutes or until crust is firm. Rotate pizza occasionally.

Remove pizza from grill. Spread with barbecue sauce. Top with chicken, onion, cheese and tomatoes.

Return to grill; grill over unheated side of grill 8-12 minutes. Rotate pizza occasionally. For a crisp, brown crust, place pizza pan over direct heat for 30 seconds or longer. Gently lift corner of pizza from pan to test for crisping and browning.
Cut into wedges.

Way to go Cindy!!!

That pizza looks amazing. I have never grilled one before and now I know where to come for the recipe so I can try.

One of the things I love to grill in summer are the giant prawns we get here. I marinate them for an hour in a lemon garlic marinade and then throw them on the grill - absolutely yumm!
