Grilled Barbecue Chicken Pizza

  • Duration
  • Prep Time
  • Makes one pizza (8 slices)Servings


  • 1/2 recipe (1 ball) uncooked whole-wheat pizza dough
  • 1/2 tsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 6 oz cooked chicken, shredded (about 1 3/4 cups)
  • 6 tbsp all-natural barbecue sauce, divided (TRY: Tessemae’s Matty’s Organic BBQ Sauce)
  • 1 1/4 cups shredded mozzarella cheese (or a blend of mozzarella and cheddar)
  • 1/2 cup corn kernels, fresh or frozen and defrosted
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced red onion 2 tbsp fresh cilantro leaves


1. Preheat a grill to medium.

2. Use a rolling pin to roll out dough to an 8½ x 13-inch rectangle or 11-inch circle (no need to flour surface). Grease a large baking sheet with oil. Add dough to sheet and flip so that both sides have a light oil coating.

3. In a medium bowl, toss chicken with 2 tbsp barbecue sauce.

4. Remove dough from sheet and place directly on grill. Close lid and, after 2 minutes, flip. Watch closely to ensure dough gets good grill marks and puffs up slightly but does not burn.

5. While still on grill, spread remaining ¼ cup sauce on dough. Sprinkle with cheese, then chicken mixture, corn and onion. Close lid and cook until cheese has melted but crust is not burned, about 4 minutes. If crust is dark enough but cheese hasn’t melted, finish in a 350ºF oven.
