Barbeque Chicken Pizza on the Grill

Today I thought I would share a new favorite time saving recipe. After all, less time cooking = more time for projects ... ok not just for projects, but sometimes :) And I do really like cooking, but shortcuts can be great too!
We started using our grill more and I love it! Friday we decided to try making pizza on it and it turned out AMAZING, I just had to share!

We started with Trader Joes fresh pizza dough. You just take it out of the bag and let it rest for about 20 minutes and then it is ready to go! I love this stuff, you get the taste of fresh bread without any work! Of course making it from scratch is the best, but this is a great time saver!

Friday we made barbeque chicken pizza, yum! Here's how we did it.

We cooked a few chicken tenderloins on the grill first and put them aside (chopped and mixed in a little barbeque sauce). On the stove we sauteed some onion and finished them off by reducing a little balsamic vinegar.

We spread the dough out, sprayed it with cooking spray, put it on the grill and let it cook for about a minute or two (sprayed the other side with cooking spray) and flipped when it had light grill marks.

We put a little barbeque sauce on the crust a few pieces of cheese (grate if you would like it more even), we added the chicken, and cooked onion, closed the grill and let it cook for a few minutes, checking the bottom to make sure that it didn't get too dark.  It cooked SO fast!

Once it was done we put a little chopped cilantro! This pizza has so much flavor that it doesn't need a lot of cheese which is a nice calorie saving alternative!

Last night we made pretzels with TJ fresh dough, (boiled them in baking soda water for about a minute first) and finished cooking them on the grill. I make these in the oven often and didn't think that they tasted that different, but nice if if you already have the grill out!


and in project news, we added the supports last night for the shelving and it is a lot studier and straight! Tutorial tomorrow :)


  1. Um, my mouth is watering now! This looks so delicious!! I can't wait to try it out.

    1. hi chaney! it's so good! you must try it! :)

  2. I saw your instagram photo of your grilled pizza which inspired us to make our own this weekend. We went more the greek route, but it was delicious! Thanks for the inspiration!

    1. Greek sounds amazing too!! Maybe we'll try that next weekend!

  3. I've never done pizza on the grill but think I might give it a shot. I love the easy cleanup! And soft pretzels are one of my all-time favorite snacks. I would eat them everyday if I still had the metabolism of my 14 year old self. Damn aging... :)

  4. Looks delicious! So wish I lived close to a Trader Joe's. =)


Thank you so much for taking the time to share your thoughts! I love hearing what you think! :)
