Gather 'round the grill with family and friends to make this Grilled BBQ Chicken Pizza recipe with zucchini, mushrooms, onions and peppers. Not only will you enjoy a flavorful pizza, but you'll make some memories in the process.
We just finished another fun cookout recipe! It's on our recipe bucket list. Do you have one?
It's a list of recipes or foods your family wants to try. There's no need to be formal. It can just be an ongoing discussion.
Once you start one, I bet your family will become a little more adventurous and everyone will become more involved in making good food choices.
Zucchini brownies and Fruit Pizza Cookies were both on our infamous list at one time. I can't say we all agreed on the priority of these adventures, but they made for some very memorable experiences none the less.
Why Grill Pizza?
One thing that we all agree on is pizza...and grilling! I love when the grill comes out because the entire family gets involved. My hubby is the official CGO (Chief Grilling Officer.) But, everyone chips in to get dinner on the table. It's a family bonding experience. And, everyone looks forward to the meal...because everything just tastes better on the grill!
You're going to love this recipe because:
- It combines convenience and fresh ingredients for a quick and easy meal.
- Grilling pizza intensifies the flavors and is sooo quick!
- It's a family memory-making experience!
Tips and Tricks
- The key to grilled pizza is organization. Everything should be completely ready to go on the grill. And, everyone must know their assignment in advance. It's helpful to have many hands...family teamwork at its finest!
- Veggies can be roasted in the oven up to a day in advance or make them on the grill first.
- For BBQ Chicken Pizza, stage vegetables, cooked chicken, cheese and ranch dressing for quick assembly. My hubby has the important job of placing the pizza dough on the grill and flipping it over, without burning the bottom.
- We found that placing the rolled out crust in the freezer for about 10 minutes made the job a little easier.
- Someone needs to manage the timer too. It only takes about 2-3 minutes to cook the first side! Then, the dough is flipped to the other side, all the toppings are added and in about 3 more minutes the pizza is done!
