GRILLED BBQ PIZZA
1 pre made 12 - 14 inch pizza shell
chicken & rib bbq sauce
1 - 2 cooked chicken breasts chopped
red pepper sliced
shredded mozzarella cheese or shredded cheese combo of cheddar/mozza/montery jack
Heat BBQ to medium heat. Brush pizza shell on both sides with oil. (I prefer a light olive oil, but any you like may be used.) Place on grill, cover and grill for a minute per side.
Remove from grill and add BBQ sauce using back of spoon to spread almost to edges. Add cheese. Then chicken, then the vegetables. I like to add a little more sprinkle of cheese at this point but that's optional.
Place back on BBQ, cover and let grill until cheese is hot and bubbly. Depending on your grill, you might want to turn it down a bit. Check bottom of pizza to see if it's turning brown too quickly.
