Irresistible BBQ Chicken Pizza On The Grill (A Must-Try 4th Of July Recipe)



Prep time


Cooking time





What is BBQ chicken pizza made of?

  • 1 pound pizza dough (store-bought or homemade)

  • 1 cup cooked and shredded BBQ chicken

  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

  • 1/2 cup shredded gouda cheese

  • 1/4 cup red onion, thinly sliced

  • 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped

  • 2 tablespoons BBQ sauce

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil


  • Preheat the Grill: Preheat your grill to medium-high heat. Brush the grates with some olive oil to prevent sticking.
  • Prepare the Dough: Roll out the pizza dough into a 12-inch circle. If you prefer a thinner crust, you can stretch it out a bit more.
  • Grill One Side of the Dough: Carefully place the rolled-out dough on the preheated grill. Cook it for about 2-3 minutes or until you see grill marks and the bottom side is slightly cooked. Once done, remove the dough from the grill and place it on a large flat surface with the cooked side facing up.
  • Assemble the Pizza: Drizzle olive oil over the cooked side of the dough and spread it evenly. Next, spread the BBQ sauce over the olive oil. Sprinkle the shredded mozzarella and gouda cheese over the sauce, making sure to cover the entire surface. Top the cheese with the shredded BBQ chicken, red onion slices, and chopped cilantro.
  • Grill the Pizza: Carefully slide the assembled pizza back onto the grill. Close the grill’s lid and let the pizza cook for about 5-7 minutes or until the cheese is melted, and the crust turns golden brown.
  • Serve and Enjoy: Once the pizza is done, remove it from the grill and let it cool for a minute. Slice it into wedges and serve it hot to your eagerly waiting guests.
