Perfect Grilled Pizza {Hawaiian BBQ Chicken}

Did you know you could cook pizza right on your grill? This perfect grilled pizza is so easy to make and tastes amazing! -happymoneysaver.comPizza night is one of my family’s favorite nights at my house.  Ok, who am I kidding?  It’s mine, too.  I love pepperoni, sausage, canadian bacon and even plain ol’ cheese holds a little place in my heart.  Now you know I love to grill and one night I tried grilling my pizza dough.  The explosion of smoky flavor took my ordinary pizza to the next level!  It makes me wonder why I haven’t been doing this all the time.

Which brings me to my problem–I am a very hands-on griller meaning I forget sometimes how hot the grill can be and reach out and turn the food with my hands.  Some may call it laziness to not want to take the time to walk into the kitchen to grab a spatula but I prefer to call it enthusiasm for a good meal!

Well, after nursing my latest kabob burns, the perfect solution fell in my lap–Silicone Barbeque gloves.  They protect my hands by allowing me to stay close to my food without getting burned.  They are perfect for grilling up my favorite summer pizza–Hawaiian BBQ Chicken Pizza!  Let’s get grilling!

The Perfect Grilled Pizza – Hawaiian BBQ Chicken Pizza

First, grill up the chicken seasoned simply with salt and pepper.

Next, make a quick marinade of equal parts honey, brown sugar and water and spoon over skewered pineapples.  It mimics the flavor from Brazilian steakhouses and gives the pineapple extra pop on the pizza!  Make sure you make a couple extra skewers so you can sample it while you finish making the pizza–trust me!  🙂

Add the pineapple to the grill for about 2 minutes on each side until it has char marks on each side.

When the chicken is cooked through, slather it in BBQ sauce so the flavors can soak in and add another element of BBQ on the pizza.  I love to use my homemade BBQ sauce but you can use any of your favorite BBQ sauces.  Cook for one more minute and then take the chicken and pineapple off the grill.

Slice the chicken and pineapple into bite-size pieces.  Chop the washed cilantro and set it to the side for garnish.

Put cornmeal down on a pizza peel or a baking sheet before adding the dough.  I like to use a little cornmeal so the dough slides off easier and adds a little texture to the crust.  Roll out your dough.  Here is where your creativity comes out.  You can roll it into whatever shape you want it to be.  I always try for the perfect circle but it usually ends up like this.  Close enough, right?

Brush with olive oil and take it out to your hot grill.

Ease the dough off the peel oiled-side down so that the dough doesn’t stick to the grates.  Then quickly brush the other side of the dough with oil and shut the grill door.

After about 2-3 minutes the dough will start to bubble up and the edges will brown.  That is when you want to turn the pizza. And the time when your BBQ gloves come in handy to reach in and flip it!

The Grilling Gloves.

Okay, I need to stop right here and take a minute to tell you about these awesome grilling gloves from Kitchen Mastery.  I used to have little burns on my hands all the time from grilling or even from grabbing a hot pan.  I now use these gloves in my kitchen as pot holders, in the backyard when grilling and I even take them camping so I can cook without worrying about the heat from the fire.  They are my absolute go-to when cooking kabobs, grilling vegetables, fish and chicken with a food grade silicone grip on the gloves that makes them comfortable and easy to handle.  My one complaint is the gloves are one size fits all which is great for most people but my hands don’t quite fill in the gloves all the way.  It’s worth it to me though because then I can share the gloves with my husband–when he is allowed near the grill!

If you want your own pair or to give as the perfect gift, you can go here to buy the Kitchen Mastery Silicone Barbeque Gloves.  They are life-changing for a grill master or even just a regular country girl like me!

Once it is grilled on both sides, take it off the grill.
