Take it outside.
Few foods have the universal appeal of pizza. The variations and combinations are endless, and the creative possibilities extend to cooking techniques as well. Who wants to heat up the kitchen on a beautiful summer afternoon or evening? That’s when you want to be outside, grilling with family and friends. Everyone loves pizza, and the same goes for grilling. Combining the two is pure pizza genius.
The right season for ratatouille.
Ratatouille is an all-star veggie mix of onions, garlic, zucchini, tomatoes, eggplant and bell peppers. It’s also a great way to make use of fresh summer produce and pairs perfectly with the lean protein of boneless, skinless chicken breasts. Grill the chicken while you’re roasting the vegetables, and in just 10-15 minutes you’ll be ready to start building your own custom Grilled Ratatouille Chicken Pizzas.
Grill, flip, build.
The single most important step in making a pizza on the grill is pre-cooking the crust on the side you’ll use to layer on the ingredients. All it takes is about four minutes until the crust is golden brown. When it’s ready, just flip it over and then start topping it evenly with the vegetables, chicken, cheese and herbs. That’s it. The veggies and chicken are already cooked, so the final step is melting the cheese and heating the crust until it’s completely done.
Round, square, big, small.
Who says pizzas have to be round? If your grill is rectangular, try rectangular or square pizzas. Or roll out smaller personal pizzas so people can choose their own ingredients. And note, you don’t have to make the pizza dough from scratch. There’s ready-to-bake pizza dough in the refrigerated section of your grocery store, frozen bread dough options and possibly even fresh from a local baker.
