Servings: 4 Servings
- 6 ounce chicken breast (boneless, skinless)
- 1 Tablespoon olive oil
- sea salt and black pepper
- 1/2 pound pizza dough
- 1/2 cup basil pesto
- 3/4 cup shredded smoked Gouda cheese
- 1 fresh peach (thinly sliced)
- fresh basil leaves (to garnish)
Prepare a batch of Basil Pesto or purchase a jar at the grocery store.
Preheat the grill and bring the temperature to 350 degrees.
Spray or brush the chicken breasts with olive oil, and season with sea salt and pepper. Place the chicken breasts on the grill and cook until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees. Remove from the grill and set aside to rest before slicing or shredding.
Press your pizza dough out to form a 10 to 12-inch circle on a floured work surface.
Slide the pizza dough onto the grill. Cover and cook for 2 minutes. Flip the pizza over, then remove from the grill.
Spread the pesto over the grilled side of the pizza crust.
Sprinkle the shredded cheese over the top, then add the chicken slices (or shredded chicken).
Return to the grill, cover and cook for 3 to 4 minutes until the cheese is melted and the crust is crisp.
Remove from the grill and top with sliced peaches and fresh basil leaves.
Slice and serve immediately. Repeat as many times as needed for additional pizzas.
- The recipe is written for one pizza to simplify the instructions. Adjust the serving size to “8” to make 2 pizzas.
- Do not overstretch your dough to make a larger pizza, it will be too thin and it will burn.
- Make the Italian Pizza Dough up to 3 days in advance, wrap with plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator. Allow to warm up on the counter before using.
- Make sure you sprinkle your pizza peel with cornmeal to keep the dough from sticking.
