I’ve been grilling a lot of pizza’s over the past few months. It’s so simple and so perfect for week night dinners. Ok, so I cheat and either used ready made crusts or naan flatbreads, but still… I never claimed to be pizza chef 🙂 And I promise not be offended if you want to make your pizza crust – heck, I’ll ask if you do, to send some my way too!!
This is a simple pizza with big flavors. The Mediterranean twist brings something different to the table. I believe this will become a true family favorites.
Greek-Style Grilled Pizza
2 Tablespoons Greek yogurt
1/2 Tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 Tablespoon red wine vinegar
1/4 teaspoon dill
1 teaspoon oregano
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 large boneless, skinless chicken breast
12″ Boboli Pizza Crust (you can use homemade dough too, I just didn’t want to mess with it)
1/2 cup pizza sauce – homemade or store bought
1/4 cup peperoncini, chopped
2-4 Tablespoons sliced or chopped black olives (I used black olives because it was what I had on hand, but use Kalamata if you have them)
crumbled Feta cheese (I used about 1/3 – 1/2 cup)
shredded organic mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, quartered
In a bowl, mix together the yogurt, lemon juice, red wine vinegar, dill, oregano, garlic powder, salt and pepper until well combined. Pour mixture over chicken, cover, and refrigerate for at least an hour (preferably 2-4). Grill chicken at 375 degrees F for 6-10 minutes per side or until the chicken is cooked through. Allow to cool and cut or shred into bite size pieces.
When ready to make the pizza: Preheat grill to 375-400 degrees F. Place the Boboli crust directly over the fire and allow to grill for about 5 minutes, or until that side is golden brown. Remove from grill. Spread the pizza sauce over the grilled side of the crust. Top with chicken, peperoncinis, olives, feta, tomatoes, and mozzarella. Place pizza back on the grill and allow to cook for another 4-5 minutes. Once the bottom is golden brown, move to indirect heat and continue grilling until the cheese has melted. Carefully remove from grill, slice, and enjoy!
