Cooking with Collections: Grilled BBQ Chicken Pizza

The sun is shining. The birds are chirping. The days are getting longer.

Spring is in full bloom, my friends, and that means you have more reasons than ever to stay outside just a little longer. And hey, if you can grill something delicious that has your neighbors sniffing the air like bunnies? Well, that’s just a bonus. 

When it comes to meal planning, grilling is a fast and fun way to change up your weeknight menu. In fact, my family is loving the May/June recipes from the Easy Grillin’ 10 Meals & More Collection, since it has a lot of fresh twists on some of our favorite foods like grilled chicken and pizza. And you’ll even find the best of both worlds with today’s recipe featured below!

Smoky and a little sassy, these grilled BBQ pizzas are quick and delicious – loaded with chunks of chicken, crispy bacon and melted mozzarella cheese.

Real-Life Cooking with Collections
Now you might already know that you can get a collection delivered to your doorstep automatically every month with TS to You – complete with beautiful recipe cards, a handy grocery list and tips for leftovers. But how do you make collections part of your regular routine?

Since making 10 new meals in a row would result in a revolt in our house from the tiny tyrants (ages 3 and 6), we’re trying two recipes each week. It’s been a fun way to liven up our regular rotation without rocking the boat too much. In fact, this is what our menu actually looks like this week:

On the Fridge: This Week’s Menu
Monday: Tacos
Tuesday: Zesty Honey BBQ Chicken with roasted asparagus
Wednesday: BLTs with sweet potato fries
Thursday: Grilled BBQ Chicken Pizza
Friday: Leftovers (woohoo!)
Saturday: Grilled cheddar brats, chips and fresh fruit
Sunday: Pork chops, salad and baby red potatoes

Oh, and don’t forget that every meal collection includes a bonus dessert!

Lemon Trifle

Bonus Dessert: Mini Lemon Raspberry Trifles
This week I made Sunny Lemon Pound Cake & Icing Mix, which came with my grilling collection. It looks fancy, but don’t be fooled. All I did was layer cubes of the cake with instant coconut pudding, whipped topping and fresh raspberries. (You can create one big trifle in a large glass bowl, or make mini trifles in clear glasses like these.) Yum!   

Have you tried the Easy Grillin’ 10 Meals & More Collection yet? What’s your favorite recipe so far? I’d love to hear what you think!

Happy grilling!

Grilled BBQ Chicken Pizza

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 medium red onion, thinly slice
  • 3 teaspoons Green Tea Peppercorn Seasoning , divided
  • 2 (10 ounce) packages pre-baked thin pizza crusts (such as Boboli®)
  • 2 cups shredded rotisserie chicken or cooked chicken
  • ½ cup cooked and crumbled bacon
  • 3 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

Directions

  1. Prepare grill to medium-low heat. In medium skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add onions and 2 teaspoons Green Tea Peppercorn Seasoning. Sauté 6-8 minutes or until softened and browned.
  2. Spread pizza crusts with Smoky Bacon BBQ Sauce. Top with chicken, bacon and sautéed onions and cheese. Sprinkle with remaining 1 teaspoon Green Tea Peppercorn Seasoning.
  3. Place pizzas on grill. Grill until cheese is melted, about 10-12 minutes. Watch crust and turn grill down if needed so crust doesn't burn before cheese melts.

Makes 6-8 servings.

Make Ahead & Freeze: Prepare through step 2. Wrap in plastic wrap and then in heavy-duty aluminum foil; crimp and seal edges well. Label and freeze. Thaw completely. Continue with step 3.

Tips and Hints

  • Did you know that you can buy handy containers of chopped rotisserie chicken at your local grocery store’s deli counter? (I seriously had no idea. It’s changed my life.) What a huge time-saver!
  • Our family omitted the onions in this recipe (again … tiny tyrants) and added extra thick-cut bacon (because … it’s bacon). Feel free to make it your own!
  • Adding a handful of diced pineapple or chopped green peppers would also be delicious.
  • While this is a great everyday meal, it’s a fun and easy recipe for entertaining a few friends in the backyard, too. Serve with ice-cold lemonade or beer for the grown-ups!
