How to Prep the Toppings for the Pizza
The first step in making this pizza is preparing the ingredients. To start thinly slice a green bell pepper and ½ of a yellow onion. Now heat 2 tsp vegetable or olive oil in large skillet and sauté the green bell pepper and onion for about 2-3 minutes on medium-high heat.
Next you will need to make sure you shred 6 ounces of chicken off a rotisserie chicken then add to the peppers and onions. You can use both dark and white meats. This will allow the chicken to absorb the flavors of the peppers and onion as it heats with them.
It is seasoning time, add in 1 Tbs Chugwater Chili Dip-Dressing Mix Seasoning. This seasoning is nice because it gives the topping a nice southwestern taste and great flavor.
Make sure to stir the southwestern seasoning into the pepper, onion, and chicken until it looks like all ingredients have been coated in seasoning.
Add in one can of fire roasted diced tomatoes. The fire roasted tomatoes give the topping a kind of smoky taste that is only enhanced when it is grilled. But if you prefer another type of diced tomato you can still use it. Let the pizza topping simmer for about 2 minutes.
How to Make the Pizza
Now that you have prepped your pizza toppings you can assemble your pizza. This recipe calls for a premade ready to go pizza crust from the store an example of a crust brands is Boboli but you can use whatever brand you prefer. This helps cut down on prep time. If you want to use a pizza dough you can but will have to use a pizza stone when you place it in the grill. Now place the topping on the pizza. Make sure that the majority of the surface of the crust is covered.
Now add 1 cup shredded Monterey jack cheese on to the top of the pizza. If you prefer a cheesier pizza feel free to add more cheese. Now your chicken pizza is ready for grilling.
How to Grill Pizza
Heat the grill to at least 450 degrees. With the ready to go pizza you can set the pizza in the grill without a pizza stone. If you prefer to use a pizza stone or have a dough you are using you can place the pizza on it and let is cook. Let the pizza heat for 8-10 minutes if you are using the ready to go crust if not it might be 20-30 minutes for a dough crust. Make sure your cheese gets nice and melted.
