Grilled Chicken Pizza


  • 2 cooked skinless chicken breasts, shredded (about 1 cup)
  • ½ cup chopped fresh basil, or 1 1/2 tablespoons dried
  • 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ⅛ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1 (8-ounce) loaf whole wheat French bread, halved lengthwise
  • 3 ounces thinly sliced smoked mozzarella

Preheat broiler.

Toss chicken, basil, oil, garlic, salt and pepper in small bowl. Place bread halves cut side up; scatter chicken mixture evenly over them and top with mozzarella.

Place bread halves on baking sheet, broil 5 inches away from heat, until cheese is fully melted, 8 to 10 minutes.

This was so simple to make! It was also very, very good. I highly recommend using the smoked mozzarella, it really adds a tremendous element to the pizza. The original recipe calls for grilling the pizza, it was however November and while my husband will gladly grill in the cold, this was just as easy to put in the oven. Just heat it up until is warm.

I think this would be even tastier if you had leftover grilled chicken you could shred for the topping. Likely we will try this again next summer on the grill since we liked it so much.
