If you are making homemade pizza in the summer, you have to try it on the grill! This Grilled Chicken Pizza with Mozzarella & Roasted Garlic recipe provides step-by-step instructions that will teach you how to grill pizza like a pro.
- 2 heads garlic, top of bulbs trimmed off so tops of cloves are exposed.
- 1 ball of pizza dough, store-bought or homemade.
- 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided.
- 1/2 cup prepared pizza sauce.
- 1-1/2 cups cooked and pulled/chopped chicken.
- 4 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese, thinly sliced.
- 1 tablespoon Everything Bagel Seasoning.
- 1 cup spinach leaves, torn.
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Wrap garlic heads in foil and place on a small rimmed baking pan. Transfer to oven and cook 1 hour or until garlic is dark golden brown and very soft. Remove from oven and let stand for 5 minutes or until cool enough to touch. Squeeze garlic cloves from their skin into a small bowl.
- Preheat grill for two-zone grilling: half of the grill should be set to medium-high; another half should be off (indirect heat).
- Stretch and shape dough into a 14-inch circle and place on a pizza pan or large tray. Brush one side of dough with 1 tablespoon oil. Use hands to transfer the dough to the direct heat side of the grill, oiled side down. Do not worry if dough becomes a little misshapen during the transfer. Cook 2 minutes, or until the dough releases itself from the grates (do not disturb dough before it releases).
- Brush the top side of dough with the remaining 1 tablespoon oil, then use tongs to flip the dough. Cook 2 minutes or until dough releases from grates. Continue cooking dough 3 to 4 minutes longer or until dough is firm and grill-marked in all areas, flipping and rotating frequently but keeping the grill closed when not flipping.
- Remove dough from grill and spread with sauce. Top with chicken, cheese, everything bagel seasoning, and roasted garlic cloves.
- Transfer pizza back to the grill on the indirect heat side. Close grill and cook 8 to 10 minutes or until toppings are warmed through and crust is fully cooked.
- Remove pizza from grill and top with spinach. Cut and serve immediately.
Home Chef Tips:
Garlic can be roasted up to 3 days in advance. Keep in a covered container in the refrigerator until ready to use.

About this grilled chicken pizza:
- For the crust, I bought a brand of locally-made frozen pizza dough. Feel free to make your dough, or buy a refrigerated version.
- If you’re not confident about your dough grilling skills, take an easy shortcut and use naan bread!
- I used a good brand of store-bought pizza sauce here. Again, feel free to make your own, but pre-made pizza sauce is a shortcut I’m comfortable with taking.
- For chicken, I pulled apart a cooked chicken breast that was leftover from a meal earlier in the week. Rotisserie chicken works great, too!
- In my opinion, nothing beats big slices of fresh mozzarella on a pizza. With a fresh, milky flavor and super creamy texture, Stella Organic Fresh Mozzarella Cheese is what I keep on hand for homemade pizza (if I don’t “snack” until it all disappears before I make the pizza).
- I roasted my garlic (instructions in recipe card) because it’s easy, cheap and makes the house smell delicious. If you’d rather buy roasted garlic from the olive bar at your store, hey – judgment-free zone.
- I had spinach on hand so I used that for some leafy freshness, but arugula or kale would be great as well.
- You haven’t lived until you’ve eaten a pizza with everything bagel sprinkle.
