Pizza is such a favorite at our house that I make it at least once a week. When the heat and humidity are up there, though, the last thing that I want to do is turn on the oven. So I just move my recipe to the grill—the barbecue flavor mingling with the cheese tastes delicious. —Lisa Boettcher, Columbus, Wisconsin

  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • 1 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2-3/4 to 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups shredded or cubed cooked chicken
  • 1/2 to 3/4 cup barbecue sauce
  • 1/2 cup julienned green pepper
  • 2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese


  1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in water. Add the oil, sugar, baking soda, salt and 2 cups flour. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
  2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, 6-8 minutes. Cover and let rest for 10 minutes. On a floured surface, roll dough into a 13-in. circle. Transfer to a greased 12-in. pizza pan. Build up edges slightly.
  3. Grill, covered, over medium heat for 5 minutes. Remove from grill. Spread barbecue sauce over the crust. Sprinkle with cheese, chicken and green pepper. Grill, covered, 5-10 minutes longer or until crust is golden and cheese is melted.
