Grilled Pesto Chicken Pizza with Fontina

Disclosure: I recieved a lovely care package of products from Colavita, plus I am being compensated for my participation in the Italian Summer Grilling campaign; all opinions are 100% my own.

I’ve been using and enjoying Colavita olive oils and vinegars for years, so the decision to collaborate with them on a Italian Summer Grilling post was an easy one for me. They sent me a variety of beautiful products and asked me to create a recipe for the grill using at least five of the items.

I came up with this Grilled Pesto Chicken Pizza with Fontina, and Sun-Dried Tomatoes: it’s definitely a keeper.

Grilled Pesto Chicken Pizza

Have you ever cooked pizza on the grill? It’s so quick, easy, and delicious, and makes a perfect summer meal. I’ve had a pizza stone like this one for a long time and I use it both in the oven and on the grill. This pizza was finished on the grill itself after cooking on the pizza stone.

For the chicken: I first marinated it, then cooked it on the grill before using it as one of the pizza toppings. Feel free to play around with the cheese in this recipe: I think a smoked mozzarella would be great. You can use be creative with vegetables, as well: adding some sliced cooked artichoke hearts or grilled eggplant would be perfect, I think.

You may use store-bought pizza dough or you can make one of Colavita’s pizza dough recipes: try the classic Fresh Pizza Dough or go for something more unique (and gluten free) with the Polenta Pizza Crust or the Cauliflower Pizza Crust.
