Grilled Chicken and Pepper Pizza

Sharing is caring!


We are cramming as much grill action as we can into this last stretch of sun.  Eric couldn’t resist the chance to make Steak and eggs this week, and with more game day glory coming up this weekend we are once again looking to the essentials for the best fall tailgate gathering.

RITZ crackers make the essential snack, so versatile and stackable.  Of course plenty of Dr Pepper ® , as essential perhaps as the Kingsford® Charcoal we grill with.  But the unsung hero of the hit tailgate grill party is the oh-so-handy Glad ®  Press ‘n Seal.

Take out a roll and cut to size to cover and seal any open container in your kitchen.  It’s great for those grill parties that are so rich in sides and toppings.  That’s exactly how I kept all of the toppings for our charcoal grilled pizza and it worked wonders. The pizza paired with these amazing party enhancements from Walmart is a recipe for a TOUCHDOWN!

Fall football season always brings out my competitive nature, so I like to bring it when it comes to my game day recipes.  The fun of gathering to watch the sport and eat amazing food always inspires me.  I thought, why not grill a pizza on the outdoor BBQ and I came up with a crispy crust topped with gooey cheese chicken and great fresh veggies and herbs like pepper, corn and basil.

I got the crust courtesy of a canned pizza dough that I pre-baked before topping and placing on the grill.
