Ingredients

2
cups shredded taco-flavored cheese (8 ounces)
1
package (16 ounces) ready-to-serve original pizza crust (12 to 14 inches in diameter)
1 1/2
cups chopped cooked chicken
2
roma (plum) tomatoes, thinly sliced
1
small jalapeño chili, seeded and finely chopped

  • 1 Heat coals or gas grill for direct heat.
  • 2 Sprinkle cheese evenly over pizza crust. Top with remaining ingredients.
  • 3 Cover and grill pizza 4 to 6 inches from medium heat 8 to 10 minutes or until crust is crisp and cheese is melted. (If crust browns too quickly, place a piece of aluminum foil between crust and grill.)

Expert Tips

An old vinyl tablecloth makes a good substitute grill cover. Attach fabric tape fasteners at the edges to hold the cover in place.

For individual pizzas, use two 6-inch ready-to-serve pizza crusts and simply divide ingredients equally between the two crusts. Grilling time should be about the same.
