More About This Recipe

  • Grilled mini pizza apps with chicken taco flave...super yum!

    This appetizer marries several of my favorite things: tacos, grill, minis, and of course, all things pizza. Pizza on the grill in particular – that little bit of char and the extra crisp the grill gives the crust drives me wild.

    I do one thing a little differently when making mini pizzas on the grill. With a regular sized pizza, I just put the pizza dough on the grill, flipping it once before applying the toppings.

    However, the little guys are kinda slippery, and are just the right size to slip through the grates. So I bake them in the oven for a couple minutes ahead of time. When it’s grill time, just add toppings and cook on the top rack until the cheese is melty.

    To make the pizzas, spread out prepared pizza dough onto a cookie sheet. I used Pillsbury™ Thin Crust Pizza Crust, but they’re all fabulous for this recipe – there’s a new artisan version that I’m dying to try. Use a 2-1/4inch round cutter to cut shapes from the dough.

    Remove the excess.

    Bake for 2 to 3 minutes. When you’re ready to grill, just top the baked rounds with a little taco sauce, cheese and cooked chicken.

    Cook on the top rack of your grill until the cheese is melted. Remove mini pizzas from the grill and top with pico de gallo and a cilantro leaf.

    Hope you enjoy!
