1 par-baked pizza shell
2 tablespoons good olive oil
4 ounces sliced fresh mozzarella
2 plum tomatoes, sliced thin
½ cup blanched spinach
½ medium red onion, sliced thin
¾ cup grilled sliced chicken breast
Brush the top of the pizza shell with oil. Top with mozzarella; the better the cheese, the better the pizza.
Add the toppings: tomatoes, spinach, onions and end with grilled chicken. Now place the pizza on your grill. If using gas, turn down the gas as low as possible.
Quickly shut the grill cover but pay attention and rotate the pizza 90o often. It will only take about 5 to 6 minutes to crisp up the crust and melt the cheese. Remove from the grill, cut and serve.
Top with parmesan and basil, or anything you like. Enjoy.
