BBQ Chicken Pizza On The Braai
Turn your braai into a pizza oven! This works best if you have a kettle braai. If you only have a regular braai, slap two of these pizzas together and use a sandwich grid to make a pizza pie or pizza sandwich.
If you are using a kettle grill to make a pizza oven, you will need a pizza stone. These are great for making a smoky crisp pizza in a matter of minutes. The stone is heated up first before the pizza is added and then its cooked for 7-10 minutes depending on how hot your fire is.
These pizzas are great if you’re entertaining people or kids around the pool on a warm summer’s day.

Ingredients for one pizza:
- 1 chicken breast, poached in a little stock on a low simmer for 15 minutes (check to make sure it’s cooked through and add a few more minutes if needed)
- Premade pizza base
- Premade BBQ sauce
- About a quarter of a red onion, sliced
- ½ – 1 cup mozzarella cheese, grated
- Olive oil
Spread the pizza base with the cheese and then add torn pieces of chicken, onion and drizzle with BBQ sauce. Run a little olive oil around the edge and then place on the preheated pizza stone and cover with the lid of the kettle braai to cook for 7-10 minutes. Take it off the pizza stone to serve as the stone will be very hot and continue cooking the pizza.
