This pizza keeps things nice and simple with a tomato pizza sauce base, some goats cheese, and a few other delicate toppings thrown on for good measure. The key here is to grill the base to get it well on the way to being cooked, and then add the toppings.

Once you have put the toppings on, place it back under the grill until you see the cheese and other toppings are all cooked and melted. After that, dress with a few leaves, and then serve a wonderful pizza done entirely under the grill.

The goat cheese is strong and tasty, so you really do not need much of anything else to get a taste explosion happening in your mouth. Also, don’t use too much of it or it may become overpowering, and we don’t want that to happen either.

This is another straightforward pizza that you can make under the grill. It does have a strong Mediterranean feel to it, but then that’s not exactly a bad thing.

As with any other grill pizza recipe, you want to kick start the base and get it starting to brown up. This will stop you from burning your toppings, which in this instance focuses on loads of Mozzarella, and some black olives are thrown on. Add in a few grape tomatoes to balance things off, and you have a light pizza that is amazingly satisfying.

This pizza throws up something a bit different with the use of a honey drizzle to add some real sweetness to the pizza. However, the base of it is lots of ricotta cheese, so that does mean it’s going to be nice and creamy.

Throw the base under the grill for a short while, and do so until you see it starting to turn a nice golden brown color. In this instance, you may want to cook some slices of tomato to add to the top, but we recommend spreading the ricotta over the base before dressing the rest of the pizza.

Once that’s done, throw it back under the grill for a few minutes, and you will have a wonderful pizza to enjoy in next to no time.

Now, this pizza looks amazing from the image, and it’s going to also taste amazing should you go ahead and make it. What you have here is a cheese of your choice, but Mozzarella is best, and the green ingredient is Swiss chard.

This gives the pizza a completely different taste from anything else you have probably experienced. Also, throw on some cherry tomatoes and perhaps add some lemon to the chard if you aren’t too keen on the taste.

But make sure you grill it carefully, or the Swiss chard will burn quite quickly. At that point, you would ruin your pizza, so take your time and look to time this to perfection.

This grilled pizza recipe offers you something different as it brings together cream cheese and chicken. Of course, you can also throw on some other ingredients if you like, but with those two as the mainstay, it does mean you have something pretty special going on.

The cream cheese should be spread over the base of the pizza in place of the pizza sauce you would normally use. Then throw some already cooked chicken, or roasted is better, over the top and add some chopped onions and herbs for good measure.

Once you have all the toppings ready, get it back under the grill until you see the cream cheese has gone to a nice consistency, and your chicken looks like it’s getting slightly crispy. At that point, it’s ready to serve.

This particular pizza is sometimes referred to as a taco pizza, and for good measure. It certainly has a strong Mexican taste to it with the ground beef, pinto beans and jalapenos, but you should also not forget the sour cream.

You can use any base for this pizza, but just make sure you grill it up first before you start adding the toppings. Also, cook the ground beef on its own, and make sure it’s nice and spicy to give the entire pizza that kicks. But don’t go over the top or those jalapenos will simply blow your mind when everything else is put together.

Just remember to be careful when putting it back under the grill to avoid your ground beef becoming too crispy.
