Grilled Pizza With Chicken and Peach

If you’re looking for summer pizza recipe that’s not only quick, but ideal for outdoor dining, then look no further. Juicy peaches, a simple ricotta sauce, and rotisserie chicken unite on top of perfectly charred pizza dough, while fresh basil brightens each bite with its fragrant herbal flavor. For extra kick (and restaurant-worthy taste), crushed red pepper and a drizzle of honey would take it over the top. P.S. This recipe is easily customizable. The white sauce is creamy, garlicky, salty, cheesy, and flavorful, making it the perfect canvas for any toppings. Grilled zucchini and mint would be delicious, as would shaved asparagus and sliced mushrooms.

Total Time:

4 serves


  • Olive oil, for grill grates and peach

  • 1 cup whole-milk ricotta cheese

  • 2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream

  • 2 large cloves garlic, finely chopped

  • 1 peach, pitted and halved

  • 1 pound fresh pizza dough, stretched and rolled into a 14-in. round

  • 8 ounces mozzarella cheese, shredded (about 2 cups), divided

  • 1 cup shredded rotisserie chicken

  • ½ cup thinly sliced red onion

  • Fresh basil, torn, for serving


  1. Preheat grill to high (450°F to 500°F) and lightly oil grates. Combine ricotta, cream, and garlic in a small bowl.

  2. Brush cut sides of peach with oil. Grill, cut sides down, uncovered, until grill marks appear, about 1 minute. Transfer to a cutting board and thinly slice. Place dough on grates; grill, uncovered, until bottom is set and grill marks appear, about 2 minutes. Remove crust from grill; invert onto an unrimmed baking sheet, grill marks facing up. Reduce grill temperature to medium (350°F to 400°F).

  3. Spread ricotta mixture on grill-marked crust, leaving a ½-inch border. Sprinkle with 1 cup mozzarella. Top with chicken, onion, peach slices, and remaining 1 cup mozzarella.

  4. Slide pizza onto grates; grill, covered, until crust bottom is crisp and cheese is melted, 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board. Let stand for 5 minutes. Top with basil and slice.
