Greek Pizza on the Grill

So I guess you could view this post as cheating a little, as it combines recipes I've already posted into one new idea. I wanted to use the leftovers from the gyros and came up with this. I basically love it because it throws together two of my very favorite recipes from the summer!

What You Need:

Pizza Dough {Recipe Here}

Marinated, Cooked Chicken, {or skip to make meatless}:

4 cloves garlic, smashed
Juice of 1 lemon
2 teaspoons red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 heaping tablespoons plain yogurt
1 tablespoon dried oregano
Salt and pepper
1 1/4 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts

Kalamata Olives or an olive tapenade
Feta cheese
Red Onion
Fresh Basil would be great
{I also added a little goat cheese to mine}

If you are not using leftovers from gyros like I did, prepare the chicken marinade and let the chicken marinate for at least 2-4 hours. Cooking the chicken is your preference whether you want to grill it, bake it at 375 {20 minutes or until center is no longer pink} or sautee in a fry pan. Set aside.

Prepare pizza dough and have your grill and toppings ready. Again, the recipe and directions are here. It is very easy!

Once one side of your pizza dough is grilled, remove and place on a cookie sheet to put on your toppings. Make sure you are putting the toppings on the browned side! Place your pizza, ungrilled side down, back onto the grill until that side is browned and toppings are hot. Enjoy!
