This pizza was ridiculously garlicky and delicious. I prefer to have a saucy pizza, others may not. But either way, that hidden spread of roasted garlic with the sweetness of the caramelized onions and mushrooms, the texture of the grilled chicken, the stringy cheese. Oh dear. I want to eat this again... right now. Unfortunately I made two 6-inch pizzas that were gone in one sitting.

Leave a comment below. Tell us what you make on the grill and it disappears in one sitting. What does your family love to eat so much that it disappears in one go?

Chicken Pizza With Caramelized Onions,

Serves: 2 to 4       Total Time: 45


  • 1 Quick BBQ Pizza Dough
  • 2 small chicken breasts, grilled
  • 1 large onion
  • pinch of sugar
  • 8 white mushrooms (or your favourite)
  • 4 tbsp. butter, divided
  • 6 cloves of Grill-Roasted Garlic
  • 1 cup of pizza sauce (try my roasted garlic sauce)
  • 1 cup+ of shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 tbsp. garlic butter
  • sprinkle of parmesan cheese
  • ¼ cup of cornmeal


Step 1
Preheat your grill to 400°F, or use your side burner. In your Cast Iron Skillet, melt 2 tbsp. of butter and over medium-low heat, slowly caramelize the onions. Once they have become translucent, sprinkle with a pinch of sugar and continue to gently caramelize.
Step 2
While the onions are going, do the same with the mushrooms. Gently caramelize them in 2 tbsp. of butter over medium-low heat. You don't need sugar for these.
Step 3
Slice the chicken breasts into slices or chunks, whatever you fancy. Prepare all ingredients to top the pizza and have them at the ready for when you start cooking.
Step 4
Prepare your pizza dough. Preheat the grill to medium-high, about 400 to 425°F with the pizza stone on the grill and preheating with it.
Step 5
Sprinkle the pizza stone with cornmeal and place the rolled out dough onto the stone. Allow the dough to bake for 2 to 5 minutes. Flip using the pizza peel and spread the cooked side of the dough with the roasted garlic. Top with sauce, half of the cheese, the onions, mushrooms, and chicken, followed by the rest of the cheese. Bush around the edge of the crust with the garlic butter and then sprinkle with the parmesan.
Step 6
Grill bake for 3 to 5 more minutes, or until all of the cheese is melty and bubbling. Turn off the grill and remove the pizza to a baking sheet or platter, allowing the pizza stone to cool on the grill.
Step 7
Serve immediately.
Okay so my favourite from school days was the Caramelized Onion and Bacon Pizza, but I am older and wiser now. Now I make pizza with grilled chicken on it. Muuuch better. Right? Especially if you add mushrooms and brush the crust with garlic butter. OH YEAH. This Chicken Pizza With Caramelized Onions, Mushrooms And Roasted Garlic is overflowing with delicious sweet caramelized onion, and salty caramelized mushroom, the chicken is tender and juicy and a hidden little secret. I spread roasted garlic on the crust before topping it. Super yum!
