7 Healthy Grilled Pizza Recipes Perfect for Entertaining

We’re all familiar with the usual barbecue fixings: burgers, hot dogs, chicken kebabs and corn on the cob. But you may want to consider adding grilled pizza to your party menu. It’s the perfect al fresco dish for serving a crowd, and there are seemingly endless flavor and topping combinations. You can even switch things up and make a dessert pizza dressed with a ricotta cheese or mascarpone “sauce,” classic summer berries and a drizzle of melted chocolate and shredded coconut.

Don’t have time to make a crust? Use whole-wheat flatbread, tortilla wraps or pre-made whole-wheat pizza dough instead. Many groceries also carry gluten-free options if you have food allergies. Bonus: The grill cooks it up in 15 minutes or less for a super speedy crowd-pleasing dish. Just keep in mind that things happen fast on the BBQ, so have all the ingredients chopped and ready! Whether you’re hosting a summer soiree or craving a personal pie for one, we’ve got seven healthy grilled pizza recipes for every saucy occasion.

Think of your favorite cheese-and-cracker fixings. These berry, basil and brie pizza crisps are essentially all of those things in a mini pizza!

3. Grilled Avocado-Barbecue Chicken Naan Pizza
Naan bread, a staple of Indian cuisine, is the perfect crust when you’re crunched for time. Potassium-rich avocado makes a creamy base with melted mozzarella cheese. Top with shredded chicken and dress it with a barbecue sauce for a punch of flavor. Just use a light hand on the barbecue sauce since the sugar adds up, or you can make a lightened up version of your own. You can opt to skip the barbecue sauce altogether and just drizzle some heart-healthy olive oil for taste. Photo and Recipe: Cathy Pollak / NoblePig.com
