Grilled Chicken Tomato Basil Bruschetta Pizza l

Chicken. Bruschetta. Pizza.

So would you believe I made this pizza last year in the summertime? When my basil plant was 2 feet tall and NOT entombed in snow, when I had a suntan and I was working my grill like it was my job. Well we just got about 16 inches of snow {could be more depending on where you’re standing} and I’m thinking it’s probably a little too early to wish for spring or summer weather, but when I see and recall falling in love with this pizza… that’s exactly what I want to do.

When I think of basil I think of tomatoes and when I think of tomatoes I think bruschetta. Who doesn’t? So why not put it on a pizza?? So I whipped up my favorite tomato bruschetta recipe and instead of topping crispy toasted bread… I topped a cheesy, chicken pizza. And I couldn’t wait another minute to share it with you.

And trust me, it doesn’t have to be summer for you to enjoy this grilled chicken tomato basil bruschetta pizza!


Because I wanted a sturdy, thick pizza crust so that when I piled on the bruschetta it wouldn’t be all flimsy like, so I adjusted my pizza dough recipe to make this happen. To see the full post on how to make homemade pizza dough click here… just keep in mind I did make some minor adjustments, so you can use the link for the visual help, but you’ll want to follow the recipe below.

dough ball

Form the dough into a ball.


Then roll it around in a large, olive oiled bowl, cover and let rise for an hour or so.

tomatoes, garlic, basil and parsely

Meanwhile; in a bowl combine 6 to 8 medium sized roma tomatoes that have been seeded and chopped, two good size cloves of garlic that have been minced, 1/4 cup of sliced fresh basil and 1 tablespoon of chopped fresh parsley.

salt, pepper and red pepper flakes

Season it with a couple pinches of kosher salt, black pepper and red pepper flakes.

basil olive oil

Drizzle in a 3 tablespoons of olive oil.


Next add in two tablespoons of balsamic vinegar.


Now just stir those glorious ingredients together and let the tomatoes sit and marinate in all those bright flavors.


For the chicken I tossed chicken breasts in garlic infused olive oil and season them with your favorite all-purpose seasoning salt.

Grilled chicken

And then I just grilled them until they were fully cooked. Of course if you have an indoor grill or grill pan you can certainly use those. See! It truely doesn’t have to be summer for you to enjoy this pizza.

sliced chicken

Once the chicken has rested and cooled for a bit, I sliced it pretty thin and set it off to the side for a sec.


Look at my dough! It has risen and is ready for pizza making.

divide dough

Divide the dough in 4 medium to 8 small portions.

shape dough

Stretch and form the dough.

chicken toppedthin sliced onion

Next, layer with chicken and fresh red onion if you’d like…

mozz and parm

And then sprinkle with freshly grated mozzarella and Parmesan cheese.

invert sheet pan and bake

Then invert a sheet pan so it would be closer to the heat and baked in a 400° oven for 12-16 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the dough is golden and crispy.


Mmmmm! Now it’s just begging for some bruschetta!
