Grilled Chicken Asparagus Feta Pizza
I can’t believe I have been making a pizza a week for almost 18 months, but never put asparagus on one. There have been a few times that it has crossed my mind, but it never seemed right. So tonight I set out to make a pizza with the primary goal of using asparagus.
I started by marinating chicken in a lemon garlic marinade. Then I placed a small amount of garlic and herb basting oil on some fresh asparagus. Andrew grilled the chicken and asparagus. Then I quickly chopped the toppings into bite sized pieces. Next, we grilled the dough for four minutes, then flipped it over and topped the pizza. I spread a light coat of olive oil on the dough, then sprinkled on feta cheese, and lastly arranged the chicken and asparagus. We let the pizza grill for about 4-5 more minutes before taking it off the heat.
The flavors of the feta cheese along with the grilled chicken, asparagus and the crust combined so well and made this pizza taste amazing!

We have been waiting to grill pizza all winter long, so we jumped at the opportunity this weekend. After grilling the dough on one side for four minutes and flipping, we began dressing the pizza. First we slathered on store bought sun-dried tomato pesto, sprinkled on feta cheese, lemon garlic chicken and sliced kalamata olives. We let it sit for a few minutes to give the dough a chance to get nice and crispy and for the cheese to melt a bit. Once again, grilled pizza did not disappoint. The flavors of all the toppings on this grilled pizza really popped! I have a feeling we will be getting a lot of use out the grill this summer!
