This summer, take your pizza making outside with these nine better-for-you grilled pizza recipes with toppings ranging from chicken to jackfruit. There’s a pizza for everyone on this list.
1. Grilled Vegan BBQ Jackfruit Pizza

With its shredded texture, jackfruit serves as a vegan substitute for pulled pork and hemp seed is used to mimic cheddar cheese. This recipe features a homemade dough, but a pre-cooked flatbread can also be used.
2. Cauliflower Pizza with Greek Yogurt and Grilled Veggies

The grill is used to roast the zucchini and tomatoes and also gives a smoky flavor to the cauliflower crust. Instead of cheese, a simple spread is made with basil, garlic, and Greek yogurt.
3. Grilled Mushroom Pizza
In this recipe, whole wheat tortillas serve as an easy crust. The pizza is topped with mushrooms and shallots, but for an extra serving of vegetables, try adding arugula or squash.
4. Grilled Avocado-Barbecue Chicken Naan Pizza

Simplify your cooking time by using a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store—just be sure to add extra barbecue sauce. To get visible grill marks, put something heavy on top of the naan while it’s grilling.
5. Grilled Watermelon Pizza

For a lighter option, this recipe uses watermelon as the base instead of dough. When making the pesto, use less olive oil and be sure that it’s more chunky than regular pesto.
6. Charred Corn and Rosemary Grilled Pizza
