Grilled Flatbread Pizza

  • Author: Fanny Slater
  • Total Time: 20 minutes
  • Yield: 4 flatbread pizzas 1x


Grab your tongs and tackle this smoky grilled flatbread pizza. It’s loaded with rich sun-dried tomatoes, cheese, chicken, and pesto.


  • 4 individually-sized flatbreads (naan, pita, lavash, etc.)
  • 6 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt, divided
  • 1/2 cup pesto (store-bought or homemade)
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup feta cheese, crumbled
  • 1 cup cooked chopped chicken
  • 1/4 cup sun-dried tomatoes packed in oil, drained and chopped
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons chopped fresh oregano (or 1/2 teaspoon dried)
  • 1/41/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes, or more to taste
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese, divided
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh basil leaves


  1. Preheat a grill or grill pan to medium heat (around 325-375°F).
  2. Brush the naan on both sides with 4 tablespoons of the olive oil and sprinkle on both sides with 1/2 teaspoon of the salt. Place the naan face-down on the grill and cook for 1 minute.
  3. Using tongs, flip the bread over and transfer to a cutting board or clean work surface. Spread with even portions of the pesto, leaving a 1/4-inch border around the edges. Evenly top each flatbread with the mozzarella, feta, chicken, sun-dried tomatoes, oregano, red pepper flakes, half of the parmesan cheese, and the remaining salt.
  4. Return the flatbreads to the grill. If you’re working with an outdoor grill, close the lid and grill until the cheese is melted and the bottom is golden-brown and crispy but not too dark, about 5-8 minutes. 
  5. Transfer the pizzas from the grill to a cutting board. Garnish with the basil, and the remaining parmesan and olive oil. Slice and serve.
