  • 2 pieces of Naan bread
  • 2 spicy jalapeno al fresco chicken sausages
  • 2/3 cup pesto (divided)
  • 1.5 cups mozzarella cheese (divided)
  • 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, diced in half
  • 1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • fresh basil for topping
  • 1 tbsp olive oil (divided)


  1. Clean and prepare the grill - make sure its heat is at medium/high heat.

  2. Cook the chicken sausages, flipping and rotating with tongs occasionally until they are warmed through and have a char on the outside. Remove and sit these on a plate.

  3. Brush one side of the naan flatbread with 1/2 tbsp of olive oil, making sure it's fully covered.

  4. Carefully, using tongs, place the naan flatbreads onto the hot grill with the oil side DOWN on the grill. Let it sit for 30 seconds to 1 minute to get a nice char. Remove and bring the flatbreads inside.

  5. Once back in the kitchen, carefully slice the warmed chicken sausages into 1-1.5 inch coins. Dice the cherry tomatoes and thinly slice the red onion.

  6. Spread the naan (grilled side) with 1/3 cup of pesto. Add 1/3 cup of cheese, followed by the chicken sausage slices, cherry tomatoes and red onion. Finish with another 1/3 cup of cheese. Repeat with the other naan until the ingredients are used up.

  7. Once the pizzas are prepared to be grilled, carefully slide them onto the grill with the toppings up. Let grill for 2-4 minutes OR until the cheese is bubbly.* Keep an eye on the pizzas, moving it around if necessary to make sure that it doesn't burn. *see notes!!

  8. Once done, carefully remove from the grill and garnish with red pepper flakes and fresh basil. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

My grill is a small charcoal grill, therefore it has a pretty big hot spot where things can burn quickly. If yours is similar, make sure to rotate it/carefully move it around to avoid it getting burned! The cheese shouldn't take too long to melt :)
