Grilled Chicken Pizza with Alabama White Sauce

Most of you may have figured out that I am a mayo based sort of sauce girl.  I have always loved mayo and it has carried on through the years.  Although I know its not the best thing for you, I really don't care (obviously) :).  One of the best sauces I think I found over the course of the last few years is Alabama barbecue sauce.  It's just so incredibly good and there are different ways of making it too.. which makes it versatile and gives it yet another point in my book!   So, of course, when I saw this recipe for pizza using a version of it as the sauce ... well, I knew I needed to try it.  And let me just say, I loved it so much, I might just give up red sauce on pizza completely!!!

Printable Recipe 
Ingredients:
1 Mama Mia's thin pizza crust (or any store bought or homemade crust/dough)
1 large chicken breast, grilled and diced
1 cup cherry tomatoes, chopped
1-2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
fresh chopped basil (optional)
For the Alabama White Sauce -
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 Tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
1 Tablespoon white wine vinegar
1/2 teaspoon granulated sugar

Directions:
Mix together all the ingredients for the sauce until well combined; set aside.

Preheat grill to 400 degrees F.  Brush olive oil on both sides of the pizza crust.  Place the crust top side down on the grill and grill for 2-3 minutes.  The crust should just start to brown.  Carefully remove from grill and flip over.  Spread the sauce on the cooked side of the crust and top with chicken, tomatoes and then cheese.   Place back on the grill and grill for 2-3 minutes.  Move pizza to indirect heat and finish grilling another 4-5 minutes or until the cheese has melted and is nice and bubbly.  Carefully remove from grill and allow to cool.  Add chopped basil, slice and serve. Enjoy!

Jenn, YOU a mayonnaise sauce fan? Noooooo! Looks great. My husband likes barbecue chicken pizza with red barbecue sauce, and I hate it. This I would like.

That looks amazing. Unfortunately, I just found out I'm allergic to mayo. Maybe I need to try a different kind. I'd like to try this recipe!
