Servings: 4
Author: Wanda Baker


  • 1 baked pizza shell pita, naan bread or any flatbread you can find or fresh pizza dough
  • 1-2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1-2 old cheddar white cheese shredded
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil
  • 1 tbsp cup coarsely ground pepper


  • Brush top of pizza shell with oil (use more or less as required).
  • Combine cheese and basil; sprinkle over pizza shell. Sprinkle with pepper (use less if serving to kids as it makes it spicy). Place pizza shell on a greased pizza pan or directly on grill. Bake, with lid down, over low heat on natural gas BBQ for 10-12 minutes or until cheese is melted. Slice and serve. Can also be baked in oven (350F) until cheese is melted.
  • If using fresh pizza dough roll or stretch out to shape flatbread (perfection not required). Drizzle olive oil on one side and place olive oil side down on medium-high grill. Close the lid and cook until the bottom of crust is golden brown, for 2 to 3 minutes. Brush olive oil on the top side of the flatbread and flip over closing lid to cook 2-3 minutes. Move to other side of bbq and allow to cook inside over indirect heat.
