I have been craving pizza for months and months but not just any pizza but a grilled pizza. There are so many toppings and sauces for pizza that I could have a different pizza every single day.  But I was thinking maybe garlic chicken plus roasted fresh hatch green chile.   And maybe follow with mushrooms and loads of cheese to make an awesome green chile pizza.

But even though I love my homemade red pizza sauce, I wanted to do this pizza a little different.  And believe it or not but sauce is not always a requirement for a great pizza.  Start this pizza off by making my homemade pizza dough but you could certainly use store bought.  And then top it with a combination of grilled garlic chicken, mushrooms, and roasted green chile.   And even though I made this pizza on the grill, they can easily be baked in the oven on a pizza stone.
