Grilled Chicken Sausage, Spinach, and Mozzarella Pizza

8 reviews / 4.9 average

This weekend I learned a lot about myself.

I'm horrible at packing. For both personal safety and general efficiency, I cannot be trusted with a packing tape roller. An add-on to that would be that the cutter on the packing tape roller is surprisingly sharp. Also, wine glasses are hard to wrap.


I'm nervous about shots. Getting a shot makes me say unpredictable/untrue things to nurses. Getting a shot makes my arms hurt. For 3 days. I can't pack when my arms hurt, but I can eat cookies. I'll keep that lesson tucked away for next time.

Taylor Swift is set out to make me cry every day. I swear. Bjork has laid down a new “family law” that I'm no longer allowed to listen to T. Sweez while packing. Instead, I'm allowed Sean Kingston. Just picture that for one second.


Speaking of crying, I've learned that new levels of stress will make me cry unpredictably. Oh, hey GAP return lady? Oh, you won't let me return these shorts even though they make me look like I have a pillow stuffed in my rear end and I'm standing here at the counter WEARING them and asking for an exchange? Yes, I will cry about that.

Thank the Lord for the grill and pizza. I'm staying sane thanks to these two summer staples and a husband who knows how to make it all work. I don't really do grills.

These particular pizzas are pheNOMenal. First, chicken sausage. I ADORE CHICKEN SAUSAGE. Gold n' Plump has some awesome new flavored chicken sausages and they were perfect for this pizza and about one bajillion other things. We used the Parmesan Italian variety for this pizza and it was so so Parmesanly perfect.

Secondly, grilled crust. Why is it so amazing? Well, actually I think I know why (crispy outside, soft inside). But I just don't know why it happens like that, because I don't really do grills.

Thirdly, fresh basil. The end.

Grilled Chicken Sausage, Spinach, and Mozzarella Pizza


This is my favorite way to use chicken sausage! Sauteed and sliced, with Mozzarella cheese and fresh spinach, on a thin pizza crust, and grilled.


  • 3 garlic naan flatbreads (or any other prepared crust)
  • 3 chicken sausages, such as Gold n' Plump Parmesan Italian
  • 1 cup pizza sauce
  • 1 cup shredded Mozzarella
  • fresh spinach
  • fresh diced tomatoes
  • fresh basil
  • olive oil


  1. Preheat your grill to medium high. Cook sausages until browned and cooked through. You can make them sliced, in the casing, or ground, out of the casing (I like it better out of the casing).
  2. Spread naan with pizza sauce (1/3 cup per pizza). Top with chicken sausage, cheese, fresh spinach, and tomatoes - in any order.
  3. Grill for 15-25 minutes, until the bottom of the crust is brown and crispy and the cheese is melted. Sprinkle with fresh basil and drizzle with oil.

    Oh, you poor thing. I HATE packing and moving. HATE it! I usually end up sick in bed for part of it. My body hates it too. I also hate saying goodbye to cherished spaces – like homes. I feel for you. And I’m glad you have a hubs who grills.
    Mwa! Best to you, my dear. You’ll make it!

    We grilled pizza this weekend and it’s so amazing. I’m sorry to hear that you are feeling the stress of moving and changes. Thinking about you!

    My gosh, I can’t tell you how much I relate to spontaneous crying and craziness due to stress. I moved just two weeks ago and I’m still a bit of a basket case. It’s definitely wonderful to have an understanding man in your life who will grill your pizza for you while you cry over packing the wooden spoons. If I had it my way, everything I consume for the rest of the summer would come off the grill. I’ve never made grilled pizza and am very excited to try it. I share your mozerella and basil sentiments. Awesome recipe! Good luck with the move!

    Oh, shoot… Just reading about you packing to move is making me cry… And now I’m too choked up to eat my mandarin oranges. I miss you already.

      Aw, sad Jakky. I’m really going to miss you and the amazing EDG crew. Now please tell me you had more than mandarin oranges for lunch.

    I’ve tried grilling pizza a couple of times and the crust always seems to burn before the top is cooked. How do you solve this problem? Did you use an indoor grill so you can set the temperature exactly? We have a charcoal grill and there is no way of doing this 🙁 Was the naan bread you used raw? Give me all your tips!

    1. Skillful Cook Logo

      I’ll tell you what I know: the grill was an outdoor grill and the naan bread was pre-baked. And now I’ll go ask Bjork to respond to the rest. 🙂

    Good luck with packing, it’s the piiiiits. I’m VERY impressed and inspired by your move, and I’ll be thinking of you! xo

    I hope the packing is soon over. I hate it too.

    These pizzas looks fantastic! I’m always shocked when people post pretty pictures of pizza because mine always come out so ugly looking (although delicious :)) And I’ve never had a grilled pizza. Wah.

    1. Skillful Cook Logo

      Wah is right, lady! You need to get to a grill and get cookin! Or send your better half out to do the hard part for you. 😉

    Hi Linday,

    I grilled pizza just this Monday. The crust was a bit burnt but the pizaa was delicous anyway. I purchased your book a couple weeks ago and I just wanted to let you know that my photos have been published on Foodgawker and Tastespotting. Thanks for all your great tips!

    The pizza looks so summery and delicious. Thanks God my husband enjoys grilling too. I’m sorry to hear you’re so stressed out! 🙁

    That looks really good! Does the naan flatbread make it healthier than a normal pizza? I love pizza, but am looking for ways to make it better for me, so if you have any suggestions, please feel free to share!
