Most gas barbecues will do an amazing job acting like a pizza oven. If you follow the tips bellow you should have great success.  Pizza’s succcess comes from its versatility and its variations. You can always add meat too, if you’d prefer a non-vegetarian option.  Try cured or pre-cooked meats like pepperoni, ham, prosciutto, bacon, anchovies or diced chicken. 

Try our Greek and Italian versions suggested bellow or just create your own variation. 

Greek Barbecue Flatbread Pizza

Spread olive oil and seasoning on a pita. Pile on some classic Greek ingredients like tomatoes, onions, peppers and olives then top with feta cheese.

Italian Flatbread Pizza

  • 2 flat breads naan, or pita with no pocket
  • ½ cup grated mozzarella cheese or cheese blend
  • ½ cup chopped mushrooms
  • ½ cup chopped marinated artichoke
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh basil

Greek Flatbread Pizza

  • 2 flat breads
  • ½ cup grated feta cheese
  • ½ cup diced tomatoes
  • ½ cup chopped green peppers
  • ½ cup chopped white onion
  • ¼ cup sliced olives pitted
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh basil
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp black pepper


  • Preheat your multi-burner gas barbecue to high and close the cover. If you have a thermometer, get the temperature up to about 550 F.
  • Line 2 cookie trays with parchment paper.
  • Place the flatbreads on the trays (curved side up).
  • Prepare the topping ingredients.
  • Spoon the tomato sauce onto the two Italian pizzas and spread evenly on the bread right to the edges. Season with garlic salt and chili flakes
  • Spoon the olive oil onto the two Greek pizzas and spread evenly on the bread right to the edges. Season with salt and pepper
  • Evenly distribute the appropriate topping ingredients to each of the pizzas. Leave the cheese for last and sprinkle on top.
  • Reduce the temperature to low on the barbecue burner(s) where you’ll place the cookie sheets and leave the other(s) on high to maintain a temperature above 450 F.
  • Place the pizzas in the barbecue on the sheets and close the cover.
  • Cook for about 7 to 10 minutes, depending on the temperature. Check after about 5 minutes to make sure the underside of the bread is not burning. Turn off the burner(s) directly below the tray if they are starting to burn the bread. They are done when the bread is slightly crisp, lightly toasted on the bottom and the cheese is bubbling.


Slice with a pizza cutter into wedges if serving as an appetizer for 8 to 10 people or serve whole as an individual pizza for four.
