Rosemary Chicken, Potato & Caramelized Onion Grilled Pizza  

8 to 12 chicken tenders (about 1 pound) 
1/2 teaspoon salt, divided 
1/2 teaspoon fresh ground pepper, divided 
4 tablespoons plus 4 teaspoons olive oil, divided 
1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary 
1 clove garlic, minced 
2 medium sweet onions, thinly sliced 
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar 
4 baby new potatoes, thinly sliced 
1 pound prepared uncooked pizza dough
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese 
1/2 cup grated fresh mozzarella cheese 

Slice chicken tenders on diagonal into 1/4-inch pieces. Season with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper.  

In large sauté pan, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil over medium-high heat. Add chicken to pan and sauté 5 to 6 minutes, or until golden brown. Add chopped rosemary and stir to combine. Add garlic and stir for another minute, or until fragrant. Remove chicken to plate and reserve. 

In same pan, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium heat. Add onions and sauté for 10 to 15 minutes, or until onions are a deep golden brown. Stir in balsamic vinegar, and remove onions from heat. 

In nonstick sauté pan placed over medium-low flame, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil. Add potatoes and remaining salt and pepper. Sauté, tossing occasionally, for 6 to 8 minutes, or until potatoes are softened and lightly browned. 

Divide dough into four pieces. Roll out so each piece is about 8 or 9 inches in diameter. Heat grill to medium. 

Before placing on grill, brush one side of each pizza crust with 1 teaspoon olive oil. Place on grill grates, oil side down. Grill for 3 to 4 minutes, then turn. Top each pizza with onions, potatoes and chicken. 

Sprinkle with Parmesan and mozzarella cheeses. Close grill and cook for another 4 to 5 minutes, or until toppings are heated through and cheese is melted. Serve immediately, cutting each pizza into quarters. Yields 4 servings.
