Cover grill; cook 12 to 18 minutes, turning once, until juice of chicken is clear when center of thickest part is cut (170°F). Reduce heat to medium-low.

Expert Tips

Instead of plain tortillas, try colorful flavored flour tortillas. Check the grocery store deli or a Latin American market for spinach, herb, garlic or tomato tortillas.

If you assemble these pizzas on rimless cookie sheets, the pizzas will slide easily on and off the grill. If all your cookie sheets have rims, just turn them upside down and assemble the pizzas on the underside.
