Grilled Veggie Pizza Recipe

Excess summer bounty is perfect for this delightfully simple pizza. Grilling the veggies first brings out their sizzling flavors. “Also try it with a sprinkling of olives or pine nuts before adding the cheese.” —Susan Marshall, Colorado Springs, Colorado

Directions

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 7, 2013

"This was very very good. I actually used a locally made cheese that is sort of a taste between mozzarella and provolone. Next time I make it I would probably either season the veggies a little more or maybe use a red wine or balsamic vinegar."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 30, 2010

"I forgot to say...I made my own pizza dough, so that might have made a difference in the time the veggies needed."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 30, 2010

"My family wasn't too excited when they heard "no meat," but every single one of them ended up loving it!

The only thing I did differently (because I didn't have a grill wok or basket) was, after combining the first veggies/seasonings/liquids, I took out the zucchini and grilled them directly on the grill bars for 6-8 minutes. The rest of the veggies were soft enough to be perfectly done when the pizza was done."

MY REVIEW

"THis is absolutely D-LISH. Even my husband, "the meat eater", loved this pizza."
