Your garden's bounty will be put to good use in this delightful entree, which resembles a pizza. When I find a recipe like this that’s so well received, I make a copy, put it in a protective sleeve and store it in a binder so I can make it again.—Sharon Delaney-Chronis, South Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Yummy!!

My husband and I love this recipe. It's a great way to use extra vegetables and it's really easy to subsitute different ingredients for what we have on hand. The only thing we don't care for is the tortilla. We usually subsitute a pita for the tortilla and fry the remaining pitas to make pita chips.

I loved this! Grilling the tortillas gave them a really nice flavor and texture. I made my own pesto and it went perfectly with the grilled veggies. I included an eggplant and used parmesan cheese instead of mozzarella.
