This is one of my favorite grilled dishes. Featuring garden-fresh vegetables and a light pesto sauce, the pizzas are especially popular because each family member can add whatever toppings he or she prefers.—Martha Haseman, Hinckley, Illinois

Nutritional Facts

One serving (1 pizza) equals 430 calories, 16 g fat (5 g saturated fat), 19 mg cholesterol, 579 mg sodium, 55 g carbohydrate, 5 g fiber, 18 g protein. Diabetic Exchanges: 2-1/2 starch, 2 lean meat, 2 fat, 1 vegetable.

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the flours, yeast, salt and sugar. Add water and oil; mix just until a soft dough forms. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 5-7 minutes. Cover and let stand for 10-15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a blender, combine the pesto ingredients. Cover and process until smooth, scraping sides often. Set aside.
  3. Divide dough into fourths. Roll each portion into a 6-in. circle. Moisten a paper towel with cooking oil; using long-handled tongs, lightly coat the grill rack.
  4. Prepare grill for indirect medium heat using a drip pan. Place dough over the direct heat area. Cover and cook for 1 minute or until puffed and golden. Turn and place dough over drip pan.
  5. Spread pesto over crusts. Top with 2/3 cup mozzarella cheese, tomatoes, onions, pepper, Parmesan and remaining mozzarella. Grill, covered, over indirect medium heat for 3-5 minutes or until cheese is melted and crust is lightly browned. Yield: 4 servings.
Editor's Note: Individual prebaked Italian bread shells may be substituted for the homemade crust.
