Grilled Zucchini & Pesto Pizza

In the great outdoors, we surprise our fellow campers who don't think it's possible to have standout pizza in the backwoods. This one with zucchini proves our point! —Jessee Arriaga, Reno, Nevada

    Used zucchini and yellow summer squash, parm instead of romano. Exactly how I like to eat in summer. Delicious but quick to prepare!

    This recipe is so good, I've made it twice in a week already! The second time I made it, it started raining outside. So I preheated the oven to 350 with a pizza stone. Then, I threw the pizzas on the heated stone. Since I have a gas grill, the taste out of the oven was identical to to the grill because the stone provided the crispy naan. I was a little worried how the raw red onions would taste on the pizza, but just the 5 minute cooking time soften them to perfection!

    This recipe is delicious! I took some liberties though: couldn't find zucchini (I know! What supermarket doesn't have zucchini?) so I used broccoli; I added tomatoes; didn't use salami because I'm vegetarian; and I used Monterey Jack cheese instead of mozzarella. But I love this! Definitely making these again!
