Grilled Summer Veggie Pizza

A couple weeks ago I explained how we plan our weekday meals using dinner templates. Like I mentioned, we usually do pizza night on Fridays and sometimes that means homemade pizza. It’s easy and fun! Plus we have tons of great ingredients from our network of family farmers available in the Green Bean Delivery online store.

Since it’s grilling season, we enjoy throwing pizzas on the grill from time to time. This grilled pizza recipe showcases local, seasonal produce and even local artisans.

Instructions

  • Heat grill to medium. In a large bowl, combine zucchini, tomatoes, and 1 tablespoon oil; season with salt and pepper.
  • Add veggies to grill, turning occasionally, until vegetables are tender, 6 to 9 minutes. Tomatoes have the best results if grilled skin side up first then flip to skin side down.
  • Brush a large baking sheet with 1 tablespoon oil.
  • On a lightly floured work surface, divide dough in half.  Roll or stretch to form two 9-inch ovals.  Transfer to prepared sheet, and brush with remaining tablespoon of oil and season with salt.
  • Transfer dough pieces to grill. Cook until undersides are firm and beginning to char, 1 to 2 minutes.
  • Using tongs or a large spatula, transfer crusts, grilled side up, back to baking sheet.
  • Divide evenly, top crusts with pizza sauce, basil puree, goat cheese, and then grilled veggies; season with salt and pepper.
  • Slide back onto grill and cook, rotating occasionally, until crusts are cooked through, 3 to 5 minutes.
  • Transfer pizzas to cutting board, cut in half, garnish with a handful of arugula salad, and serve.
