If your companions simply can't be convinced to try anchovies, sub prosciutto. (It has twice the calories and fat--120 calories and 6g fat per ounce, compared to 60 calories and 3g fat for anchovies.)
Serves 4 (serving size: 1 pizza)

10 ounce refrigerated fresh pizza dough
Cooking spray
1 tablespoon cornmeal
1 large zucchini, sliced lengthwise into 1/4-inch-thick slices
1 tablespoon olive oil
3 garlic cloves, grated
2 ounces Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, grated (about 1/2 cup)
2/3 cup chopped red onion
1 1/2 cups halved cherry tomatoes
1.5 ounces anchovies, drained and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
2 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese, thinly sliced
1/4 cup thinly sliced fresh basil leaves
1 1/2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


Hands-on: 30 Minutes
Total: 30 Minutes

1. Preheat grill to high heat.

2. Divide dough into 4 equal portions. Roll each portion into a 7-inch circle on a floured surface. Place dough on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray and sprinkled with 1 tablespoon cornmeal. Place pizza dough rounds, cornmeal side up, on a grill rack coated with cooking spray. Grill 90 seconds or until blistered. Turn dough; grill 1 minute. Remove from grill. Place zucchini on grill rack coated with cooking spray. Grill 2 minutes on each side. Remove to a cutting board; cut into 1-inch pieces.

3. Combine oil and garlic in a small bowl; brush evenly over top of dough rounds. Sprinkle rounds evenly with Parmigiano-Reggiano. Top with zucchini, onion, and tomatoes, leaving a 1/2-inch border. Arrange anchovies over tomatoes; top with mozzarella cheese.

4. Reduce grill temperature to medium. Carefully return pizzas to grill; grill 4 minutes or until cheese melts and toppings are hot. Remove from grill. Sprinkle with basil, lemon juice, and black pepper before serving.
