2 portobello mushroom caps
1 tablespoon chopped garlic
1 large red bell pepper, cut into 1/2-inch strips
1 medium zucchini, cut diagonally into 1/2-inch-thick slices
1 red onion, cut into 1/2-inch wedges (root end intact)
5 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Cooking spray
8 ounces refrigerated fresh pizza dough
4 ounces shredded fontina cheese (1 cup)
1/4 cup thinly sliced fresh basil leaves
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper


1. Preheat grill to high heat.

2. Remove brown gills from undersides of mushrooms with a spoon; discard. Combine mushrooms, garlic, bell pepper, zucchini, onion, and oil in a bowl; toss to coat. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Arrange vegetables on grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 8 minutes or just until tender. Slice mushrooms.

3. Roll dough into a 12-inch oval on a lightly floured surface. Place dough on grill rack; grill 2 minutes on each side or until lightly browned.
