Herbed Flatbread Pizzas

Yield Serves 4
From Kathleen Burnham, Folsom, CA.This month, we picked a crisp, ingeniously light version of pizza. Burnham suggests grilling the vegetables if they're super ripe and juicy so the crust doesn't become soggy. "This recipe originated from a surplus of backyard 'weeds'--overgrown herbs," she says. "It's perfect for the summer, and goes well with a big salad."
