You can use all zucchini or yellow squash for this grilled pizza. Serve one slice as an appetizer or two with a salad for a simple supper.
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 medium zucchini, cut lengthwise into (1/4-inch-thick) slices
1 medium yellow squash, cut lengthwise into (1/4-inch-thick) slices
1 (12-inch) packaged pizza crust (such as Mama Mary's)
2 plum tomatoes, cut into (1/8-inch-thick) slices
1/4 cup (1 ounce) finely grated pecorino Romano cheese
2 tablespoons thinly sliced fresh basil
1/2 teaspoon finely chopped fresh oregano
How to Make It
Combine oil, vinegar, salt, pepper, zucchini slices, and yellow squash slices in a large bowl, tossing gently to coat. Place squash mixture on grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 2 minutes on each side or until tender.
Reduce grill temperature to medium.
Lightly coat pizza crust with cooking spray; grill 1 minute on each side or until lightly toasted. Arrange zucchini and squash over crust. Arrange tomatoes over squash; sprinkle with pecorino Romano cheese. Grill 5 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Remove from grill; sprinkle with basil and oregano.
I love, love, love this pizza!! Instead of cooking it on my grill, I cooked it on my pizza cooker that sits on the counter. It seems to make the crust crunchier. I also added spinach with the basal on the crust, and shredded cheese along with the romano. This pizza is very easy to make as a quick meal, and the recipe is simple and allows you to be creative with your pizza
My family LOVED this recipe! In addition to the recipe I also sauteed some yellow onion, spinach, and fresh garlic and placed it under the layer of squash and zucchinni.. and instead of fresh tomatoes I used Bertolli marinara and topped it with mozzerella and parm cheese and fresh basil... wonderful recipe to play with!
