Grilled Tomato-Eggplant Pizza

Grilled Tomato-Eggplant Pizza

Building a homemade pizza? For a light bite on the deck or patio, grill the toppings and the pizza for fire-roasted flavor! As an easy, savory topper, use canned diced tomatoes, flavored with herbs. Canned tomatoes deliver great year-round flavor as a pizza topper, and their beta-carotene and lycopene deliver more good nutrition!
