Grilled Veggie Pizza
If you are not grilling pizza in the summer time, you are missing out on one of the best things in life. Gather your veggies, fire up your grill and prepare to be dazzled by vegetables. Variety is the spice of life, so don't be hindered by my suggestions of toppings. Throw whatever your heart longs for (or your garden grew) on this pizza!

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 10-12 minutes
1 pizza crust - try this recipe!
Zucchini, thinly sliced
Broccoli, in small florets
Banana pepper, sliced
Fresh Basil, torn into pieces
Fresh oregano, can use whole leaves
Salt to taste
Mozzarella cheese, sliced
Avocado or Tea Seed oil*
Now, I know you are wondering how much of each ingredient you will need, but honestly, that depends on your preference. Start slicing and topping that pizza crust and you will know what looks right to you. Unleash your inner chef and go with what feels right!
When it comes to the cheese, using a ball of mozzarella you slice yourself is going to taste and look far more pleasing. I actually used a cheese curd from a local farm in the above photo and simply added it in the last 5 minutes of baking since it is more fragile.
You can sub in garlic powder and sprinkle it all all over. Also, if you loves the taste of herbs, sprinkle on some Italian Seasoning as well. Sprinkle on the salt in moderation, you can always add more after baking.
Drizzle the oil with reckless abandon. Ok, ok, don't douse the pizza, but after you have added all of the toppings, the oil is key to helping the toppings cook and not just dry up and burn. So drizzle to primarily coat the toppings, but also be aware it will spread out, so don't go to the point it is going to run everywhere and you will end up with a grill full of oil.
*Due to the high cooking temperature I do not recommend olive oil.
Preheat grill to 450°F
Coat pizza pan with oil. Place crust of choice on pan. (If using pre-cooked pizza crust, follow their directions for cooking). Add toppings, drizzle with oil, and cook for 9-11 minutes if using the recommended crust recipe. Be aware that on the grill the pizza can go from prefect to burned quickly, so keep a close eye near the end of cook time.
I honestly look forward to this white pizza every summer. It is my absolute favorite pizza. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do 🙂
