Just plain healthy recipe...
Grilled vegetable pizzas with bell pepper, red onion, zucchini, squash, red pepper, Mozzarella and basil on pizza crusts. A bit of olive oil helps to grill the vegetables crisp-tender.
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1 red bell pepper cut into quarters
4 slices red onion, cut one-quarter inch thick
1 medium zucchini, halved lengthwise
1 medium yellow squash, halved lengthwise
1 cup pizza sauce
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
2 10-inch prepared pizza crusts
2 cups shredded low fat Mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup sliced fresh basil leaves
Prepare grill for direct cooking.
Combine 2-tablespoons oil and garlic in small bowl; brush over bell pepper, onion, zucchini and squash. Place vegetables on grid. Grill, on covered grill, over medium heat ten minutes or until crisp-tender, turning halfway through grilling time. Remove vegetables from grill.
Slice bell pepper lengthwise into one-quarter inch strips. Cut zucchini and squash crosswise into one-quarter inch slices. Separate onion slices into rings.
Combine pizza sauce and red pepper flakes in small bowl. Top crusts with pizza sauce mixture, cheese and grilled vegetables.
Place pizzas, one at a time, on grid. Grill, covered, over medium-low heat five to six minutes or until cheese is melted and crust is hot.
Sprinkle pizzas with basil; cut into wedges. Serve warm or at room temperature.
