Grilled pesto and zucchini pizza
1 Tbsp, for rolling out dough
Whole wheat pizza dough
10 oz, at room temperature
Shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
2 cup(s), cut into ribbons with a vegetable peeler
2 Tbsp, thinly sliced (optional)
Crushed red pepper flakes
¼ tsp, (optional)
- Off heat, coat grill rack with nonstick spray. Preheat gas grill to medium-high, or prepare medium-high fire in charcoal grill.
- On lightly floured surface, roll or stretch dough to 12- to 13-inch- long oval. Coat top of dough with nonstick spray. Arrange dough, coated-side down, on hot grill rack. Grill until bottom of crust is charred and marked from grill, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer crust to cutting board or pizza peel and coat top with spray. Turn crust over, marked-side up.
- Spread pesto on top and sprinkle with cheese. Arrange zucchini on top. Transfer pizza to grill. Close lid and cook until cheese melts and bottom of crust is charred and marked from grill, 3 to 5 minutes. Sprinkle pizza with salt and black pepper. Garnish with basil and crushed red pepper (if using). Cut pizza into 8 pieces.
