Grilled Zucchini & Pesto Pizza


Welcome to Farmer's Market Week! I started grilling pizza a few years ago, and I'm always experimenting and looking for new versions to try. I saw this Grilled Zucchini & Pesto Pizza in my current favorite Taste of Home cookbook, American Summer.


This one's all about the prep work.  Get your veggies and salami sliced, toss all your ingredients onto a tray and head out to the grill.  First you lay down your naan flatbreads and spread them with the pesto. 


Then you sprinkle on some mozzarella cheese.


Lay on the veggies and the salami (Whoops, almost forgot the salami! Added it after I took the pic).


Grill, covered for about 5 mins. You want the bottom crispy and the veggies tender.


Move to your platter, sprinkle with parmesan cheese and basil, and enjoy!


This is exactly how I like to eat in the summer.  Comes together quickly, doesn't heat up the house, super fresh, super delicious.   Thank you so much to Jessee A. for sharing the recipe!

Author: Jolene Martinelli

  • 2 cups shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1 each small zucchini and yellow summer squash, thinly sliced
  • 1 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 pound thinly sliced hard salami, chopped
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil leaves, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese

Instructions:

1. Over each naan, spread 2 tablespoons pesto; top with 1/2 cup mozzarella and one-fourth of the zucchini, onion and salami.
2. Grill, covered, over medium-low heat until mozzarella has melted and vegetables are tender, 4-6 minutes. Rotate naan halfway through grilling for evenly browned crust.
3. Remove from heat. Top each naan with basil and Romano; cut into thirds.
