Grilled Vegetable Pizza

Why order in? The barbecue's high heat blisters the crust in just the right way, giving the look and taste of pizza from a wood-burning oven. This recipe makes enough for a starter or side dish, but you could easily double or triple as needed for a main course.


  • 2 ripe but firm plum tomatoes

  • 1 small zucchini

  • 2 green onions

  • olive oil

  • pinches (generous) salt

  • pinches (generous) black pepper

  • pinches (generous) dried basil leaves

  • 1 large Greek-style flat pita

  • 1/2 cup goat cheese, or crumbled feta


  • Lightly oil grill and preheat barbecue to medium high. Thickly slice tomatoes. Cut zucchini diagonally into long ovals. Place in a large bowl along with whole green onions. Drizzle with just enough oil to coat. Sprinkle with seasonings. Stir to coat. Brush 1 side of pita with oil.

  • Place the vegetables on grill and barbecue until tender and lightly charred, 2-5 minutes per side, removing them as they are done.

  • Next, place pita on grill and barbecue, with lid closed, just until grill marks form, 1-2 minutes per side. Crumble goat cheese over hot pita, then arrange tomatoes and zucchini on top. Slice onions and scatter overtop.

  • Makes 2 servings.
