Ingredients

  • 1 pound zucchini (cut into 1/4-inch slices)
  • 1/2 pound yellow squash (cut into 1/4-inch slices)
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • sea salt and black pepper
  • 1/2 pound pizza dough
  • 2 Tablespoons garlic oil (2 Tablespoons oil + 1 small garlic clove, pressed)
  • 1/2 cup feta cheese
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh thyme leaves (or fresh herb of your choice)

Instructions

  • Preheat the grill and bring the temperature to 350 degrees.
  • Toss the squash and zucchini together in a large bowl with the olive oil, sea salt, and black pepper.
  • Place the squash slices on a heated grill pan or straight on the grill grates. Cook until grill marks form, then flip them over to cook the other side.
  • Remove the cooked squash from the grill and place in a bowl. Keep warm and set aside.
  • Press your pizza dough out to form a 10 to 12-inch circle on a floured work surface.
  • Place the pizza dough onto the grill. Cover (close the lid) and cook for 2 minutes or until grill marks form on the bottom.
  • Flip the pizza crust over and remove from the grill. Brush the grilled side with garlic oil, then arrange the grilled squash slices on top slightly overlapping if necessary.
  • Return to the grill and cook until the bottom crust is golden and grill marks form.
  • Remove the pizza from the grill and top with crumbled feta cheese and fresh thyme. Slice and serve immediately.

Notes

  • For those who like things spicy, sprinkle crushed red pepper flakes over the finished pizza.
  • For those who like things saucy, drizzle Balsamic Glaze over the finished pizza if desired.
  • Add any other types of summer squash that you find interesting.
  • Grilled onion slices would also be a nice addition if desired.
  • If you have a large grill, preheat a baking stone on one side while grilling the squash on the other side. Never put a cold stone on a hot grill, it will crack!
  • If you are lucky enough to have a baking steel, you can cook your pizza on the steel after the squash has been grilled.
  • To make this pizza vegan, skip the feta cheese. Sprinkle with nutritional dry yeast for a salty, cheesy flavor.
