Grilled Veggie Pizza

When I was a kid, my mom decided to plant a garden. I was delighted with the notion, and made big plans to be an integral part of this garden planting business. Then kaboom! I got home one day to discover that my mother had planted the whole of it without me! Oh, the pain! The sadness! The drama! After drying my tears, I huffily marched to the garage, grabbed a spade and a shovel, and cleared my own little garden plot. Since the only vegetables I really ate were carrots and cucumbers, I proceeded to plant those two items ... heavy on the cukes. 

I promptly forgot about my mother's great garden betrayal, as well as the garden itself. A couple months later my mom began harvesting, and I thought, "Hey, yeah ... I have a garden, too!" Upon inspection, I discovered a small plot (ahem ... weed bed) that was filled with cucumbers. And so a gardener was born. 

This season, my husband and I planted too many summer squash plants, in which we are now wading. Hence today's Grilled Veggie Pizza ... it's that time of year, and it's an easy and amazing way to use up your bountiful harvest. Enjoy!

Grilled Veggie Pizza

Ingredients

Directions

I have made this on the grill and in a grill pan. Slice or chop the veggies and place them in a flat pan. Drizzle with Balsamic & Basil Dipping Oil, sprinkle with Seasoned Salt and Garlic Garlic Seasoning (or Italian Garlic Seasoning); marinate for 5 minutes to 2 hours. Grill veggies over medium heat until nicely charred. Spread Artichoke & Spinach Dip over pizza crust or pita bread. Add olives and meat; top with grilled veggies. Place the pizza on the grill or in a grill pan to crisp the crust and warm the dip layer. Top with Parmesan cheese. Testing notes: For the grill pan version, I sautéed some leftover ring bologna with the onion. I have also used asparagus, broccoli, cauliflower, potatoes and other veggies in this – all are delish. Cut potatoes and carrots thin, or par-boil them before grilling. The grill pan version was good … the grilled version was awesome! We served this with grilled bratwurst and a side of grapes. It’s a very delicious way to eat your veggies!
