Grilled Caprese Salad Pizza

capresepizza

I love this recipe because it makes vegetables taste so good. If you want to add a layer of pizza sauce you can, but make sure your portions aren’t too crazy! I think the pizza is just fine without the sauce. If you do not have pizza dough, you can always use wheat pita bread


 

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb. mixed tomatoes
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 4 tsp. olive oil
  • Kosher salt
  • pepper
  • ¼ c. Fresh basil
  • flour
  • 1 lb. pizza dough (thawed, if frozen)
  • 4 oz. part-skim mozzarella
  • 3 c. arugula
  • Shaved Parmesan

Instructions:

  1. Heat the grill to medium-high. In a large bowl, combine the tomatoes, garlic, 1 tablespoon oil, and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper; fold in the basil.
  2. On a lightly floured surface, shape the pizza dough into two 10-inch rounds.
  3. Place on a baking sheet and brush the top of each round with 1 teaspoon oil.
  4. Transfer to the grill, oiled-side down, and cook, covered, until the tops begin to bubble and the bottoms become crisp, about 2 minutes.
  5. Brush the top of each round with 1 teaspoon oil.
  6. Turn over, sprinkle the grilled sides with the mozzarella and cook, covered, until the bottoms are golden brown and crisp and the mozzarella has melted, about 3 minutes.
  7. Transfer to a cutting board.
  8. Fold the arugula into the tomato mixture. Spoon the mixture over the pizza; top with Parmesan, if desired.

Yield: 4 servings
