Ingredients
  

  • 1 small zucchini sliced
  • 1 small red pepper  cut into strips, seeds removed
  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 1/4 cup sliced red onions
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 lb pizza dough homemade or store bought
  • 2 tablespoons Land O Lakes® unsalted butter
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 4 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese torn
  • 1/2 cup grape or cherry tomatoes halved
  • 3 tablespoons freshly chopped basil

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the grill to high heat and brush the grill with a little bit of oil.
  • In a medium bowl, combine zucchini, red pepper, mushrooms, and red onion. Drizzle with olive oil and toss to coat. Season with salt and pepper. Place vegetables evenly on a grill pan that has been coated with cooking spray. Grill for 8 minutes or just until tender. Remove from grill and set aside.
  • Roll the pizza dough into a large oval on a lightly floured surface. Place the pizza dough on a lightly floured rimless baking sheet, or pizza peel.
  • In a small bowl, combined the melted butter and minced garlic. Brush the pizza dough with the garlic butter.
  • Slide the pizza dough directly onto the hot grill. Grill the pizza dough for about 2 minutes with the lid closed. Open the grill lid and flip the pizza carefully with a pair of tongs. Grill for 2-3 minutes more. The dough should be golden brown with grill marks on both sides. Remove the pizza from the grill.
  • Sprinkle fresh mozzarella cheese over the pizza, leaving a 1/2-inch border around edges. Arrange grilled vegetables evenly over the cheese. Grill pizza 3-5 minutes or until cheese melts and crust is golden brown. Remove pizza from grill and top with fresh tomatoes and basil.
  • Cut into slices and serve.
  • Note-if you don't have a grill, you can make this pizza in the oven. You can roast the vegetables at 400 degrees F and cook the pizza at 500 degrees F.
