Grilled Zucchini Pizza

I have shared on Instagram stories and in July coffee date that last Sunday we grilled pizza. Yes, you can grill pizza! I used Simply Recipes recipe as a guide and made whole wheat and white pizza in an effort to clean out the freezer before we move. I buy and freeze dough from local Italian bakery.

So… I also had a few large zucchini I intended to turn into zucchini boats which seems almost impossible to happen due to heat or my “laziness”. They just sound so much work, am I wrong?! I decided to make myself some low carb grilled zucchini pizza (bites) to go with a few slices of a real deal. The process is documented in Insta stories and there is also 95% indication you wanted the recipe.

True beauty! My Italian friend taught me to cut pizza with kitchen shears. Is that news to you?

So… I grilled my zucchini pizza and drizzled with balsamic dressing + garlic from strawberry spinach salad just because one reader said she uses it on everything. I followed her advice and she is absolutely right! And as for toppings put tomato sauce on top and just go for it – I personally had to use up frozen soft goat cheese and wilting basil haha.

Enjoy!

How to Make Grilled Zucchini Pizza

  1. Make balsamic dressing. You will keep leftovers refrigerated for weeks to come to drizzle on ANY salad. balsamic dressing in glass measuring cup
  2. Slice each zucchini lengthwise into thick 4 slices – think easy to maneuver on the grill.
  3. Preheat grill to 500 degrees F and spray with cooking spray or oil the way you usually do. Place zucchini, close the lid and grill for 2 minutes. Transfer on a platter flipping so the grilled side is up. Keep BBQ closed. zucchini on grill
  4. Now make “pizza” by spreading tomato sauce then topping with basil, goat cheese and tomatoes each zucchini slice until you run out of ingredients. P.S. Please remind me to get a table next to the grill in my new house.pizza dough and toppings
  5. Transfer back on the grill, close the lid and grill for 3-4 minutes. Transfer on a platter and drizzle with balsamic dressing. Serve hot or cold, both are OMG good!Grilled Zucchini Pizza
