Meatless Monday Recipe – Grilled Vegetable Flatbread Pizza

1 Sep

If you’re like me then just hearing the word “pizza” makes your mouth water.  I gave up cheese a loooong time ago but the one thing I have not and WILL NOT give up is pizza.  It’s probably one of my favourite foods in the whole world.  Good thing is that there are so many different ways of having your pizza without it wreaking havoc on your body.  For this last long weekend of the summer, I thought I would share this BBQ version of a vegetarian pizza that is sure to satisfy.

grilled flatbread pizza

Ingredients:

  • Any combination of fresh vegetables (peppers, onions, eggplant, zucchini, summer squash, mushrooms, etc) cut into slices
  • olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • Leafy green vegetables (spinach, arugula or other greens), cut into thin slices
  • chopped tomatoes or pesto
  • 1-2 slices naan bread
  • shredded Daiya Mozarella cheese (or regular mozarella)

Instructions:

Heat grill to high heat.

Toss sliced vegetables, except for leafy greens, in olive oil and season with salt and pepper.

Grill vegetables until lightly charred on both sides.

Brush both sides of naan bread with oil, and sprinkle lightly with salt.

Grill both sides of bread until lightly toasted.

Reduce grill heat to low.

Spread tomatoes or pesto over bread, and top with grilled vegetables, greens and cheese.

Place pizza back on grill and heat for an additional 2-3 minutes, to warm vegetables and melt any cheese.

Enjoy!
