Super fast summer meal using your favorite pizza dough and fresh garden veggies.
  • 2 pizza doughs (your favorite! store-bought or homemade -- you could even use one of those pre-cooked thick crusts. Or flatbreads. Go crazy)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 2 cups summer squash, coarsely chopped (I used the grilled squash recipe and chopped it after cooking)
  • 2 cups other veggies (options include onions, peppers, mushrooms, zucchini, broccoli, fresh tomatoes -- whatever you like)
  • bacon crumbles (this is optional and not in the photo shown but I think it would be DELICIOUS)
  • 2 cups shredded cheese (I used half sharp white cheddar -Cabot of course - and half part skim mozzarella)
  • fresh torn basil, crushed red pepper flakes, and shaved Parmesan cheese to garnish
  1. Heat the grill (if you are grilling your pizza) or the oven to 500 degrees. If you have a pizza stone use it! If you do not have a pizza stone, dust flour and a little cornmeal (if you have it) on the back of a baking sheet.
  2. Brush the first pizza crust with the olive oil. Sprinkle with half of the minced garlic.
  3. Evenly spread half of the squash, half of the veggies, and half of the cheese over the pizza.
  4. Bake for about 7 minutes, or until the crust is golden and starts to crisp and the cheese is bubbly. ***While one pizza bakes prepare the second one following the same instructions***
  5. Garnish with the basil, red pepper flakes, and Parmesan cheese.
