Grilled Vegetable Pizza

I love homemade pizza and this was the perfect summer is almost over pizza (I can feel fall in the air and it makes me happy).  There are so many fun and delicious ways to eat a pizza.  Here are some of our favorites (it was hard too choose).  Todd's-grilled vegetable or corn, bacon and leek. Mine-grilled vegetable or zucchini and ricotta.  Noah's-tomato basil or corn, bacon and leek.  Preston's-corn, bacon, and leek and Stella's-tomato basil.  How do you eat your pizza?

Grilled Vegetable Pizza

Tomato sauce
1 orange bell pepper, seeded and quartered
1 small zucchini, sliced 1/8-in-thick
1 small yellow squash, sliced 1/8-in-thick
1 small red onion, cut into wedges
Olive oil
Fresh mozzerella, torn into pieces
Kosher salt
Red pepper flakes

Place pizza stone on bottom rack of the oven (if you have one). Preheat oven to 500 (or the ovens highest temperature).

Heat grill to medium-high heat. Lightly coat all the vegetables with olive oil and season with kosher salt. Arrange vegetables on grill rack coated with cooking spray, and grill until crisp-tender and grill marks appear. (If you don't want your onions falling through the grill rack like mine did, put the onion wedges on a skewer before grilling). Remove vegetables from grill. Coarsely chop bell pepper.

Shape pizza dough into desired shape and place on a flour and cornmeal dusted cookie sheet that has been flipped upside down. Very quickly slide the pizza from the cookie sheet to the pizza stone (if you don't have a pizza stone, place cookie sheet (with pizza on it) on the bottom rack of the oven). Bake pizza dough for 4 minutes. Remove partially baked crust from oven. Spread a thin layer of tomato sauce on the crust followed zucchini, squash, peppers and onions. Top pizza with torn pieces of fresh mozzarella and a good sprinkle of kosher salt and red pepper flakes. Carefully return pizza to pizza stone. Bake until pizza crust is golden and the cheese is melted goodness. Remove from oven and serve with additional red pepper flakes and kosher salt.
