Grilled Zucchini and Squash Flatbread

Veggie gardens are coming full on this month so the abundance of squash, tomatoes, fresh herbs and the like will be available everywhere. I love grilling my veggies. And I also love grilling a pizza or flatbread. Did you know that if you use a store bought pizza and you set it out for about a half an hour it kind of ferments and has a more home made and flavorful taste?

16 oz. store-bought pizza dough or homemade
1 zucchini
1 yellow squash
1/2 red onion
1/4 c feta cheese
2 Tbs red wine vinegar
1 Tbs olive oil, plus 1 1/2 Tbs reserved
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
4-5 basil leaves

Cut zucchini, squash and red onion in 1/4″ slices, add to a shallow dish. Mix 1 Tbs of olive oil, vinegar, oregano, salt and pepper and pour over vegetables. Marinate 30 minutes. Remove pizza dough from refrigerator, and let it rest for 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 450 degrees and insert baking stone in oven. If you don’t have one, insert a baking sheet. Heat up your grill and proceed with grilling all the vegetables.

Lightly flour your work surface and form the dough into desired shape. Brush with the remaining 1 1/2 Tbs of olive oil. Arrange vegetables on top of dough. Sprinkle with feta cheese.

Bake for 9-12 minutes or until crust is golden brown.

Chiffonade basil leaves and sprinkle over pizza. Serves 2-4.

Beautiful meals mean al fresco dining with your favorite serving pieces and cloth napkins.
