Grilled Pizza with Hummus and Rosemary Summer Squash


This is an easy summer entertaining dish because it all comes together on the grill. Purchasing premade whole-wheat pizza dough and protein-packed hummus makes this a nearly effortless meal. Try this pizza with different vegetables throughout the year, such as asparagus, eggplant and peppers.


Grilled Pizza with Hummus and Rosemary Summer Squash


2 small zucchini, sliced on the diagonal 1⁄4 inch (6 mm) thick

2 small yellow squash, sliced on the diagonal 1⁄4 inch (6 mm) thick

1 Tbs. finely chopped fresh rosemary

2 Tbs. olive oil, plus more for grilling

1 tsp. red wine vinegar

Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste

1 lb. (500 g) purchased whole-wheat pizza dough

All-purpose flour, for dusting

1 cup (10 oz./315 g) prepared hummus

Chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley for garnish (optional)


Prepare a grill for direct-heat cooking over medium high heat. Place the zucchini and squash in a bowl with the rosemary, 1 Tbs. of the oil and the vinegar. Season with salt and pepper and toss to coat. Set aside.


Punch the dough down and divide it into 4 equal portions. On a lightly floured work surface, roll each piece of dough until about 1⁄8 inch (3 mm) thick. Brush both sides of  the dough with the remaining oil and season with salt and pepper.


Oil the grill well. Place the dough rounds on the oiled, cool part of the grill and close the cover. Cook until the top of the dough bubbles and the bottom is grill-marked, about 90 seconds. With a long-handled spatula, flatten the bubbles and then flip  the dough and cook the other side for about 90 seconds. Transfer to a platter.


Grill the zucchini and squash slices until they are softened and grill marked, 2 to 3 minutes per side.


Spread the hummus on the pizzas, dividing evenly, and top with grilled vegetables. Sprinkle with parsley and serve immediately. Serves 4 to 6.

    You need a print version of the recipe only on your website. I don’t want
    a color picture. I just want the recipe. The color picture eats up all my
    Printer ink. Please have the option of a print version, black and white
    without the color picture, please. Most recipe websites even ask if you
    want 4 x 6, or 8 1/2 by 11 size.

    This looks tasty – I look forward to playing with the idea! I think I’d call it a flat bread though, rather than a pizza (just a matter of semantics and geography, I guess).

    Karen, you can copy and paste the recipe into your own file quite easily, or take a screen shot of the part you want to print.

    I think the included picture is good for people who prefer to have a visual when they cook, like my sister.
