This zucchini pizza recipe is a delicious, healthy meal.
It's great if you're looking for a light alternative to a heavier pizza topping.
Zucchini is such a versatile vegetable, it was bound to find its way onto a pizza crust sooner or later!
The flavors are subtle, yet combine beautifully into a gourmet pizza treat.
Mince garlic with a knife then mash (or use garlic press) with a pinch of salt. Transfer to a bowl and stir in 1 teaspoon of olive oil.
Prepare your dough by shaping it into a circle or rectangle. You can also use a Boboli type crust for simplicity. Place on cookie sheet or baking stone and rub with olive oil.
Toss sliced zucchini with a pinch of salt and 1 tablespoon olive oil in a bowl. Lightly grill zucchini on a gas grill or indoor grill pan. Turn occasionally, until tender, roughly 5 minutes.
Bring dough, garlic oil and cheese to grill and place dough, oiled side down, on grill until it turns golden brown, about 2-3 minutes.
Flip crust and brush with garlic oil. Sprinkle with cheese, then zucchini, overlapping the slices a bit. Sprinkle another layer of cheese on zucchini. Cover grill and cook pizza about 4 minutes.
Take pizza off grill and sprinkle with oregano and olive oil.
