Summer Squash Pizza

How are those gardens doing this year?  I really miss our garden this year, and I hope my husband decides to do one next year.  He hasn’t had any time really to be able to work in it this year, so it is good that we didn’t do it, but I hope he does have time again next year.

One of my favorite things about this time of year is picking fresh produce straight from the garden.  I miss that!

That hasn’t stopped me though from using fresh produce throughout the summer.  I decided to try this Summer Squash Pizza from Cooking Light because it sounded fresh and delicious.


It was exactly that!  This would make a wonderful meal paired with a salad or you could even make it as an appetizer.  We opted to do it as a meal with salad, making a light and delicious dinner.

Summer Squash Pizza

Yield: 6


  • 1 Tsp Olive Oil
  • 1 Tsp Balsamic Vinegar
  • 1/8 Tsp Garlic Salt
  • 1/8 Tsp Ground Black Pepper
  • 1 Medium Zucchini (cut lengthwise into slices)
  • 1 Medium Yellow Squash (cut lengthwise into slices)
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 12 Inch Gluten Free Pizza Crust or Dough
  • 1 Roma Tomato (cut into slices)
  • 1/4 Cup Finely Grated Italian Cheese
  • 1 Tsp Basil


  1. Prepare grill and warm to medium-high heat.
  2. Combine oil, vinegar, salt, pepper, zucchini, and squash in a large bowl, toss to coat.  Place the mixture onto a sheet of foil and wrap it up and secure.  Then, place it on the grill and grill for 2-3 minutes on each side or until tender.
  3. Place the pizza crust or dough on a sheet of foil sprayed with cooking spray.  Place the foil on the grill and grill for 2-5 minutes until the bottom is done.
  4. Carefully flip the pizza over removing from the foil.  At this point the uncooked side should be facing up.
  5. Arrange the veggies on the pizza along with the tomato slices.
  6. Add the basil and cheese.  At this point you can also add additional garlic salt if you prefer it.
  7. Cook another 2-5 minutes until the bottom is done and cheese is melted.

    Oh wow, this looks like a perfect summer meal! Light and delicious, and I know my family would absolutely love it. We’ve been spending a lot of time downtown (pokemon hunting, hehe), and stopping in at home to grab a bite to eat. This would be the BEST quick little lunch. Thanks for sharing <3
